On what millennial women should do in order to make sure that they are making healing a priority

“In order to make healing a priority, you’re going to have to DO the work. Like, actually do it! And there’s no faking a healing journey, because it is not all rainbows and roses. If you really want to come out a better version of yourself (because that’s how you can use pain positively) then there’s no quick fix and there’s no way to fake it.”

On how to implement self-care practices when we may feel hopeless and out of touch:

“First, get connected to a good support system of people — they can be your light when all you see is darkness. Second, CRY! Crying is a healthy action that we often feel much shame with. But tears are healing waters. If anybody has seen the recent movie the shack, there was a quote that I love. “sometimes we have to Let the healing waters flow. Finally, be mindful of how you take care of your body. What you eat, exercise, drinking water, getting enough sleep- all of this impacts not only your physical well-being but your emotional well-being.”
