  1. Great episode Lauren. Very inspiring and thought provoking. So simple when you break it down and examine your mind set and then reframe your mind set.

  2. I loved the idea of learning to think flexibly to continue to take care of ourselves. So often we get caught up in the all or nothing approach, and berate ourselves when we don’t stick to it. Change of thinking to “what is going to work today” really hit home for me and choosing the middle ground (what CAN I do today) – sure this is the path to more acceptance and self love

    1. It’s so simple but also such a different way of thinking to what most of us do most of the time right Bev?! thanks for listening in. So glad you enjoyed it!
