Overcoming The Barriers To Self-Care with Sarah Simon
Are you ready to have your socks blessed off? We’re going way back into my past and meeting one of my best college friends, Sarah Simon - the watercolor artist behind The Mint Gardener. Since college, we both have gone in different directions - I’ve obviously pursued fitness and nutrition coaching, and she has pursued art.
But our hearts are eternally woven together with the same passion to see women experiencing wholeness in their body and mind, to be creative, to not have the pressure of expectations and the demands of perfectionism, and to be filled with grace to take a breath and to do the things that are truly life giving for the soul.
The way we take care of our bodies as moms must include so much more than just regular workouts and healthy meals. We also need moments where we can do something that allows us to step back and marvel at something lovely that we just accomplished, whether that’s painting a flower for 10 minutes or planting a flower pot.
So it may seem odd that I have a watercolor artist on the show today, but after meeting Sara, you’re quickly going to realize that it’s not bizarre at all.
