If you’ve been following along with Season One of this podcast, or even if you just saw the name “Fearless Self-Love Podcast,” it’s pretty clear that we focus on topics of self-love and self-care. But it’s important to acknowledge that we’re all at different points in our self-love journeys, and sometimes it can be difficult to figure out where to start. I’m excited for you to join me in my conversation with Cate Stillman, Yoga Health Coach, as we wrap up Season One by discussing what comes first - the habits or the self-love - and how to move forward no matter where we are in our journey.
