Making Self-Care More...

How to Be a Better Person Podcast

How to Be a Better Person is a daily podcast hosted by author, Kate Hanley. She is joined by Macala Lacy, a yoga teacher/therapist and founder of The Well Healing in Los Angeles, who shares how self-care changes everything... AND how it's become such a popular term that it's starting to smell a little off to her. She also shares how to make self-care more than buzzword, so that we can all become a resource for ourselves and others.
