In these challenging times, it has become more crucial than ever to acknowledge and understand the various stressors that impact our lives as human beings. Given the current heaviness of the world, how can we lean into taking care of ourselves again?

I recently came back from a three week excursion to Lisbon, Spain, and Morocco, and my biggest takeaways were appreciating the Blue Zone mentality of the eight realms of wellness.
