7 Intro to Self Care

7 Intro to Self Care

What happened when Sophia stopped tracking calories and weighing herself every week? She started losing weight. And that might sound counterintuitive, but this week we are talking about those things that we put on the back burner while we hustle, but which are necessary to maintaining our sanity, our passion, and our drive. Ben says that listening to your body is more important than tracking calories. Your body should hopefully tell you what it needs. And when you own a business or work freelance, you might stop listening, thinking that you just need to grind harder. That's why we are talking about a few things that we do when we're feeling anxious to keep ourselves on track mentally and physically. For Sophia, it's hiking, weight lifting, yoga, meditation, baseball, drinking tea, and napping. While for Ben, it's biking, summer jogging, and yoga. Physical health isn't everything. So is mental health. We are not doctors so if you think there is something wrong, go see a professional. But you should make a point to do the little things that make you feel good about yourself. For example, Ben always has chocolate on hand, and usually splurges on the nice stuff. Sophia places a significant emphasis on physical touch. Hug your friends, hug your family, cuddle your pets (unless they are fish), and get a massage. (Ben ads that consent is key!)
