Season 1 Episode 4: Putting you in the Equation – Addressing Self-Care

It never surprises me when we reach that moment in therapy and I ask, “how is your self-care?” Some clients pause and don’t know what self-care is. “Put myself first? I don’t know how to do that.” Is one response. Others say, “that’s just a millennial thing.” and laugh. Some clients say “look, Tracy, I don’t have time for bubble baths, spa dates, and wine.” Ah, you see there are so many beliefs about what self-care means.

Tune in to this weeks episode – I am talking about the myths we hold about self-care and what self-care is NOT. I also talk about what some of the experts say about self-care. And finally, I challenge you to find a space of what self-care would look like now – today – in this moment.

To be honest, I have never been a fan of the word “self-care.” And many of my clients would agree. Social media has boomed #selfcaresundays – which is not a bad thing, but you don’t have to wait for Sunday to engage in self-care. Be sure to listen to the end of the episode – I propose a different definition for what self-care truly is! You don’t want to miss it!

BONUS! I created this handout to help you start putting self-care in your week! Download it here.
