When you hear the words “self-care,” what comes to mind? A bubble bath or a new skincare treatment? Maybe a spa day or an afternoon with a good book? All of those can be great for your self-care, but sometimes we need more than a face mask or a nap to nourish our minds and keep us from feeling depleted.
If you want to try some self-care that’ll have long-lasting effects on your wellbeing (that you might have never considered), take a look at our ideas below.
Season 2 of our podcast is launching next month!
In anticipation of the new season, we thought we’d share some inspirational highlights from Season 1 that you may have missed … or may just want to listen to again. 🙂
Hope you enjoy!
When was the last time you stressed about money? Chances are, you answered “today” or even “just a few minutes ago.”
While none of us want to be worrying about our finances all the time, in this day and age it’s kind of hard not to. Thanks (or no thanks) to inflation, everything is more expensive, from the coffee we drink to the sheets we curl up in at night.
If you’re feeling the financial pinch right now, you’re not alone.
So far this year, there’s no shortage of things to be stressed about (we could list them out, but really, who wants to read that?!). And while we wish we could wave a magic wand and get rid of everything that’s stressing us out, it’s just not possible (that letter from Hogwarts never did come …).
But what we can do is work on managing our stress and feeling calm, even when life gets chaotic. The best way we’ve found?
Most of us have a love-hate relationship with Valentine’s Day. There’s a nice sentiment behind the holiday, but all the expensive flowers, five-course meals, and sappy cards take a lot of the fun out of it.
If you wish Valentine’s Day would just go away, we get it. But what if you approached the holiday a little differently this year?
Today I want to talk about the most important relationship you’ll ever have – your relationship with yourself. Think about it – romantic partners may come and go, friends can drop out of your life, but you are there all the time, so why not make it the best relationship possible?
The whole idea of a relationship with yourself may sound silly, but really it’s just a way to be mindful of how you talk to yourself and treat yourself day today.
What’s one thing you could do in 2022 that would make this year stand out from the rest and make you feel like you took a giant leap in your life?
Write a book? Change your diet and lifestyle for good? Start a podcast? Travel to Peru? Reach a money goal? Get serious about love and connecting with a partner? Run a marathon?
How much do you prioritize and make time for these things that really matter to you? (Be honest!)
How are your goals for 2022 coming along?
If you answered “haven’t started” or “ehm, next question” that’s totally OK. We’re not here to judge!
What we do want to talk about is one of the biggest things that might be keeping you from reaching your goals this year … negative self-talk. In the past month, have you thought:
I’m not good enough.
I’m not experienced enough.
Has someone ever recommended journaling (maybe it was us!) and you thought, nope, not for me! I don’t have time for that! Or That will never work!
We get it.
If you haven’t journaled before (or it’s been a while), it may seem like just another item on your to-do list that won’t get done.
But hear us out. If you do one thing this year to make your life better, we really think you should try journaling.
