Self care is important but it takes time. It's not a race, it's not a sprint, it's a marathon. You have to train your mind and body to be sustainable.  In this crazy world, it is paramount to have a purpose and direction. How to do that? By living an intentional life and taking care of ourselves. 

The death of her brother and best friend Roy pulled Annie Singh Quern into writing her first book, Journey into Simple Living: Self-Care Practices for Busy Women. She dedicates the book to all women who are courageous enough to embark on their  own journey. A lot of women balance careers and home life, wearing different hats, which makes self care extremely important.

"Success is not acquiring the things you think you need to live. Success is learning that you don't need the things right to live."
