When we met in 2018, we had both had a wake-up call about how important self-love is. Aliya had experienced burnout in the corporate world, and Talya had experienced severe health problems trying to have it all as a busy working mum.
We had both had the wake-up call and could see people all around us who were running their selves into the ground in different ways, not making time for self-love or self-care.
We wanted to provide a welcoming space for people experiencing today’s overwhelm to slow down, take a step back and focus on themselves. And so the seed of Self Love Today was sowed, which was initially planted as the very first Self Love Sunday event which has 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 overwhelm where we are all striving to do more, be more, achieve more was very clear.
We began taking our knowledge and wisdom into the corporate field, delivering practical corporate wellness workshops working with the likes of Zara and IMG, and we continue to grow this arm of Self Love Today, alongside our community events.
In the coming year, look out for other exciting developments including the launch of a dedicated self-love podcast and range of merchandise.
