Self care is a topic that is near and dear to my heart.  I have spoken about it many times on podcasts, summits, and on social media, linking it to productivity and to energy management. That’s why episode 10 of The Positively Living Podcast is about how self-care creates resilience! 

In this episode of The Positively Living Podcast, Gillian Behnke and I are sharing the importance of building a healthy foundation, identifying your personal priorities so you know what matters most, and establishing boundaries to protect those priorities. Gillian Behnke and I cover the following topics:

  • Gillian’s burnout story and the turning point that led her out of survival mode.
  • How the word “simplify” led her to make the changes she needed.
  • That learning to ask why we do what we do — which is something we both love as questioners — was a key component to uncomplicating her life at work and at home.

It’s hard to pick a favorite takeaway for me, but if I had to, I would say that selfcare can be so quick and so simple.

Thank you for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips to create space for what really matters in your life
