Stress related problems are the result of woman that do not properly take quality time for themselves, to just relax and have loads of fun or just taking time to unwind just for a few minutes each day.

” What women need is to learn how to nurture themselves. We need to shower as much loving kindness on ourselves as we habitually shower on loved ones, and even not- so – loved ones. We need to be loved for our fully formed selves, not for our dependent, appeasing selves. And the only way we can have fully formed selves is by granting ourselves the same tenderness and fierce protectiveness we’d otherwise reserve for a beloved child.” ~ Alice D.Domar, PhD “Self – Nurture”.

This article definitely gets to the heart of how women have been programmed to care for everyone else except them selves. I once was such a caretaker that it is a wonder I am still alive. I want so much to get a copy of this article to gift to myself and share with others..Although I have come a long way of caring for myself to practice the recommendations listed in this message would enhance my life expansively. THANK YOU.
