S5E14 Whose Voice Is This Anyways?

Sleepy, hungry, thirsty, achy, energized, tense- we’re not talking Snow White, we’re talking the memos our bodies try to send us all day. There are lots of reasons that we struggle to understand the communication our bodies are giving us, even if it’s where we reside. Especially around the holidays, our signals can get mixed with lots of other influences. In this episode, I break down some guiding questions to help us understand why we’re ignoring our body’s requests, so that we can start to be better listeners.

If you have a menstrual cycle, there’s a whole different set of messages your body sends you throughout the month.  Learn to read them and respond by joining Cycle Celebration, a 4 week coaching program set to begin January 13, 2021.

Here on Watered Grass, we’ve explored areas of identity and personality that influence our self-care practices. Sensitivity is a superpower that makes us rock stars for empathy, creating change, and being helpers to ourselves and others. Some of us are more tuned in to the energy of others- but what defines an empath or a highly sensitive person? Tune in to today’s episode to find out.

The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, but for Empaths and Highly Sensitive People it can bring some challenges. Packed social calendars, crowds, and overstimulating decor can really exhaust the energy of empaths and HSPs.
