Manage your fear with self-care rituals

Is there a certain time of day that you feel anxiety and fear creeping in? For me, it’s the beginning of the day, as soon as I wake up. Thankfully I don’t always wake-up feeling that way, but if there’s something heavy on my mind, or a massive unknown I’m grappling with, it presents itselfContinue reading “Manage your fear with self-care rituals”

Many people find change difficult, perhaps most people. But I would venture to say I am not one of those people. I’ve gone through a lot of fairly drastic change in my life, and for the most part I have welcomed it and embraced it. When I feel compelled to move in a new directionContinue reading “When change is hard”

If you don’t listen to your body, it will demand to be heard

I’m a hypocrite. That’s right, I preach from the mountaintops the importance of self-care and that a hugely important part of it is making time to receive bodywork. Yet how often do I receive massages? Rarely my friend, very rarely.   It’s not because I don’t believe what I’m saying.
