Making Self-Care Stick

“This series has taught me that habits are about making room, not just forcing yourself to do something!” 

Who wants to feel happier and healthier? Sure, we all do. In today’s busy and stressful world, we could all benefit from a little more kindness to ourselves.

We all can think of one or two things we’d love to build into our schedules.  More time with our families, a meditation practice, time for hobbies… the tricky part is finding the time, resources, and motivation to make those practices stick. Work, home responsibilities, and demands from our personal lives can stop us from even starting a new habit or routine that’s just for us.

So how do we do it? Every Thursday  at 9 a.m. EST I’ll be releasing a new episode of Making Self-Care Stick on Watered Grass.  In this segment, I’ll feature a different aspect of the psychology of habit formation, including: finding the right habit for what we need, finding the time, establishing a resilient mindset, and reinforcement that works.

But it’s not just episodes! There’s a free workbook, too.

“I enjoy the connection between the episodes and the work book. I find it is motivating. I find it’s a lot more difficult than I anticipated to think about habits and why to start or what habits I want. I never really put much thought into it before this.”

“I like taking the time to identify why I might have a tough time starting a habit I think that is important. I also liked that you have the references for your episodes so I can explore a few more things as well! I’m going to go back and listen to a few to see if I could add anything else to the list.”
