Taking Time From the Daily Grind with Clare Milliken


In today’s work-centric culture, our to-do list’s never end. There is always someone to call, an email to send, an errand to run. It is so exhausting. Yet taking time to relax and recharge can be a foreign concept to someone with a history of an eating disorder. For Chicago based journalist and Recovery Warrior contributor Clare Milliken, it took a lot of practice to get to a place where she realized her nose to the grindstone did not make her happier or more fulfilled.
Through adopting a self-care practice and recovery toolkit she was able to accomplish much more without feeling so beat down. Tune in to learn what steps Clare took to go from weekly freak-outs to embracing enjoyment, fun and spontaneity.
