#19: Nadia Narain & Katia Narain Phillips – Self-Care, Daily Rituals & Treating Yourself with Kindness – Your Dream Life Podcast

This episode Kristina catches up with the incredibly inspiring duo, Nadia Narain and Katia Narain Philips – sisters, friends, co-authors and wellness gurus whose simple and achievable advice on self-care is taking the world by storm. As true wellness pioneers, they have both spent decades helping others to feel their best, but are the first to admit it took them a bit longer to learn to care for themselves.

Originating from slightly different disciplines when it comes to nourishing body and mind, these two wonderful women eventually discovered how complimentary both their worlds were when combined.

Nadia is one of the UK’s top yoga teachers, known for her range of bestselling DVDs and also has her own range of chemical-free candles and perfumes. And Katia has worked in wellness, food and massage for more than twenty years and also runs the innovative Nectar Café in London.

In their first best-selling book, Self-Care for the Real World, they share small, achievable steps they picked up over a lifetime’s journey towards self-care, and share how you can apply them to your life, wherever you are.

Through their journey, they have discovered that practicing simple daily rituals can help us to press the pause button on the pace of modern life, and in their most recent book, Rituals for Everyday, you’ll find a collection of some of their favourite rituals you can apply to your daily life.

In this amazing episode, you’ll also discover…

  • Simple tips for self-care and living a happier, healthier life
  • How to change the conversation you have with yourself for the positive, and start treating yourself with more kindness
  • That it’s okay to ask for support when you need it
  • The power of making small, positive and sustainable changes, rather than committing to huge unattainable ones
  • The importance of finding your tribe and surrounding yourself with people who believe in you
  • The benefits of scheduling time for self-care and time to pause and reflect in your days
  • That you can make time for self-care whenever it suits you – there is no right or wrong time, and so much more!
