THE POWER OF INTENTIONAL SELF-CARE WITH JENNIFER O’HARE
Welcome back to Mind Over Motherhood!
On this week’s episode of Mind Over Motherhood, I had an amazing conversation with Jennifer O’Hare from Love Me Free, a Movement.
We chatted all about the power of intentional self-care, the interaction between mental and physical health and what it means to be in alignment with your values.
This was such a fun conversation and I can’t wait for you to meet Jennifer.
LISTEN TO THE EPISODE:
THE POWER OF INTENTIONAL SELF-CARE
THIS EPISODE DIGS INTO:
JENNIFER’S JOURNEY: From successful perfectionist to depressed, overwhelmed and burnt-out mom of 3 – How Jennifer’s depression turned into an identity crisis, shifting her into more alignment with her values and purpose.
COPING STRATEGIES AND MOTHERHOOD: Motherhood causes an abrupt shift in the effectiveness of our coping strategies. The strategies that we once depended on successfully (and that worked well for our pre-mom lives) become no longer healthy or effective in motherhood. Jennifer and Carly share their own experiences with perfectionism and success, and how that set them up for a dramatic shift after becoming mothers.
What it means to be in alignment with your values, and the unexpected ways that being out of alignment can manifest in your life and in your body
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE:
THE INTERACTION BETWEEN MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH: From insomnia to weight loss, rashes and indigestion, our inner experience can manifest in bodily symptoms and upset if not identified and managed.
Carly and Jennifer discuss how important it is to be aware of the signals your body is telling you and how they may be linked to a deeper issue with your life’s alignment.
HOLISTIC SELF-CARE: Why we both feel the term “self-care” is overused and how important it is to define self-care in a way that is holistic, dynamic and responsive to your own needs. How being consistent and gentle with yourself is important to experience the benefits and for your self-care ritual to become a habit.
LOVE ME FREE, A MOVEMENT: Jennifer’s brand new quarterly subscription box and community membership launching in Fall 2020 for high-vibe, positive women and how it is the perfect translation of Jennifer’s skills and experience into a profitable and meaning-driven business idea.
