The change blog written by Stephanie Burg has a great article about self-care and self-compassion. She talks frankly about her own life experience. When she was a ballerina she regularly had to over-ride the warning signals her body was sending her, which resulted in significant injuries and eventually led her to leave the profession.
As a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach she began to work with women from every walk of life and realised that she had a lot to learn from her clients. She found out about the different ways in which they respected and took care of their bodies. Why not take a look?
