  1. Thanks Deitra for this great episode on Me Time. I just love this concept and something I’m very guilty of not providing for myself. Thanks for reminding us how important this is – even if it’s just for 10 minutes a day! Looking forward to your next show.

  2. Thanks Deitra on a great reminder to take time for ourselves…me time. Good analogy of putting on the oxygen mask on yourself before trying to help others. Honoring ourselves by implementing some quality time, even a small amount each day will help our overall health and happiness. Thanks again
