TBD 004: Physical Self Care

TBD 004: Physical Self Care

The next installment in my podcast series on self care takes a deeper look at what is physical self care. I think that physical self care is one of the areas of taking care of ourselves that is the most neglected.

My own journey to taking care of my physical self is long and winding and I really have only figured out what I need to be successful in this area in the last years. If you had told me 4.5 years ago I would be a person who needed to exercise 5-6 days a week to feel whole, I would have laughed at you. Fast forward to a lot of self work and guidance from people who I love and trust and I know that taking care of my physical self is one of the foundational building blocks to taking care of my whole person.

Take a listen to the episode and let me know how you take care of your physical self.

TBD 003: What is Self-Care?

TBD 003: What is Self-Care?

In the third episode of To Be Determined I decided to start a series on what is Self Care? We see people using #selfcare hashtag and attaching it to luxurious massages, manicures, and huge bubble baths with rose petals, but what is it really?

This is actually going to be the first episode of a serious that takes an in-depth look at all of the different aspect of self-care. Interested in learning more about your own self care and where you rate check out my article on some great self care inventories that help you determine what areas you need to focus on!

How Does My Self Care Rate?

How Does My Self Care Rate?

On the podcast we have begun a series on self care. I wanted to take a deep dive into what is self care in all aspects of our life and what we can do to take better care of ourselves.

In my personal practices of self care and my work with my clients I think one of the things that can be most enlightening is to take a self care assessment. The assessment asks you different questions related to self care in multiple areas of your life – social, emotional, physical, professional, and spiritual. I have also started a podcast series that will look at each of these areas and how we can work towards having better self-care for our whole selves.

If you’re interested in taking a self care assessment of your own here are my top two recommendations. Taking both isn’t necessary as there are definite similiarites:

This assessment is from PositivePsychology.com which has a lot of amazing resources.
This assessment comes from TherapistAid.com which has a great number of awesome worksheets on therapeutic topics.

After taking a moment to complete the assessment share with me what was a surprise to you about your own self care practice.

TBD 002: The Importance of an Inner Circle

TBD 002: The Importance of an Inner Circle

In Episode Two of To Be Determined we are taking a deeper look at why have an inner circle of people who are close to you is so important. After writing about Finding Your Circle, I thought it was important for us to talk about why that circle is so important.

It’s essential to feel supported as you take on the challenges of this life. Personally, many difficult times in my life were made easier by having the support of my own inner circle.

Who is in your inner circle and what kind of value have they added to your own life?

To Be Determined – The Podcast

To Be Determined – The Podcast

I am so excited to share with you my latest labor of love… my NEW personal development podcast, To Be Determined. The name started as a place holder while I waited for that light bulb moment to occur about what was the “perfect” name. After some time, that became the perfect name. Why? Because I want us all to remember that our best self is just waiting to be determined and you get to define exactly what that looks like.

In this first episode I am talking about how to extend yourself grace in the midst of a pandemic. However, I think the tips and reminders that are discussed can be utilized in our version of normal as well.

I invite you to take a listen and then drop me a review or comment below and tell me what you think! Also, I want to hear what you what you want to hear or read about so feel free to drop me a few lines with your ideas.

Here’s to living our best life today!
