This week we’re wrapping up our mental wellbeing month! We had some amazing guests on in the last month and we can’t wait to dive even deeper with you into this topic and explore it even further!


Right now we’re in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic. With this in mind, self-care and wellbeing are even more important than ever. We all want to feel more comfortable in our skin, to feel more grounded and balanced, and to release additional stress. What’s key for this is to understand what our own definition of wellbeing is and in today’s episode, we explore exactly that. How can we use this time to actually become closer with ourselves, grow, and practice even more self-care than ever before? We hope you’ll join us!
