Self-Care Sunday Links 1.31.16

flowers in vase, creative joy retreat

Some Sundays I share links to posts from other bloggers on body image, self-care and well-being (and a few of my own, too). Below, you’ll find pieces on everything from building healthy boundaries to not comparing ourselves to others to adopting a new perspective on self-doubt. I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday!

A list of helpful body positive, intuitive eating and meditation blogs.

On self-doubt: “The problem for so many of us is that we think that our uncertainty about whether we’re doing right, or as well as we could, means that we aren’t the right person to do the work – to create, innovate, lead, teach, write – whatever it is we are doing.”

On healthy boundaries: “Your boundaries are about you and what it looks like for you to live with integrity, aligning your actions with your values and beliefs. Boundaries are in the service of love, honesty, faith, health.”

I’m so glad Anna brought back her awesome podcast “Love, Curvy Yoga.” Here’s her first episode back where she shares what she learned in 2015 and her word for the new year (which I love).

5 truths about work in your 30s. One of my favorite truths is: “Your career should support the life you want to live.”

Self-care tips for new moms.

Instead of comparing your creative life to others, consider these questions.

Lately, I’ve been exploring how we get things done while respecting and honoring our needs. You’ll find helpful tips in this piece and in this piece on being productive on our own terms.

Loving yourself in pieces: “Well. If I can’t love myself to pieces, maybe I can love myself in pieces.”

What you don’t feel brave.

Rewriting self-care for you: “My self care was, and is, a gentle and compassionate journey of listening and befriending myself and my soul purpose every day.”

Rewriting Narcissus: “What isn’t a myth is that there is someone looking back at us in the mirror, in the camera, in the water…asking to be seen.”

If you’re uncomfortable with feeling your sadness, these suggestions may help.

Honoring creativity as soul-care: “I see my life as my art. I am no longer defined by a job I do or whether or not I embody what being an artist feels like to me. I am my art and I bring myself to the day to day of my life…Being creative, for me, is simply about seeing beauty in the mundane. It’s about noticing the sky and listening to the heart beat of our home. Being in the kitchen bare-foot—yep, bare-foot, because I need to feel the ground. There is no right way for it to look…”

You have all the permission that you need.
