Welcome to How to Love Your Body - On today’s episode we are going to be talking about how to RIDE OUT 2020- We know this year has most likely been really challenging - for many reasons!
Even though we are nearing the end of this crazy year - we also know it may feel like it’s never going to end. That these last few months feel like an eternity.
You are ready to get this year over with and move on into better times ahead - we get it!
This is why we want to help support you in riding out the rest of 2020.
It’s important to do things that you can “land safely” on when things are feeling overwhelming / (insert word) - taking care of yourself, finding ways to cope, finding healthy distractions ...will help you get through the days ahead that feel hard.
Here are some tips/ practices you can add into you life that could help get you through these times:
Move your body
Prioritize sleep/ rest - The most important of them all.
Eat - Eat enough, eat what you want, eat what feels good - the point - eat!
Prioritize sleep/ rest - this isn’t just a physical thing.
Listen/ read books/ audios / podcasts that make you feel good/ supported
Body Image - Put post its on your mirror saying something empowering - giving yourself a little message- it could make all the difference.
Get rid of unnecessary stress - We get there are things that we stress about that we can’t just get rid of - but there may be things that cause you stress that you can - figure out what those things are and do it! (document story)
“Cliche” self care - When is the last time you filled up the bath with bubbles, lavender oil, your favorite candle, and some music? Seriously, do it!
Other self care - Ask for help! skip the dishes (ask your partner to help), hire a cleaner if financially available (even if it gives you a week break), get someone to watch the kids for the afternoon, Order a meal instead of cook, what are things in your life that you could really use help with that you typically don’t ask for support with - ask!
Validate your feelings (yourself) and also talk to a friend / family member/ trusted human in your life that could be a place to listen and understand as well - most of the time we are feeling something, so are millions of other people - we really are not alone in these hard times.
Release any kind of perfectionism going on - give yourself compassion. This is a year for the books - so no need to beat yourself up about anything - you are doing the absolute best you can.
We know it may feel lonely, we know it may like “IT’S JUST TOO MUCH” (we have said this many, many times to each other lol) which is why we created a community based support system to help you ride out the rest of 2020….
