Becky Lauridsen is the Founder of IOME - Guilt Free Self Care. IOME is a membership organization that provides access to a supportive community in the areas of Mind, Body, and Soul, with plans that include access to discounts with community partners, monthly therapy/coaching session, and monthly small group engagements. IOME provides the therapy/coaching/small groups, and partners provide an array of discounted services to members, including but not limited to massage, chiropractic, nutrition, yoga, fitness, skin care, travel, and interior design. Becky is a LoCo Think Tank member, and founded the business several years after burning out early in her career as a therapist and leaving the industry. She later realized her struggles were due to her failure to tend to her own mental health needs, and she founded IOME in 2018. Her basic premise is that the mental health industry would be more effective if they could engage people in their mental health maintenance before they're in a terrible place. Becky shares how it's not selfish to make space for self-care, and that you can serve others better if you keep yourself in good shape - Mind, Body, and Soul.
Episode 12:: Soul Care - An Interview with Becky Lauridsen
Thrive: Mental Health and the Art of Living Free
April is FINALLY here! We made it through another LONG week in the midst of COVID-19, social distancing and the global pandemic. Today, We are starting a new series on soul care. For years, I used the term self-care. I heard influencers online talk about self-care Sunday. Chatting about facial masks and getting a pedicure. Getting pedicures and massages are amazing! But these acts aren’t enough to truly care for your soul. Most of us are overwhelmed, depleted and exhausted. Our batteries are generally drained. Our relationships are anemic. I believe we must first care for our soul. In these series, I’ll be talking with friends, colleagues, and you’ll hear from me about soul care. We’ll get into the nitty-gritty by defining soul care. And discuss practical ways to practice soul care. Today, I'm interviewing Becky Lauridsen . Becky is an Licensed Professional Counselor and Founder of IOME. It’s an I Owe Me instead of an I Owe You, offering Guilt Free Self Care by partnering with local businesses to offer discounted self care services and products. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, it became alarmingly clear to Becky just how important self care is and just how detrimental it is without. On the show today, Becky and I discuss some of the following: The difference between self-care and soul-care strengthening relationships by practicing soul-care Whether or not soul care is spiritual ? Practical and tangible ways that you practice soul care through establishing a routine, spending time alone, doing something you love Listen now: Click here to listen on Apple Podcasts Click here to listen on Spotify Click here to listen on Stitcher Resources: You are the girl for the job!

Becky is also a licensed professional counselor. As a counselor,and also in her own personal life, it became alarmingly clear to her that womendo not get enough self-care in their day-to-day lives. The majority of womenare dealing with things like anxiety, depression, guilt, past trauma, low-selfesteem, feelings of stress, excessive fear, poor body image, and limitingbeliefs. Just to name a few. The worst part of it is, women think it iscompletely “normal” to feel this way.
