Moms, Here’s What Your Lack of Self-Care is Really Doing to Your Family

If you are a wife and a mother, chances are you regularly play on #teamtoomuch. You have 101 things to do and it never seems like there are enough hours in the day to get it all done.

The Amazing Thing That Happens When You Stop Caring if People Like You

I’ve never been much of a people-pleaser. From an early age, I pretty much did my own thing. “Hate it or love it” has always been this Brooklyn girl’s motto. I think a lifetime of trying to please everyone you care about is exhausting. I’ve never been interested. But in recent years, I have realized that something in me shifted a bit.
