How to Cope With Dental Anxiety

I talked about this on social media, but I wanted to talk about it a little more.Let’s talk about one of the hidden symptoms of anxiety and depression… it makes you lose your teeth. Not directly, but it’s often a symptom. For me, I was pretty depressed through out my teens and early 20s so oral hygiene wasn’t at the top of my list. And anxiety. Anxiety meant that to make a dentist’s appointment, I had to talk on the phone (horrifying) to a stranger (even more horrifying) and make an appointment that would give me anxiety every day up…

April Self-Care Challenge!

Good morning, lovelies! I’ve been trying to step-up my Instagram game (I’m doing pretty good if I do say so myself!) so this morning I decided to create a little self-care challenge for April. I love one-word challenges because they’re often open to interpretation and you can apply them to your life in a way that’s good for you! I’d love for you to do this challenge on social media with pictures, thoughts, or experiences and tag me or use #AprilSelfCare! 1.GoalsMake a goal for this month or finish one you made last month. If you’ve got a Self-Love Planner,…

The Impossible Task: Tips To Do “The Thing”

In 2014, I started writing a blog post called “Doing Laundry With Anxiety” go figure that I never finished it. It was about how horribly difficult it was for me to do my laundry because my anxiety made it feel like an insurmountable task. It took so much force of will to make myself do it and it was draining. You could often judge my anxiety level based on the number of clothes that were unwashed. I had a few impossible tasks, laundry, checking the mail, and doing dishes. Checking the mail was especially hard. I lived in an apartment…

Saying No: An Act of Self-Love

One of the foundations of self-love: Boundaries. Your ability to say “no” to people is often an indicator of how well you’re loving yourself. If you are constantly saying yes to people and situations that you want to say “no” to you end up being exhausted, burnt out, and with little time for yourself and for self-care. When I first created my Self-Love Planner (years ago!) one of the things I noticed right away was how much time I spent doing things that I didn’t want to do. At that time of my life, I was still an introvert in…

Why We Can’t Let Go of Bad Relationships

Last week, one of our lovely members of our Self-Care/Self-Love/Mental Health Group – The SoulSisterhood, made a post that made me feel some things and I wanted to write about those feelings. She’s in a great relationship, she’s happy, she’s treated well, yet she can’t stop thinking about her ex-boyfriend who she had a very up and down and somewhat toxic relationship with and she thinks he might be her soulmate, which causes her to have doubts about her current relationship. Giiiiiirl. Who hasn’t been there? If you haven’t, count yourself lucky. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in…

March Self-Care Planning!

We’re on the cusp of a new month so it’s time to pull out your Self-Love Workbook (or your March Self-Care pages!) and start planning! I promised myself at the beginning of this year that I was going to hardcore focus on my spirituality. I’ve felt so spiritually depleted for a long time and I want to be filled up with that magic again. I cleaned and re-arranged my altar. I’ve started keeping track of the moon phases. I even started a Facebook group so that I’d have extra accountability. February was a gigantic failure. Don’t ever let anyone tell…

How to Deal With the Death of a Loved One

Have you been a reader for a while? Then you might know that I just came upon the one-year anniversary of my mother’s death. It never really gets easier. I think I’ve learned that the first year is the hardest. It’s getting through all of those initial hurdles. The first birthday, mother’s day, holiday season… that punched-in-the-gut feeling hits you on those days. I think the second time around might be easier. Just a bit. Losing someone you love is painful. Often it’s so painful that you can feel it physically. No one ever really tells you about that –…

Anxiety & Self Care

Morning you beautiful people! Today I present to you a guest post by the talented Josephine from Crazy Whole Life. Five years ago I would have laughed at the idea that I would be diagnosed with anxiety. A huge part of my identity was that I was someone who didn’t stress. I was the peacemaker in our family, the responsible oldest child, and the calm eye of every hurricane. So when I started having anxiety symptoms I assumed I was having a heart attack (one that went on for days, weeks, and then months). I went so far as to…

Self-Care Memes for February 2019

For the longest time, I’ve been really intimidated by Instagram. There’s just so much prettiness! At the same time, I’ve also been really frustrated with my Facebook Page. Facebook algorithms make it so hard for posts to be seen unless you pay money to “boost” them. I have over 20,000 fans on my Facebook page and I’m lucky if I get 50 likes on a post. It’s so discouraging! I decided to try my hand at Instagram and it has paid off big time. In just a few months I went from 5,000 followers to almost 20,000, insert cheering! I’ve…

Intrusive Thoughts and Obsessive Thought Loops

What’s an intrusive thought? An intrusive thought is an unwelcome involuntary thought, image, or unpleasant idea that may become an obsession, is upsetting or distressing, and can feel difficult to manage or eliminate.* We all have intrusive thoughts, although it’s something we don’t talk about because of embarrassment, shame, and well, guilt. They range from things like wanting to break everything when you’re walking by the dishes at Target, thinking you have a deadly disease because your stomach hurts, or replaying an event in your head over and over again. There are darker intrusive thoughts too. Thoughts like hurting the people you care…

Self-Care Battery: Recharge Yours!

In the Self-Love Workbook, I talk a lot about self-care and recharging. But how do you know what and how to recharge? Let’s have a little chat about your self-care battery. Have you ever heard of the “Spoon Theory“? It’s a way to describe how people with chronic illness have a limited amount of energy. Every day they are allotted a certain number of “spoons”. Every activity costs a certain number of spoons. Getting out of bed may be two spoons, cooking breakfast is one, showering is two, doing chores is three, while going to work is four, and going out…

The Law of Attraction

Chances are that you’ve heard a lot about “the law of attraction”. I know I have, especially in many of the online circles I’m in.

Well, let’s take a moment to run through the basics! What Is the Law of Attraction? Let’s start out with a brief summary. The law of attraction is a belief that the universe provides you with whatever your thoughts are focused on. Accordingly, if…
