The Ultimate Journey of Self-Care

The Ultimate Journey of Self-Care

www.cufitness.com
Self-Care is an area we tend to discount - we believe doing things for ourselves that require time and commitment are luxuries and indulgences which are considered excessive, when it’s the ONE THING that can change the game for us in every aspect of our lives.So many things can constitute self-care and everything we do for us is a journey. It’s not a one size fits all approach so what works for one person may not work for someone else. Each day we not only learn more about ourselves, but we evolve more into the ultimate creations we are intended to be. When we say yes to us, it’s all possible.Tune in each week for real talk about all aspects of self-care: health, fitness, spirituality and mindfulness, travel and leisure, and a whole lot more. Get on your journey of self-care with me and we’ll travel the road together. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
