Remember that I introduced you to the Life Wheel a while back? It's a worksheet that helps you identify where you stand in all areas of life and where you might need some work. If not, you can download it here. Today I want to introduce you to a different kind of wheel: the Circle of Self-Care. Your circle of self-care is basically the foundation of your life.

SW SW SW SW is an acronym my first life coach taught me. It has to do with not taking things too seriously and the stories we tell ourselves. But let me start at the beginning.
