#14 - How to Show Up for Yourself (mini bonus episode)
Show Notes

What does showing up for yourself mean? In this mini bonus episode recorded live in my Facebook group, I talk about how it’s about sticking to the promises you make to yourself. It’s making a commitment to YOU. And how doing this in small ways consistently will prove to your brain that when you need to show up in big ways, it won’t have to worry about it. You’ve already given it the proof that you’re capable of it!

 3 different ways I cover for how to show up for yourself:

  • creating a schedule you can stick to
  • setting and respecting your boundaries
  • shaping your space to cater to your needs

What does this look like in practice? Here are some examples from this episode:

  • Let’s say you want to wake up at 5 am but typically get up at 7 am. Instead of forcing yourself up at 5 am right away and snoozing for two hours, start setting your alarm a little earlier each day so you can slowly work back to waking up earlier.
  • Tell your partner what you need from them. If you’re the type of person who just needs to vent once in a while but you’re not looking for a fix right now, say so. If you’re on the receiving end, you can ask “are you looking for a solution or are you just looking to vent?”
  • We’re conditioned to believe that our workspaces should be clean and tidy all the time. And sure, some people need clean and orderly workspaces, but not everyone thrives in this environment. Pick what works for you.
