Balancing Everyday Life
Natalie says we need to look at the holistic approach to health, holistic which refers to addressing the whole person. When we ignore one aspect of life, we become unbalanced. It gets heavier the longer we hold it.
Natalie describes Self-Care as any activity that we do deliberately to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It leads to a good relationship with oneself and others.
