Whether you have children, work with children or feel like your various projects are your children, you may have experienced the burnout that comes from pouring all your energy into others without filling your own cup.
Barbara Rodriguez is the author of The Organic Nanny's Guide to Raising Healthy Kids (The Organic Nanny/Amazon Books), and for over three decades, she has committed her life to helping children achieve a healthy start and ultimately enjoy a well-balanced life. She has served as a childcare specialist and consultant as well as nanny, governess, food preparer and household manager to a variety of high-profile families.
The daughter of political refugees, Rodriguez was inspired by her health-conscious Cuban grandmother, to help others, including within the Latino community, to create a holistic, nurturing home environment with nutritionally balanced meals and to advance the physical, emotional, intellectual and social development of children.
Throughout her career she has learned how nurturing the self can empower you to nurture others. A practitioner of yoga which follows a vegan diet, she believes that tuning in to what makes you feel you personal best is key to helping you make a positive impact.
