My 2020 Growth Story
Thank you for allowing me to take the stage last night along with so many amazing women. It was an absolute honor.
I was overwhelmed with emotions last night as Stacy Cassio announced that my story received the most votes for Pink Mentor Network's 2020 Growth Stories, which also meant that the voters really resonated with my story.
Honestly, I was super nervous and probably rushed so I wouldn't be choked up and cry. Many of you asked for what I shared afterwards since it was pretty difficult to take notes - if you don't know some of the Ayurvedic terms, it probably didn't help that I talked so fast - which is why I'm writing this blog for you to reference in the upcoming months. And yes, you can absolutely share with whomever needs to hear my story.
I truly hope what I'm sharing will help you and anyone you know end 2020 with some resilience, joy, patience, and kindness to yourself.

Summer Self-Care Tips
It's the middle of summer, and there's still plenty of time for self care this season. Whether you're more or less busy this season, it's super important to take care of yourself whenever you can. Self care doesn't have to be time-consuming, complicated, overwhelming, or expensive.
Self care is anything you do to take care of yourself so you can stay physically, mentally, and emotionally well - fueling your mind, body, and spirit. When you are healthy and well, you are able to help take care of others, do accomplish what you need to do in a day, and perform well at your job.
Here are some ideas on how to practice self-care, so you can find what works best for your needs and lifestyle.

Featured Expert - Multi-faceted Unicorn and Coach on Self-Love
It's almost Valentine's Day❣ Whether you have a bae/hunny or not in your life, every single woman deserves self-love and self-care.
Love doesn't always have to come from other people. In fact, it is so important to love yourself. As women, we wear so many hats in this modern day, and sometimes we forget about our own needs because we are so busy taking care of other people - at work, at home, anywhere really.
This interview of Chrystal Rose is about self-love that impacts the mind, body, and spirit. I'm going to be completely honest - this is something that I am 100% still struggling with. I've been bullied and shamed all of my life, a lot of times by the people whom I thought loved me and was closest to me, so this topic is absolutely important to me. Sometimes people don't realize that words really hurt, and they truly don't realize how those words can impact others' self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love.
Chrystal owns Rebellia, the Rebel Babe Cave podcast, and Mental Message. She is also a nutritional coach and is currently working on obtaining a certification in life coaching that focuses on body image and disordered eating from a holistic approach. Chrystal is extremely passionate at what she does and wants to make an impact on women's lives - centering around changing the mindset, achieving sustainability (instead of trying yo-yo diets), and working towards balance.
