In this special solo episode, host Heather Ash talks about essential self-care, why we need self-care, and how to get the self-care we need, so that we can thrive. She also talks about what it’s like to be an introvert and a mom, and balancing needs for connection and quiet while being a busy mama. Finally she shares two great books for getting started with silent meditation.

Catia’s three favorite forms of self-care
“That’s my dream for everybody, that they have their heart full.”
“Once you’ve walked through the fire, nobody can take that away from you.”
“It’s okay to feel all the feelings.”
“We complete ourselves, and if we’re not the one for ourselves , then we can never be the one for anybody else.”
“What kind of love do you believe you deserve?”
(All of the previous quotes are those of Catia Holm.)
