06: Being Gentle with Yourself: The First Step of Self-Care

In keeping with the theme of the last two episodes, today we wrap up the 3-part series on love by talking about self-love.

Taking care of ourselves is the ultimate act of self-love, so I want this episode to be a reminder for us to be kind to our minds and to be aware of the messages that we are telling ourselves, so that we can move to a place of self-compassion and self-love.

I hope you find a little tip in today’s talk that resonates with you, and you know that you are not alone on your journey of self-discovery and self-care.

Until next time, keep on practicing and keep on being authentic and brave!
