I begin today’s show by reading part of the first chapter of my book, The Extremely Busy Women’s Guide to Self-Care. Because this is where I really lay out the experiences that formed the foundation of my self-care work. I offer them to you with the express idea that you don’t have to wait for a crisis to begin your own deep dive into self-care.
In this show, I also focus on my end-of-year rituals. I’ve done these for many, many years, because I’ve found it useful to really take stock of exactly what was created… and how the result was. I also take note of my self-care, and notice where the gaps are. We are culturally conditioned to think such activities are selfish. But I say they’re necessary.
You’ll learn some useful questions to ask yourself, and the basics of an end of year assessment. Then you’ll be able to take what you learned forward towards building an amazing 2020.
Happy Holidays wherever you are. I’m so glad you’re on this ride with me!
