The best preventative medical advice is to look after your health before you get sick, but what if you’re too busy reacting to the world’s expectations of you or looking after other people’s needs?
Dr Lauren Tober says we all need radical self care.
“We spend a lot of time in our heads and a lot of time focussing on things outside of ourself and so if we can do practices to bring ourselves back into our body and get really well acquainted with what’s going on inside our body, we start to really pick up on those early warning signs.”
We can all learn to take care of ourselves better and be creative about it.
“It’s not that there’s one prescription for how to do self care…. It’s about checking in with what you need in each moment.”
In this episode, it’s time for Radical Self Care with Dr Lauren Tober. Also, meet the founders of Orange Sky Laundry, the world’s first free mobile laundry and shower service for the homeless.
