FreMindfullStresse Self-Care Strategy Sessions During August

Dina Hansen, founder of Mindful Stress Solutions and author of the book, Stop Eating Your Stress, is offering free Self-Care Strategy Sessions this month. She said that most women tend to only focus on taking care of the needs of others, feeling like they need to do it all; putting their self-care low on the “to-do list” or leaving it off entirely. When this happens, women become depleted and burn-out more easily which results in a laundry list of physical ailments, over-eating, over-spending, a strain on relationships, a poor self-image and poor job performance just to name a few. However, when women learn how to make their self-care a priority they find balancing their unique needs with needs of others easier to do without burnout or feeling unappreciated. To learn more visit MindfulStressSolutions.com or to schedule a free Self-Care Strategy Session call 415-3727.
