Self-care is more than pedicures and herbal tea. It includes the stuff that may not be relaxing (or even pleasant) in the moment but is foundational to your health and well-being, and therefore your happiness. In Episode 165, Christine and Asha get real about their own self-care track records, and offer gentle encouragement to prioritize the self-care tasks that rarely make it onto the “treat yourself” lists.
