welcome to the simple self care podcast
a weekly nudge to take good care - new episodes every sunday
There is so much going on, and there is too much going on. And it is so easy to get overwhelmed with all of life's demands and distractions. But feeling overwhelmed doesn't have to be a normal way of life.
This week's episode offers some simple ways to give your overwhelm a hug and let go of what isn't needed.
To counter all of holiday shopping hullabaloo, I created the Ultimate Un-Gift Guide, a list of more meaningful ways to spend your money and time this holiday season.
Instead of giving in to the pressures of overspending and giving inauthentic gifts that your loved ones may or may not like, why not give something more valuable: your time, your presence, and meaningful experiences.
“How the seasons change taught me that nothing ever lasts forever. That's both a reassuring thing, but also a moment to really realize that you have to live in the present. Seasons invite a way to look at how much we’ve grown.”
The reason for the season this coming week is our quiet but mighty hero, Gratitude. Noticing what we are grateful for can bring light and positivity to any given moment. It can transform the hardest of times into times of sweet growth, and it enhance our most joyous moments.
In this episode, Megan Gilger from The Fresh Exchange shares how her gratitude practice helps her live a more seasonal, intentional, and fulfilled life.
Do you know what you sound like? Not your talking or singing voice, but your wise, true, authentic voice. The one that guides you and looks out for your best interest.
In this week's episode, we talk about how to recognize your inner wisdom, including a five step process on how to get that voice to speak up.
Time. It seems to be endless, yet it's become more precious than gold. It can stand still, and it can zoom by. It can age, and it can heal. It's a steady constant that governs days, months, years, and seasons like, well, clockwork.
So why does it take so many forms? Why does it seem like a fickle trickster, messing with our concept of what time actually is? What if the problem is actually us and our brilliant human minds?
Today on the podcast, in honor of daylight savings time, this episode talks about how we can use time for our benefit when it comes to taking the time needed for our self care practices.
This week's episode is all about embracing the transition from Fall into Winter. Take a listen to hear my favorite things to consider during this time of year and suggested rituals to do as part of your Autumn self care practice.
Jessica Williams is most commonly known for her work running the social media for The Minimalists and co-hosting The Mind Palace Podcast. But Jess is also insightful and wise on the matters of going through a difficult healing journey.
In this episode, I get to have an intimate chat with Jess on not just working through her autoimmune disease, but we talk abou trusting your intuition, having authority over your own body, feeling abundant and content instead of feeling deprived and without, the healing power of minimalism, bringing small doses of luxury into our everyday life, creating an environment to be able to calm yourself down.
In this episode of the Simple Self Care podcast, we talk about one of our biggest self care enemies: negative self talk.
Take a listen on why it can sabotage our best self care efforts and how we can change the script.
Welcome to the very first official episode of The Simple Self Care Podcast. In this episode, we all get on the same 'self care' page by discussing this whole 'self care' thing. What is it, really? Why should we care? How do we do it?
:: Spoiler Alert :: It's simpler than you think, and it will change your life.
Before we embark on this exciting journey through the airwaves together, I figured it important to provide you a preparatory episode, a prepisode if you will, of The Simple Self Care Podcast, a weekly nudge to take good care.
Not only does this prepisode tell you what this podcast is about, how it came to be, and what you can expect in future episodes, it takes you on a little trip with me to the lakes of Minnesota.
Special appearances by the Solar Eclipse, the Loons of Minnesota, and a windy lake.
