It’s easy to put yourself last on the priority list, particularly when you’re in the trenches of early parenting or are overwhelmed by the daily challenges and demands of, well, LIFE. But (you know what I’m going to say) it’s during those times when you need “me” time most.
In Episode 38 of Edit Your Life, Christine and I discuss the moving target that is “me” time, and share 10 doable strategies that challenge the mindset that self-care is selfish.
