Stop Sharing that Privileged, Sexist Self-Care Article on Your Facebook

I’ve seen this article circulating social media in the last few days, and I don’t like it. I do agree with some points. I agree that self-care has become an overused buzzword (guilty), and that self-care can mean doing something hard that you don’t want […]

30 Days of Affirmations

30 Days of Affirmations

I was up most of the night, tossing and turning, feeling so much pain for one of my friends. He’s in very poor condition in the hospital after emergency surgery to remove his lung due to infection. His organs are failing. I refreshed my Facebook […]

Self-Care, Supplements, and Shavasana: Join my Facebook Group!
