The less-structured nature of summer can be wonderful, but it also can make it challenging to prioritize your own needs and interests. In Episode 171, Christine and Asha talk about what they’re calling the Summer of Self—their collective desire, need, and intention to put themselves back in the center. They discuss how the Summer of Self has played out in relation to work, recreation, self-care, family, local and far-flung adventures, home, and relationships.
