Permission for Self Care Granted with Dr Alex Carrasco
Season 2, Episode 5[DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_PLUS] Self care, self care, self care...I am sure you've heard this before. We know we need to do it but how and what is it really?! Like so many other hot topics there are phrases that get thrown around until they become just empty words devoid of meaning and impact. So let's take them back. Let's pick it apart and dig in to what caring for ourselves looks like, why it's important (actually vital), and how to integrate into our oh so very busy lives. I'm your host Rachel Maskell and in today's episode of the #mumboss podcast I bring on Dr Alex Carrasco to answer some burning mama questions around self care.
