“I do not think that word means what you think it means”

The princess bride.

The term “self care” has joined the ranks of other terms that have been watered down, co-opted, or re-defined to the point that it means nothing.

I have noticed a concerning trend with self care, it has been used to manipulate, bully, and has been productized and sold. So I asked my friend and selfcare & resilience coach Stacy Fisher to join me and talk about the topic, and how you can find what works best for you. (without making a purchase!)

Remember, feelings are meant to be felt, not used against you to make you feal.

What you’ll hear on today’s episode:

  • What is self care
  • Patterns and Habits
  • The self-care paradox
  • How to spot manipulation
  • The 8 dimensions of self care framework
  • How to identify rhythms
  • Daily rituals
  • How MLM’s use personal development to manipulate
  • Accepting what is
  • Finding your own routine
