This Is Why I’m Thankful for Self-Care

Updated: Apr 28

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, what are you most grateful for?

Thank you, thank you, thank you, self-care—and butternut squash soup.

In the acknowledgments section of my second book, How to Stay Calm in Chaos: An Everyday Self-Care Guide, I thank my self-care practices. They are what carry me through my many roles: full-time working mom, wife, author, yoga teacher and self-care speaker. They’ve been my foundation for doing all the things throughout a global pandemic.

It is through the journaling, meditating, practicing yoga, exercising, deep breathing, connecting with nature and preparing deeply nourishing meals where I can truly take care of myself, and share how others can do the same so they can live well, too.


As you gather with family and friends this holiday season, be sure to be truly present with them. Put your smartphone down and start living. There is so much to be thankful for, beginning with ourselves and the people we love.
