The "Becoming" author noted that there's a need for women to "un-train" one another when it comes to putting their health and wellness after everyone's needs. She gave fans a glimpse into her life as she got personal about her own experience when her kids were babies.

She recalled:

“A lot of mothers will understand this because I found myself looking around after I had my kids, and I didn’t have time for me, but my husband was at the gym every day. And I was like, well, how are you going to the gym? He was like, ‘I make time for the gym.’ I was like, what?”

Michelle concluded her speech, mentioning that the world women live in a world so devalued, and that has caused them to train themselves to think they don't deserve to take care of themselves.

She urged women to make their health a priority.
