What Kristin prioritizes to help her maintain her shine:
Honestly, I prioritize lots of rest to maintain my shine. I absolutely love to curl up in bed to reset my mind, body, and spirit. Rest is such a luxurious form of self-care. And, the most slept on form of self-care. No pun intended.
Kristin's advice to women pursuing the lives of their dreams:
My advice to all women would be to not let age or life stage suppress the urge to live out your life's true desires. The key to life is to stay prepared, the universe has already planned out your manifestations. However, you must position yourself to be ready to receive. Always.
