Episode 66: Shake Self-Hate
Tip #5 - to shake you out of that self hate funk - and get to the self love Ban the self hate talk - no more. Just say NO when you mind starts racing and thinking about how horrible you are, how could you do this, just stop yourself. Cut the booze and pot; to clear your head and hear your heart, if you are self medicating because you can't face whatever it is, and you’re in pain, you are dulling the pain for sure, but you’re also dulling everything else. Splash water on your face - or if you can jump in the pool. Let that cold water shock the mean girl right out of you. Even if you’re not a big fan of the water or pools or rivers or whatever, this is going to change your tone real quickly enough to get you away from beating yourself up and into to soothing. Cut up a bunch of paper hearts - now you can write little love messages on them, or things you want to forgive yourself for, or you could even write down some of the horrible things you say to yourself, and then burn them. That’s right, here at self care is sexy I am give you permission to burn your hearts out. Because sometimes you have to do these weird little things to shake it up. And it’s really carthitc. Cook yourself something to eat - making yourself food is an act of self care. And it’s something you need to do anyway, but maybe put the effort into it like it was a date or something, you know bust out the wine glasses, even if your drinking water, and set the table, instead of eating over the sink or at the couch watching tv, do it up right, find a new recipe and have a three course spread; salad or soup the main deal and a desert. Do this. Do this for you.

Episode 61: Distractions
How we distract ourselves You are always offering to help someone with their problems You offer resources you don’t have You over commit You anticipate others needs even before they ask for them You rarely say “no”. It is hard for you to tell where you end and your partner begins You feel proud when you help others and crave that feeling. You rarely have any time to yourself. Or alone time. - because you find it uncomfortable Your children have the best of everything, while you shop at thrift stores You feel like people expect a lot from you! Why we distract ourselves We have poor self image We are afraid to be judged There is nothing more uncomfortable than being alone We feel unworthy We don’t know how to take care of ourselves We don’t want to appear selfish or stuck up We are anxious to please We fear any confrontation We have boundary issues We have deep compassion Ways we can change Spend time alone. No distractions. Do the hard personal work Recognize the impulse to help others.

Episode 58: How is Self Care Sexy?
Five reasons why self care is sexy; #1 it brings out confidence: #2 Self care is sexy because it teaches you relationship building skills #3 It gives you permission: #4 it cures codependency: #5 It makes you focus on you: ?You know what is sexy? Someone who knows themself. Let the vision and the voice inside be louder than the critics or haters and outside opinions. When you take care of you, when you make you a priority you are building yourself up and there is nothing sexier than someone who knows their worth. So I want to send you one last word of encouragement; you go out there this week and you stand up for what you want to do and give yourself what you need, even if it’s not what others want. You are worth it. And it becomes easier and easier the more you practice. I want you to do it, before you turn off this show, make a scheduled appointment for self-care. Take at least ½ hour this week and read a book, take a nap, journal, make a treat for yourself, take a long bath, turn off your phone and do it just for you, no matter what the back last may be. Because that is sexy as Duck

Episode 55: Boundary Setting for Self Care
“Pay attention when people react with anger and hostility to your boundaries You have found the edge where their respect for you ends”. - Sweatpants and Coffee dot com “At first you will probably feel selfish guilty or embarrassed when you set a boundary. Do it anyway and tell yourself you have a right to self-care. Setting boundaries takes practice and determination. Don’t let anxiety or low self esteem prevent you from taking care of yourself.” - Terri Cole Tips for boundary setting: Identify your boundaries. Take the time to get to know what you will and will not accept. Don't apologize or over explain. You don’t owe them shit. Watch for line crossers. Meet the resistance. Practice practice, practice. Start small at first. Inlist people you trust. Let go of guilt. Because I said so! Saying NO means saying yes! Be free to say YES to the things that excite you

Episode 50: Year in Review
First of all the number one way our listeners get self care is Sleep. We’ve had episode after episode talking with peeps about how sleep is the first thing to go when the shit hits the fan, and it’s the fastest way to get self care when you’re needing it bad. After sleep, socializing was a top one on the list. Which I find a little different, when I need self care I like to be by myself, you know unplug, but the majority of people say that hanging out or going out with friends to connect is a form of self care. And I dig it. I mean there is a time for all of that. I learned that the biggest hindrance to getting self care is remembering to do it. It just seems to fall off the radar until some kind of major bad thing happens and then we shift our minds to taking care of our basic needs. Self care tends to come from self tragedy or struggle. Self care feels weird at first, if feels selfish, we don’t know what to do. Anxiety I have also learned this past year that no one can give you self care The same thing does not always work; you’ve go to mix it up
