What first comes to mind when I say ‘self-care?’ A bubble bath? Relaxing on an exotic beach with a book? Yoga? Since I made the conscious decision for this podcast to cover the unspoken topics of running your own business, I knew right away that I needed to speak about self-care. When I met Amy (on Instagram of course) I knew instantly she was a perfect match for this episode.
As s a self-care mentor and the one girl band behind Let’s Get Back To You, Amy's work is focused on empowering people to redefine self-care on their own terms, because self-care has a different meaning to each and every one of us.
In this episode, Amy and I openly discuss our own experiences with mental health and some of the boundaries we now set to look after our wellbeing more effectively. Amy redefines the term ‘self-care’ after recognising that it’s so much more complex than the stereotypical images society shows us and she also shares practical tips for determining our own meanings of what self-care really is.
