This week, I’m talking all things self-care with Vanessa Mentor, coach, teacher and the creator of Living Unrestrained.
As an advocate of self-care, Vanessa helps people re-learn how to give without over-giving and love without people-pleasing so they can live the life they say they want.
In this episode, Vanessa and I tackle sanity and self-care, being fierce in attending to yourself and your needs, pausing and easing, how to reframe busyness into intentional choices, and what it truly means to be generous.
We also talk about how self-care is a radical act that’s especially needed right now and flip a few things you might be thinking about taking care of yourself on their head!
