Earlier this summer, the WIL Vancouver Chapter had the pleasure of hosting Sharon Summerfield, Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Breathing Coach, and Founder of Nourished Executive, as one of the Speakers for a Self-Care summer series. During her event, Sharon shared with us her journey of transitioning to a career in nutrition and holistic wellness. Sharon shared practical strategies to help us develop a healthier relationship with stress, become more mindful in our lives, harmonize the various areas of our lives, and build a foundation of nutrition and wellness. Today, we are honoured to introduce Sharon Summerfield and to feature her Blog below on self-care perspectives and strategies. Thank you, Sharon for continuing to share with us your perspectives and strategies for investing in ourselves.

Sharon’s Blog on Self-Care
“The faster and busier things get, the more we need to build thinking time into our schedule. And, the noisier things get, the more we need to build quiet reflection spaces in which we can truly focus. Greg McKeown, Essentialism” – The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
