8 Self-Care Lessons Learned from Fairy Tales

I was originally outlining a plan for my newsletter this morning and I thought – “You know what would be cute? A fairy tale design.” And then when I started thinking about it, I was making all of the associations between different fairy tale themes and then I decided it would make a super cute blog post – and here we are! 8 Self-Care Lessons Learned from Fairy Tales You’ve Got To Kiss the Frogs: You’re not always going to get it right on the first try and that’s okay. Whether it’s in love, your career, nailing a hobby, or meeting a goal – you’re going to fail sometimes. I didn’t find my twue wuv until I was in my 30s. I’ve been blogging for a decade and only in the last few years have I really “made” it. It took me years to work on my anxiety and my…

Self Care: Unplug From Social Media

Hi, my name is Dominee, and I absolutely love social media and the internet but I also know how important it is to unplug. As someone who is super introverted, it’s the perfect way to make connections and not feel so alone in the world. That being said, it’s still good to unplug. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. I am guilty of checking Facebook and Instagram 80 billion times a day. I’m guilty of laying in bed and scrolling… scrolling…scrolling and suddenly it’s an hour past my bedtime. When it comes to social media, there is good and bad. This week, I’ve been focusing on stepping back just a little bit. I’m guilty of being glued to my phone. It’s not just social media for me, although that’s a big part of it. When I’m not on my computer I still have to…

My Self-Care Goals this Week

Day four of NaBloPoMo, which means that it’s my goal to write one blog post every day this month. To be perfectly honest, I’m not really feeling the whole writing thing today. However, I’m going to show up and write anyway because it feels good. It’s kinda like yoga. I love the way it makes me feel but I grumble about finding the motivation to do it. October was such a hard month for me. I had so many things going on. So many! I had to deal with fixing a $5,000 issue with my house. I was trying desperately to meet the deadline for the 2020 Planner and the Self-Love Workbook. I’d work myself to the point of exhaustion and then a little more for good measure. I was working 9 hours at my “regular” job and then coming home and working another 8 hours to get everything done…

Self-Care is Not One Size Fits All

Today we have an excellent guest post from Terri Barley, a member of the Soulsisterhood and a Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner. Enjoy! Have you ever been shopping and thought you found something you really like, then flip the tag to see what size it is only to find the “One Size Fits All” phrase? Your heart sinks and you keep looking elsewhere because you know it’ll never work for you. Well, self-help I’ve found is much like clothing.  It by no means is one size fits all and often discourages because we don’t get that instant “ta-da” epiphany for a solution. Once upon a time, I had a boss that instilled in me the necessity of knowing the why of doing something. His method infuriated me throughout my employment.  But now I apply this theory to every aspect of my life and it helps, especially me being the analytical…
