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, and not the fluffy version mentioned above. When I met Amy (on Instagram of course) I knew instantly she was a perfect match for this episode.
So, a bit more about Amy… this lady is a self-care mentor and the one girl band behind Let’s Get Back To You. Her 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. It’s an intuitive concept that focuses on us aligning with our own wellbeing and a true passion project for Amy who wanted to change the conversation after her own experiences with burnout and anxiety.
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.
It’s a must-listen for anyone who knows they need to do more to prioritise their self-care and I really hope you find it beneficial.
To stay up to date with Amy, head on over to her website Let’s Get Back To You. Don’t miss her free self-care challenge here – I’ve taken it myself and honestly loved it so much. The challenge is short and sweet for just three days (so no huge commitment) and is aimed to get you thinking a little more about self-care, and a little differently too!
You can also find Amy posting over on Insta @letsgetbacktoyou where she shares a mix of empowering quotes and self-care tips.
