2020 Episode 1: The Beauty of Self-Care - It Benefits Everyone

Posted in Business Wellness In Hamilton

Business Wellness in Hamilton, Season 4, Episode 1


Host Linda Marshall invites her guests to discuss the value of self-care and how it benefits everyone on Episode 1, Season 4 of Business Wellness in Hamilton

Self-care is about preserving your physical, emotional, and mental health; it is not a selfish act. Taking care of ourselves should be our No. 1 priority, but often it is not. Creating a healthy body will develop a sharp mind and help manage our stressful lives. Our body and brain positively respond when we take time each day to do something for ourselves first, so moving self-care to the top of the list is essential.  When we make time for ourselves, we give ourselves permission to refresh and re-energize.

Join my special guests Tyler Ouwendyk, Owner, Momentum Fitness and Mia Spadafora, Entrepreneur and McMaster University Athlete, and me to discuss the benefits of self-care for the premiere show on Friday, September 18, at 8:00 pm.
