  1. What a great interview! I love seeing this movement head to the west. For so long, giving to others and overextending ourselves was looked at as the “right” things to do. Meanwhile, we are getting sick, stressed, overworked, exhausted…the list goes on. But, by taking responsibility for ourselves and our own happiness and tune in to what it is we need, when we do those things for ourselves our health and happiness improves. And we are able to be more present, open, grounded and reliable for those we choose to spend our lives around. I’m going to check out your 28-day challenge on your website. Thanks for sharing, and I’m about to retweet! Best, Stacy @TheZenGirl
