This week, instead of addressing a question that was sent in, I wanted to talk about self-care. Take a listen to hear why self-care and self-compassion aren’t just feel-good things to do, but actually imperative if we’re planning on changing the world for the better. (And of course, don’t forget to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you’d like me to tackle any questions related to how to make light in your own lives!)
