This is a book of conversations to consider thinking better about yourself while you’re at work helping and caring for others. Your feelings, your emotions, how you think and what you do about them matter. They either feed or starve your holistic health and well-being.
I sat down and talked with a few friends and colleagues about you. The various topics we discussed about the mind, body, and spirit were intriguing and thought-provoking. I imagine you are probably taking good care of yourself and that is to be commended. However, there are usually some areas where we can maximize self-care.
I invite you to listen in on the conversations I had with:
