The Self Care Creature Podcast

Self-care is a lifelong commitment of continually choosing to show up for yourself (and that’s not a linear path)to know what you need, what best serves you, and how to honor your well-being without sacrificing your health or worth, so you can show up as you truly are in this world and be there with and for the people you care about. There's nothing dazzling or limiting about this. It's true inner work, for an honest peace of mind, which leads to a high quality life. We are all capable of this.
