03: What Self-Care Really Means in 2021

“Self-care” is such a buzzword. But how many of us truly know what it means? Here’s a hint – it’s so much more than just naps and bubble baths.


Think meditation is hard? Do me a favor, take a slow deep breath in and now breathe out. Congratulations, you just meditated. Hi, I’m Krystal Jakosky, and this is Breathe In, Breathe Out: a Weekly Mindfulness and Meditation podcast for anyone ready to own their own shit and find a little peace while doing it.


I am so glad that you have chosen to come back to spend a little bit of time with me again here on Breathe In, Breathe Out. I’m Krystal Jakosky.
