Today I was thrilled to chat with guest Elizabeth Hughes-Callison. I wanted to air her episode this week because it fit nicely to piggyback off last week's episode about mastering the art of self-love!
Listen in as Elizabeth and I chat about:
- The need for Self-care.
- Why Self-care is important for your health
- How to incorporate 5-10 minutes of self-care into your daily routine
- How Meditation can be beneficial
- How Important Your Night-time Routine is in self-care

I am Elizabeth Hughes-Callison, I live deep in the corn and soybean fields of Central Illinois, Decatur to be exact, right next to cornfields. I spent 32 years in corporate America working out of a cubicle, and I watched mothers struggle to keep a balance between working and family. In 2012 I decided it was time for me to come home and I started EHC Business Services from my home where I helped people start a small business, doing the bookkeeping, payroll, and all the boring stuff.
I have worked with Single Mothers below the poverty line who are trying to do it all. I know how important parenting is, along with the struggle. I have always had a passion for relationship building, parenting and seeing children given the opportunities to become the adults they were meant to become. I knew when Parenting Peacefully (now It's Mother's Turn) came up for sale it was for me.
When I say mothers, it can mean anyone, men, and women. I never wanted to be a stay at home mother, but most of my friends did. I know my struggles with being able to get my work done and get my child to the doctor’s office, Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts, Church Choir, and so forth. I had support from my husband, and it took me many years to realize how unusual that was.
It was around 1995 that my life changed, I saw how it affected my children. I struggled then to raise happy, peaceful children and I continue today to try to have a happy, peaceful life by taking care of myself.
I have been married to my husband and partner in crime Randy for 35+ years, and we have four children: our oldest John and his beautiful wife Alysia and our youngest Elizabeth (Leigh). They have finally left our house for good, and are successful adults, which was the goal.
