Self-care is trending right now, and for good reason.

Because if self-care means intentionally taking care of yourself: mind, body, soul, then absolutely, let’s start a self-care revolution!

The problem?

All the self-care lists out there seem to be packed with ideas that frankly seem unrealistic.

Because as much as I love a good bubble bath + hour-long message, this working mama--who’s balancing entrepreneurship, family, life responsibilities, and taking care of herself--well, let’s just say there aren’t a lot of bubble baths happening around here.

Here’s the truth about self-care: It’s simply about all the small ways you tune in, listen to your body, and take small steps to take care of yourself.

It’s about flipping the script from what you should be doing, to focusing instead on what feels really good.

So how to make it happen in real life?

In this episode we dive into 10 self-care ideas beyond bubble baths, massages, and journaling

5 Ways to Begin Shifting Mindset 

1 | Know that mindset matters, and that you are not the problem. Consider that you may just have some thought patterns that aren’t serving you

2 | Know what mindset is not: not the thought, not controlling the thought, not choosing an emotion or feeling, not manifesting. Mindset is simply a different tool in the toolbox.

3 | Shine the light: Bring awareness + start noticing thought patterns.

4 | Start thinking about the thought pattern feedback loop: how they affect mood, how you act, the decisions you make, and the results you get.

5 | Open the door to the possibility of changing those engrained patterns, which will change how you process information, and eventually change your brain.

Ingredients that don't pass the Biome-Friendly test:

(1) Alcohol and ethanol 

(2) Strong surfactants like: SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) &  SDS (Sodium Hydroxide) - these are the most common. A bit less common but still come up regularly are quaternary ammonium surfactants, such as quaternium-15 and benzalkonium (try saying that 10 times fast!)

(3) Broadly all preservatives are not biome-friendly. Afterall preservatives are in formulas to kill bacteria. Some common examples here are phenoxyethanol, parabens, and sodium benzoate.

(4) Anti-microbial essential oils (thyme, eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree). Essential oils are potent in general. Those with antimicrobial activity are especially powerful. These should be used sparsely, and for specific areas (not everywhere all the time).

42 A Quick Guide for the Perfectionist: What to Do (and Not Do)

Feel Good Effect PodcastRobyn DownsComment

A Quick Guide for the Perfectionist: What to Do (and Not Do)

A Quick Guide for the Perfectionist: What to Do (and Not Do)

What to do (and not do) if you’re a perfectionist. In this episode we’ll dive into why you might be a perfectionist (and not even know it), plus how this mindset may be holding you back from your wellness goals, as well as what to do (and not do) about it.

Listen Now


Listen on Apple Podcasts


Key Takeaways

We all have an image in mind when we think of a perfectionist.

Impeccably dressed, clean home, always arriving on time, having it all together.

And while that image is certainly one way of perfectionism can show up, it’s not the only way.

Perfectionism shows up in different ways for different people.

So just because you don’t fit the stereotype image of the perfectionist, doesn’t mean perfectionism isn’t a mindset that’s affecting your life, or holding you back from where you want to be.

In this episode we’ll dive into what to do (and not do) to beat the perfectionist mindset.

We have a finite store of mental energy for exerting self-control, so we need to find ways to manage this energy.

A Decision Diet is a way to manage mental energy so you have more self-control and willpower when it comes to things that matter.
