How do you look at self-care? Naomi Gottlieb-Miller joins me this week and divides it in three self-care strategies. The daily, almost routinely, the regularly and the luxury self-care. We explore the reason why we think we’re not (doing) enough and how it all comes down to the question “Are you happy?”

Naomi is a mother of two, a yoga teacher, a wellness coach, a wife and so much more. In this episode we go through her path of motherhood, her relationship with self-care growing up and her struggles with keeping up self-care when she just became a mom. She has a beautiful way of explaining the three self-care strategies so it doesn’t sound overwhelming or a luxury.
