Establishing a self-care practice
In this episode I talk about establishing a self-care practice and why it is important to have one. Life is always getting busy and it is easy to overlook prioritising things that nurture and support us as we scramble to keep up with the things to do list. Too often those self-care practices that are essential for keeping us performing at our best slip to the bottom of the list. Or worse, they fall off the list altogether as guilt at doing things for ourselves takes the driver’s seat in our brains. The more this happens the more run down we become. There are many benefits that come from building a sustainable self-care practice. From preventing burnout, increasing productivity to fighting off illness, there are lots of reasons to introduce more nurturing activities into your life. Listen in as I share tips on establishing a practice that works for you and your lifestyle.

Intrigued? Listen in to find out more! As well as discussing different oils to try out, Tracey also shares her thoughts on the essential oils we can use to help balance our chakras, and practical tips to using essential oils in our own homes.
