Some friendships are written in the stars! When we met in 2018, we had both just had a personal wake-up call about how important self-love is. Aliya had experienced burnout in the corporate world, and Talya had experienced severe health problems while trying to have it all as a busy working mum.
We could also see the people around us, including our friends and family members, who were running themselves into the ground in different ways and not making time for self-care.
By combining our forces and individual talents as a holistic wellness coach for busy people (Aliya) and a former Editor in Chief in the lifestyle, wellness and parenting space (Talya) we knew we had the power to do something about this growing problem…
We were motivated to provide a welcoming space for people experiencing today’s overwhelm, and were passionate in helping them find solutions and to slow down, take a step back and focus on themselves. And so the seeds of Self Love Today was sown, and our tree began to grow at the very first Self Love Sunday event which has now blossomed into a regular event series.
The need for people to learn tools and techniques to help them find balance in today’s modern-day rat race where we are all striving to do more, be more and achieve more was very clear.
Today we have taken our knowledge and wisdom into the corporate field, delivering practical corporate wellness workshops for employees, and working with the likes of multinationals such as Zara and IMG. We have also transformed the health and wellbeing of entrepreneurs and freelancers so that they can also bring the best version of themselves to their project, along with feeling a sense of purpose, belonging and connectedness to thrive. This is a fast expanding area for us and we continue to focus on this arm of Self Love Today.
In the coming year, look out for other exciting developments including the launch of a dedicated self-love podcast!
Above all, take time to look after you. You deserve it!
