The Self Care Industrial Complex

Many women I know say things to me like:

      • I need a morning routine
      • I spend too much time on my phone
      • I should do more yoga
      • I should work on my sleep habits

Ep #50 – Sacred Procrastination

A client thought she was procrastinating but we realized that it was actually a sacred decision to wait because there was some healing she needed to do first.

With another client, at the beginning of our session, she said she wanted to work her procrastination but by the end of the session she realized she was doing so much and was prioritizing what was most important.

Capitalist culture puts productivity before all else but actually sometimes it’s important to slow down and let yourself heal before taking the next step. I also share my personal story about navigating procrastination and healing.

A few years ago I spent the winter in California. Some days, at my friend’s house, we’d leave the doors open and one day a little bird got in.

She was flying around distressed and then she flew into my friend’s bedroom as I went to put a doorstop in the door.

But when I went into my friend’s room, she wasn’t there. I looked and listened but nothing. Maybe she’d flown out of the door when I turned my back.

Ep #49 – #MeToo

*trigger warning*
The night I thought I was going to be raped…

I wanted to share this story because I think it’s important when we’re healed enough and ready to share our stories and also because I’ll use it to teach the difference between fight, flight, freeze, and fawn.

Fawn is a nervous system response that’s common for women and also other genders and can keep us safe in dangerous situations.
