Taking care of ourselves is a radical act. It is through listening to your body, cultivating emotional intelligence, and utilizing whole foods and herbs that you can create your own unique and empowered self-care routine. When we create space to care for and honor our mental and emotional health, without judgment or shame, we find great personal and collective power.
