How to Take Self-Care Off the Back Burner & Advocate For Your Wellbeing w/Jaime McFaden

As women, we’re born and bred in a world where self-care is seen as selfish, a luxury or something that’s always out of reach. We often put ourselves so low on the priority list, we end up falling apart, lacking energy and miserable, with bodies we don’t feel good in.

We’re taught to be okay with putting ourselves on the backburner, so how do we start paying attention to self-care? How do we advocate for our own wellbeing?

In this episode, self-care specialist, podcast host and best selling author of “WAVES of Self-Care”, Jaime McFaden shares her process for making ourselves a priority and how to internally take responsibility for ourselves.

We’re force fed so much information about what we’re supposed to do and what we’re supposed to look like, and it’s a traumatic experience because we’re taught to put ourselves on the backburner.
