How to Cultivate Self-Love & Prioritize Self-Care

When you think of self-care, what things come to mind?

Is it taking a bubble bath? Getting a massage? Or having that elusive spa day?

Or perhaps it’s a yearly trip you look forward to. Maybe you find that the same bit of beach you visit each year gives your inner battery a recharge.

And what about self-love? How do you feel about you?

Do you look in the mirror and critique every line, freckle, and curve? Are you happy with the person you are today? Do you feel you’re worth the effort of learning to love yourself better?

Today on the podcast I’m chatting with Jen Wille, a Life Coach dedicated to helping women deepen their self-love and develop their self-care practice. She’s unpacking her story of growing up in foster care, recovering from an eating disorder, and how she found herself leaving one career to pursue her passion for helping others in a more intimate way.

You won’t want to miss her practical tips for developing your own self-care practice, even if you don’t think you have the time! Jen believes we ALL can find a self-care routine that works for us and refills our tank daily.

So sit back and tune in to this heart-to-heart with Jen. And I’ll warn you: her down-to-earth, inviting presence will probably make you feel like you wish you were having coffee with her. So you might as well go ahead and pour yourself a cup before getting comfy and joining us below. ūüėČ

I don't think I used to ever give a second thought to how I responded to fear. Sometimes I was strong and pushed through despite the thick cloud fear brought. But others, I would curl up, completely crippled by the weight of the fear. Today I'm talking about 3 ways I've been changing my relationship with fear. Because I believe you can, too!

3 Ways I’m Changing My Relationship with Fear

When I was about four years old I was playing in my Grandma’s closet one day when my younger brother shut the door on me. I remember how quickly my young little mind translated the door being shut as I’M LIVING HERE FOREVER.

I didn’t, of course, live in that closet longer than a mere 10 minutes. But in the moment I was gripped with fear that what was really just a funny little adventure for my brother meant something far more drastic.

For years after, the idea of being enclosed in a small space terrified me. And I wouldn’t dream of stepping inside a closet because my little mind believed the door would always close. All because it had happened…you know, that one time.

And while I’d love to laugh this off with an “I’ve grown past this”, which holds truth, there’s more to the story. Because can still find my relationship with fear to be as consuming as it was that day in my childhood closet.

So today I’m coming out of the closet (see what I did there?) and sharing some of the ways I’ve been intentionally changing my relationship with fear. Because at the end of the day, why would we ever want to live a life ruled by fear?

And yet it happens. To most of us. Just tell me if any of this sounds familiar to you, too…

We hesitate to move, we resist change, decide against that bold step out into the unknown all because the F-word grips us with it’s manipulative whispers.

“You aren’t strong enough.”

“You aren’t talented enough.”

“You’ll do it WRONG.”

“People won’t want to hear what you have to say.”

Sometimes the whispers are born out of an experience we’ve had that leads us to believe THAT EVERY SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCE WILL BE THE SAME. If I got hurt once trying this, why the hell would I do it again? If I couldn’t do it three years ago, why would I trust I could do it today?

In other moments we find ourselves justifying our way out of something because we believe the fear is there as some sort of indication that danger lies ahead. Our primal instinct, instead of questioned, is responded to with fight or flight. But fear told us to. So it’s okay, right?

But the beautiful truth I’m hoping to share with you and me is this: we can CHANGE our RELATIONSHIP with FEAR.

We can take the reigns back, release the haze of the fear clouds, and embrace truth. And today I’m gonna tell you about 3 REAL ways I’m shifting my conversation with fear. Because I believe it can help you, too!

Fear can be crippling or it can propel us to where we're supposed to be. @kamilingren

Fear would like us to believe it's arrived because it's not safe to step outside of our comfort zone. It whispers "You aren't strong enough." It hold us back. I know I've felt the weight of fear more often than I'd care to admit, but I've been learning how to change my relationship with fear. And I want to help you do the same!
