At MYXfitness, we provide smarter, simpler ways to healthier, happier lives for every body. That means helping people prioritize the last thing on their list: themselves. So, we got together for this quick Mat Chat Monday conversation to talk about how the heck to make all-important self care happen when everything — and everyone — else feels like a priority.

Fellow MYX coaches and former dance partners, Lauren Sambataro (@lauren_sambataro) and Justin Flexen (@justinflexen), have been friends for years. While they’re on the same page about the importance of self care, their busy lives means they haven’t had a chance to trade self care tips and tricks for a while. Get in on their conversation as they share some self care secrets you might find a bit surprising, but definitely helpful.
