Episode 66: Shake Self-Hate
Tip #5 - to shake you out of that self hate funk - and get to the self loveBan the self hate talk - no more. Just say NO when you mind starts racing and thinking about how horrible you are, how could you do this, just stop yourself.Cut the booze and pot; to clear your head and hear your heart, if you are self medicating because you can't face whatever it is, and you’re in pain, you are dulling the pain for sure, but you’re also dulling everything else.Splash water on your face - or if you can jump in the pool. Let that cold water shock the mean girl right out of you. Even if you’re not a big fan of the water or pools or rivers or whatever, this is going to change your tone real quickly enough to get you away from beating yourself up and into to soothing.Cut up a bunch of paper hearts - now you can write little love messages on them, or things you want to forgive yourself for, or you could even write down some of the horrible things you say to yourself, and then burn them. That’s right, here at self care is sexy I am give you permission to burn your hearts out. Because sometimes you have to do these weird little things to shake it up. And it’s really carthitc.Cook yourself something to eat - making yourself food is an act of self care. And it’s something you need to do anyway, but maybe put the effort into it like it was a date or something, you know bust out the wine glasses, even if your drinking water, and set the table, instead of eating over the sink or at the couch watching tv, do it up right, find a new recipe and have a three course spread; salad or soup the main deal and a desert. Do this. Do this for you.

Episode 7: Post Self-care guilt
Turn guilt into gratitude. Next time you feel guilty after self-care repeat to yourself “I’m human, just like everyone else”. Remembering this simple phrase can do wonders to the internal dialog that keeps guilt alive. Tell the other person. You might reach out to your friend and let them know you are feeling guilty for not helping them out. Have an open dialog and if they are a good friend, they should be able to put you at ease. Maybe find someone you trust to talk about, or hey send ME an email. Accept that people may be mad at you. What others think about you, is none of your fucking business. If you tell a friend you cannot help them and choose self-care instead, they should understand. Most of our friends are more forgiving of us then we are of ourselves. Journal. I love to write (duh, you’re reading my weekly blog). It is very therapeutic and helps to formulate precisely what’s going on. Write down why you are feeling guilty. Think of all the contributing factors. Maybe someone in you early life always made you feel guilty if you did not give them exactly what they wanted from you.Healthy guilt v. unhealthy guilt. Feeling guilty because you decided to take a bath instead of helping a friend move is a good example of unhealthy guilt. You didn’t do anything wrong, you are not harming anyone, and you didn’t promise to help months ago and are backing out. Plan more self-care. Turns out the solution to feeling guilty about taking care of yourself, comes from not taking care of yourself. It’s a practice, You may need to over saturate yourself with self-care, tender words, and alone time for awhile so that it can start to feel normal for you.
