You are currently viewing S1:1 Creating a Wellness Oasis with MK Sagaria-Barritt

Now more than ever, working moms need a safe, inclusive space that we can momentarily step away from the heaviness of the world and regroup. In this Episode, I speak with wife, mom, and one of my all time favourite people, MK Sagaria-Barrit on how to create that space within your family and community. 

MK shares her thoughts such as, “Small doses matter more than big attempts at being well”, as well as the challenges of raising a daughter, growing up as a woman in a male-dominated world. Finally, she shares some insights into her wellness journey saying, “I really came to see wellness as centred in me.”

In this episode, MK and I talk about getting your spouse and children on board with your wellness. The book I mention is Jessica Lahey’s The Gift of Failure.
