Learning how to master the balance of self-care is something that so many of us crave, and today I am joined by a woman who has done just that, Brianne Hovey. Brianne believes that our belief system, and receiving merit based on what you do for others, has skewed our minds and bodies into self-care sabotage. She is on a mission to help you change your beliefs and therefore change your goals and your impact on the world around you.
By rewriting your belief system you can begin to take care of yourself and therefore take care of the world. Today we are dismissing myths about self-care, stressing the importance of how you talk to yourself, and how to listen to what your mind, body, and heart needs to be happy.
It is okay to put yourself first and express love for yourself. Daily gratitude practices, learning how to delegate and holding 100% accountability for yourself are all ways in which you can begin to take better care of yourself. We have the answers to what our bodies and minds need to flourish inside of each and every one of us, and it’s time to start listening.
