I remember back in the 1990s, when I was in graduate school studying to become a psychotherapist, it seemed like every professor ended up talking about “self-care.” I would think, “I hear that on Oprah. How could something so simple and trendy be such a big deal?”
Now, 15 years later, I find myself talking about self-care with all of my clients. It’s the cornerstone of a good life.
Self-care takes time and attention. It can be boring. It’s not sexy or dramatic. But ultimately it is a super powerful tool for transformation.
