In this session, we will explore:

- lifestyle suggestions
- self-care suggestion survey
1) THE ROLE OF SELF-CARE
Self-care is our anchor.
Amidst the swirling chaos of life, caring for our bodies, minds and spirits is ONE thing we have complete and total control over.
Even when our schedules are overwhelming, we have the ability to press PAUSE and breathe deeply. We have the ability to think intentionally about our next month. We have the ability to create time and space to tend to ourselves.
Self-care is the reference point for everything else in our lives. It is the hinge that holds us to our highest selves.
2) LIFESTYLE SUGGESTIONS
Practicing lifestyle habits that are different from what we currently do is a way to interrupt the flow when things feel stressful or overwhelming. When we practice habits that are designing to bring more balance and health into our lives, we feel relief and find more energy to keep up with the demands of our lives.
The macrobiotic diet from Japan includes nutrition choices that may be unrealistic for you, but it also includes habits for one's entire life.
