Self-care is preventative care. Manage your stress and engage in daily self-care to prevent burnout and health problems.
Once upon a time my default setting was stressed all the way out. I had a lot on my plate, and like many others, I thought I was being selfish if I took time for myself. I could wait – there was always something “more important” to do. How wrong I was! In college I learned about self-care and how important it was. It was this thing of import that made me take an interest in self-care. It did not take me long to notice how many people need restorative time for themselves. And now I bring what I have learned to you!

How To Do It
The great part of self-care is that it is supposed to be easy, fun, and positive. The best part is that it is totally unique to you!
There are endless ways to engage in self-care. You do not need to be rich or have a lot of resources. You can engage in self-care and stress management anywhere you are at.
The only right way to do it is the way that makes you feel better. Sometimes you have to hit your own reset button.
My podcast and blog explore a wide range of topics that relate to self-care, wellness, the importance of leisure, and stress management.

A Holistic Approach
Your body, environment, and mind are inextricably connected. That is why I take a biopsychosocial-spiritual approach to teaching and integrating self-care into your life.
Self-care encompasses a myriad of possibilities. In the biological approach we take care of our bodies. In the psychological approach we take care of our mental wellbeing. In the social approach we take care of ourselves as it relates to our external environment; this includes culture, and we even consider your spirituality when figuring out what kind of self-care you need.

My first foray into psychological research, and one for which I won an award. This research is a great step into a journey that explores how awareness of media tricks can help improve individuals’ body image.
