April Self-Care Check-In: Wisdom

Good morning my favorite people! Let’s have a self-care check-in! The last 30 days have been full of intense self-care for me. The difference between practicing that deep soul-level self-care and the basic self-care that just gets you through the day in survival mode is astounding. I’ve started to feel better on every level. My energy levels are rising, I’m full of creative energy, and my overall mood is getting better. It’s been a daily commitment to me. I’m not just creating time and space for myself (so important and the base of all self-care) but I’m filling that time with things that I need vs things that I want. (Okay, most days it’s a splash of both) Self-care is a multifaceted thing. Taking a bubble bath is self-care. Stepping away from work to spend time doing something fun is self-care. Taking in-depth account of your life and realizing where…

New April Self-Care Calendar!

Every month my Patreon’s get a cute printable calendar and this month’s April Self-Care Calendar my favorite! Each day has a little icon to encourage you to do something self-care related. It’s totally open to your interpretation! When you see each icon think of what comes to mind and how you can incorporate that into your life. You can get the full calendar by becoming a Patreon! I was really on the fence about joining Patreon. Putting out new content several times a month made me nervous. One of the things I have always worried about is my depression interrupting my creative flow. What happens if I get hit by a wave of depression – who will pick up the slack? But here’s the truth of it. My depression hasn’t sneaked up like that in years. There comes a point where I have to believe in myself, my coping skills,…

There are so many things to get done in a single day that taking time for yourself can get lost under the mountain of your daily tasks. The more we push our basic needs to the back of our priority list the more often we are to find ourselves sick, depressed, or suffering from emotional fatigue. By the time we start realizing the effect that neglecting our needs is having on our mental and physical health – we’re so exhausted that it’s hard to just bounce back. Here are four things we get wrong when it comes to our health. Not Incorporating A Balanced Lifestyle Into Daily Routines   Some people start on their journey to a healthy lifestyle, and think that they have to do everything 100% perfect.

Managing Anxiety About the Corona Virus

I had someone on Instagram message me. She’s in Italy, under quarantine, and she’s scared. She asked me if I could make something to help her and her younger family members handle the fear and anxiety about the corona virus or (Covid-19). And truly, I didn’t know what to say because I’m scared and anxious too. It’s like my Anxiety has a whole new host of storylines to obsess about and play in my head.
