We're all about products that encourage self-care, help us get better sleep, or give us glowing skin, which is why we were so happy to see Sephora vastly expanded its wellness selection.

On Being a Positive Caregiver: An Interview with Veteran Caregiver Carol Bradley Bursack

According to the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) and the AARP Public Policy Institute, approximately of Americans care for an adult. According to the same sources, a caregiver’s health appears to deteriorate over time and as burdens rise. Staying positive is perhaps the hardest challenge of a caregiver, especially over time. There is no one more equipped to tell us how to do that than veteran caregiver Carol Bradley Bursack. She has spent more than two decades caring for a total of s...

Being Your Best Means Taking Care of Yourself

The Importance of Detox For Your Mind, Body, and Soul

Detoxification, also known as detox, is a program that cleanses the body of substances and toxins. Many who engage in this activity are trying to overcome some kind of addiction. Some of the methods that can be used in cleaning the mind, body, and soul include detox and rehabilitation programs. When drugs are abused, they get into the body and mind and eventually destroy your soul. Ascertaining that your mind, body, and soul are clean not only is it helpful to you, but also to those who ar...

Spouse’s Disturbing Behavior

Been married about 10mth. We’ve known each other 10 years, mostly not together as he is from overseas. He moved to the US and we got married recently. Seemed a bit homesick and perhaps depressed after a few months, but that’s it. Recently he started not coming home. It started small. He was late from work or school, didn’t text or respond to texts or calls. Then he just wouldn’t come home until next day and wouldn’t say or would just say be home late and ignore any follow-up question. After the ...

Getting back into our bodies

As I take a step back and look around, I’m beginning to notice that a lot of what I do as a coach, as a writer, as a speaker, even as a designer, is helping people get back into their bodies. This has been the focus of my own self-care and inner work since the summer, reconnecting with my body, its needs and its wisdom. We dissociate from our bodies during early childhood trauma — it happens to everyone. And disconnection between mind and body remains. They continue on as two separate entities. ...

Taking care of myself

So I’ve been doing a lot of taking care of myself since we moved to Maine. I’ve been writing every day (thank you 750words.com — 36-day streak!), going to yoga almost every day (sometimes twice a day!), sleeping late, lying on the couch a lot, eating the best foods for my body (so much local organic here!), exploring new spiritual therapies, staring at the ocean a lot, connecting with old friends on long phone calls, and reflecting on old wounds. I think I burned out. I think it happened a long ...

Why It Takes Courage to Rest and Let God Love You Deeper

Something happens when you find yourself lying in bed unable to fall asleep. Sometimes life enters seasons of uncertainty and stress that keep you awake. You feel restless and search your heart for glimmers of what once made you feel alive, young and innocent, refreshed. Jesus understands and sees that longing in us — to find a way to feel safe, loved, and held again. As sunlight first warms you in the morning, Jesus draws near to whisper: I am here. I am making a way. For you. With you. I heard...

Does Anxiety Cause PTSD or Does PTSD Cause Anxiety?

“PTSD is a whole-body tragedy, an integral human event of enormous proportions with massive repercussions.” ― Susan Pease Banitt This question came up in conversation when I was speaking with someone who has experienced severe panic attacks to the point of calling them “debilitating”, requiring inpatient care.  As they were sharing about the ordeal, they told me that when they contemplate the time spent seeking treatment and the aftermath, it ramped up both the anxiety and PTSD symptoms...

6 Ways to Show Yourself the Love You Deserve

Fortunately, a number of people do decide they are finally ready to start loving themselves. But what made them ready, and why have they waited so long to start?

Yes, Beauty Is Self-Care, but Don't Confuse That With Pampering

The dictionary definition of self-care is "the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one's own health" - and this extends to beauty, too. Most recently, people have connected it with using a face mask or taking a bath. However, the importance of self-care should not be confused with pampering, because those two words can take on many meanings, is totally dependent on the person, and can be practiced in a number of ways. For some, it comes in the form of a beauty regimen (myself inclu...
