    I loved this episode on self-care! Lauren’s point on being mindful about health in terms of vitamins and minerals really hit home. Although I eat a pretty balanced diet, I want to make sure that I’m consuming all of the nutrients I’m lacking. I’ve definitely been looking more into natural dietary supplements that come from food sources – just have to figure out which one fits my specific needs. Also, I think I might need to follow Deun’s lead and take a relaxing bath this weekend lol
