The Secret to Self-Care in Real Life: 20 Ideas Beyond Baths & Massages

Looking for the secret to self-care in real life?

This episode for the Feel Good Effect podcast is packed with ideas that go well beyond bubble baths, massages, and journaling.


Self-care is trending right now, and for good reason.

Because if self-care means intentionally taking care of yourself: mind, body, soul, then absolutely, let’s start a self-care revolution!

The problem?

All the self-care lists out there seem to be packed with ideas that frankly seem unrealistic.

Because as much as I love a good bubble bath + hour-long message, this working mama–who’s balancing entrepreneurship, family, life responsibilities, and taking care of herself–well, let’s just say there aren’t a lot of bubble baths happening around here.
