How do you take care of yourself? Many people claim that they do self-care but is it even the right way? When we feel bad or angry, we tend to process it by what is called “fake self-care,” – eating a box of chocolates or shifting to foods that we believe will “de-stress” us is not entirely self-care but instead it is self-sabotaging.
In this episode, Dr. Kyrin talks to Dr. Duffy Spencer about how we, mostly women, process emotions, what should be the right way to and self-care is not all about being selfish.
