Redefining self-care:

A chat with Justine Sones

In this week’s episode, I am chatting with Justine Sones, a writer, stress management coach, and mom of two. Justine has made it her mission to help women business owners do work that matters, and build a life that supports them instead of stressing them out. Coming from a background in massage therapy, she understands the power of self-care, setting healthy boundaries, and creatively solving problems.

She shares her own journey with self-care and how it looks like for her now, as a mom and a businesswoman. We talk about self-care during the pandemic, which is more about leaning into the discomfort and embracing the growth of it. Truly taking care of self.

Justine’s bio: 

Justine Sones is a writer and stress management coach who loves drinking coffee, helping burnt-out humans set boundaries, and talking about things that hurt. During her career as a massage therapist, Justine’s practice was dedicated to exploring the roles that stress, pain, and relaxation play in healing the physical body. She came to realize that the support her clients needed required more than a massage, and made it her mission to help them. Justine now spends her time writing about feelings and coaching other over-functioning humans develop healthy boundaries and practice sustainable self-care as they navigate the messy intersections of partnering, parenting, -preneuring, and pandemicking.
