Merry and Mindful, Taking Time for Yourself during the Holiday Season

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays 🎄❄️

I am dropping into your inbox on this holiday to offer you a soulful conversation I had with certified life coach, yoga teacher, and self-care aficionado, Erica Diamond, who lives by the words:

“When you take care of yourself, you take care of the world.”

I think we can all agree that the world could use your care right now. And I would add that the world needs you right now, so do what you can to care for yourself, please.

This conversation was filled with so much loving and actionable bites, I encourage you to take some time to listen to this episode, perhaps before you head into the fun (and chaos) filled holiday festivities. Here are some bites you can expect from this episode:

  • Learn practical tips for incorporating self-care into your daily routine

  • Understand why simple tasks like walking, water, and breathing exercises can be so important and a window into transformative personal growth.

  • Insights on setting boundaries and dealing with difficult relationships, especially during the holiday season.

  • Finding the value of imparting self-care to your children and how to do so.

  • Learn the ripple effect of self-care and how it can positively impact your relationships and the world around you.

You can listen to the full episode here.
