The importance of changing your mindset in practicing self-care.

As Gail shares her journey with us, she explains the important first steps of beginning a self-care routine. All too often, we fail to make ourselves a priority in our busy lives. Gail shares why this must be a priority for everyone and how it can help to heal your life. Changing your mindset is the most important part of self-care and Gail shares how this shift impacted her own journey. After finding her mission, Gail has been able to help other women heal and maintain self-care in their lives.

How anyone can begin the healing process.

As Gail discusses her journey with Rosetta, she shares insight into some valuable first steps of healing. The simplicity of taking time for “self” is perhaps the most important aspect of self-care, according to Gail. Gail delves into her daily routine to help other women understand how valuable it is to make yourself a priority and how this can encourage healing. When Gail faced some major health crises, she realized that she had overlooked self-care in her life for many years. Because of this, she is passionately sharing these valuable lessons with women everywhere in an effort to help them begin the healing process.
