Self-love practices

I really enjoyed listening to your episode on the self-love practices you use in your life to take care of yourselves and to cultivate worthiness. The more we use our voices to share what we’ve learned, the more we grow ourselves and the more we can help others too. I hope you both continue sharing your wisdom in this way.
