As women we get very used to putting others ahead of ourselves. We look after our families, our friends and our colleagues and often lose sight of how to best look after ourselves. When we do this we often wear ourselves out and then we wonder why we have so little energy, why we seem to have trouble remembering things and why our life seems quite unrewarding and lacking in pleasure and joy.
This workshop looks at why it is so important to look after ourselves in nurturing, encouraging and healthy ways and how cherishing ourselves is one of the keys to better relationships, better health and a happier self.
