How To Prioritize Self-Care And Reset Your Stress Response

Episode 737 18m


Taking care of yourself, practicing self-love and self-compassion, working on a growth mindset, building relationships and community, and having a sense of purpose are all crucial to living a fulfilling, long, healthy life.

Your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are all transmuted into biological signals that change your gene expression, impacting your immune function, hormones, microbiome, neurotransmitters, neuroplasticity, mitochondria, and more. Yet many of us tend to put self-care last on our list of to-dos (I certainly have for much of my life, to the detriment of my own health).

In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I share my strategies for prioritizing self-care for a healthy mind and spirit.
