Aug 11, 2015 | Sonoma Valley Hospital News | 0 comments


“Self-Love” is the topic of the September GirlTalk event, which will be led by SVH CEO Kelly Mather. She will discuss why self-love is the first of the five keys to wellness, and inspire you to become aware of how negative thinking, judgment and words are a barrier to good health. You will practice how to flip your thoughts to have a more positive outlook. The discussion also will include a Self-Love Assessment and an overview of the other four keys to wellness.

“It’s important to understand that many obstacles to good health stem from a low level of self-love,” Mather said. “When we can identify our insecurities and needy behaviors, and learn how to consistently practice secure behaviors, we positively affect our health and wellness.”
