September is self-care awareness month, and in this episode I talk about the importance of bringing more self-care into your lives, especially now more than ever. We are in the midst of a long-term struggle with all that 2020 has brought with it - Covid, remote work/distanced learning, extreme weather, BLM, social/civil unrest, political divide - it is a lot! And for many of us, especially women and moms, it is hard to know how to take care of ourselves when we are in the midst of caring for so many people around us. But if we are not taking care of ourselves, we are not role modeling a boundary in which we value ourselves, and we end up being depleted, which is of no help to anyone. And yet for many - especially women and moms - we feel selfish or guilty when asking for/needing self-care, and so this episode talks about the ways in which we can release any old stories of “mom as martyr” or feeling like we need to put everyone ahead of ourselves. No is the time to create new, more mindful and compassionate patterns.
