The Balanced Life And Radical Self Care

 
When you live a Balanced Life, you are better equipped to handle what life throws at you.
Why do I prefer to talk about the balanced life, instead of self-care. Self-care conjures up pictures of a spa day, Massage, exercise, and sometimes people throw in meditation.

Physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and relational. When […]
