WELLNESS TIP WEDNESDAY: Why you need to know your self care kryptonite

  Last week my video was about why you need to know your own #1 self care habit.  It is good to get clear on which self care habits make a difference for you — and to commit to staying consistent. But even with that commitment, you probably still notice that sometimes you have good days and sometimes you have bad days when it comes to your self care. What makes that happen? For many of us, it’s that one thing that can act like a trigger — causing your […]
