Self-Discovery: 8 Ways to Find Your True Self

I got an email last week from a reader asking me “How do you find yourself?”. How do you start focusing on yourself when it’s something that you’ve never done before? How do you find your role in life and most importantly how do you find that starting point for figuring yourself out? Awesome questions and they definitely made me think! They also made me nostalgic about my own journey to self-discovery. It was equal parts the happiest and one of the more painful times in my life. When I first started this blog and this journey I felt –…

Teen Suicide Prevention: Have you had “The Talk”?

There are a lot of things I am passionate about – spirituality, self-love, self-care – and I am passionate about them because they all have helped me manage my mental illness. Spirituality helps remind me that I am part of this amazing Universe. Self-love reminds me that I am worthy. Self-care reminds me to take care of myself and ask for help when I’m in a bad place. Anxiety and depression have been part of my life since I was 11 or 12. My very first journal has entries about wishing I could just disappear. About wanting to be a…

Printable: Daily Self-Care Worksheet

Good morning you lovely people! Let’s have a little chat! I’ve been doing this blogging thing for seven years now, can you believe it? It started off as a deeply personal way to share my story. The good, the bad, the ugly of my journey toward loving myself. This work has become such a part of me, especially lately. It’s part of what keeps me sane and it’s part of my self-care. In the last year, I’ve started to re-discover my spirituality. An essential part of that is being of service to others. I’ve realized my ability to be a…

Tough Self-Love and Practicing Difficult Self-Care

If you’ve been hanging out here awhile then you know that my motto for self-care is “Ask yourself what you need.” And then do that thing. If you check out my Self-Care for Mental Wellness then you’ll see that my brand of self-care isn’t about manicures and vacations – but actionable steps that can improve your life. We’ve got to show a little tough love to ourselves on occasion. Sometimes we need to do something but we don’t want to do it. So we push it to the back-burner. There’s a lot of self-care that’s hard, that’s painful, and that stirs up…

Confession: I Am an Emotional Eater

“Emotional eating is the practice of consuming food — usually “comfort” or junk foods — in response to feelings instead of hunger.” My name is Dominee and I like to eat when I feel things I don’t want to feel. I eat more when I am stressed. I eat more when I am depressed. I eat more when I am anxious. I eat more when I am angry. I eat more when I am lacking inspiration. I eat more when I feel down and want to “reward” myself. I am an emotional eater and I am not ashamed of it.…

How Do You Define Your Self-Worth?

“You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep other people warm.” I feel like I need that tattooed on my forehead so I can see it every day when I look in the mirror. I fell in love with it the moment I read the words and they sunk into my brain. As an empath, it resonated. It has been such a struggle for me not to carry other people’s problems around with me, not to give everything inside of me to save someone else from pain, and not to break under other people’s expectations of who…

Free Evening Inventory Worksheet!

Do you ever have those days where you just can’t sleep? Your mind is on overdrive – looping over and over on something that you wish would just leave you alone so that you could get some much needed zzz’s? Yeah, me too. I’ve always found journaling to be one of the best forms of self-driven therapy. The act of creating space to get into my head, take an account of it, and write it down has always been incredibly soothing to me. It allows me to take all of that mental baggage and “move” it into a different container…

Yoga For Mental Health: My Top 5 Favorite Videos

I don’t do yoga to lose weight and I don’t do yoga to become more flexible. I do yoga because each time my feet hit the mat I am forced to confront myself. To focus on what’s going on in my head and how I’m feeling in that moment. I have to pay attention to how I’m breathing and I have to pay attention to how I’m holding and carrying my body and where the tension is. I have to pay attention. Yoga confronts me with truth. There are all kinds of yoga. All kinds. There are headstands and handstands and…

Hearth Magic: Spring Cleaning

It’s Spring (even though it didn’t feel like it the other day, I was freezing!)! And that means Spring Cleaning! You might start groaning at the thought of it, or you might be like me and be running through all of the exciting projects that are just waiting for you. Like washing the walls. Don’t look at me like I’m crazy! Washing the walls with a bit of scented water is one of my favorite “chores”. Because of my anxiety and depression, I haven’t always had a good experience with cleaning. I used to get so overwhelmed that I’d usually…

April Self-Care Check-In: Wisdom

Good morning my favorite people! 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…
