3 Ways to Reconnect with Yourself
*In collaboration with Sleep Advisor*
It’s so very easy to get lost in this modern fast-paced world of ours. Every hour we’re awake our self confidence seems to be under attack. We are either bombarded with advertisements intended to make us doubt ourselves or we’re scrolling through ‘friends’ social media posts feeling like failures at life.
One day you wake up and suddenly you can’t actually remember who you are anymore.
It often feels like we are running at full speed just to stay still. Sometimes you just wish you could pause it all. That you could press a button on some kind of cosmic remote control and the world would stand still long enough for you to gather your breath and just catch up.
If you’ve ever felt the way I’ve described above then take a deep breath, or six, go make yourself a nice glass of green tea (don’t forget the slice of lemon) and then come back and read my 3 ways to reconnect with yourself below.
Hi guys! Today’s episode of the Punch Drunk Soul Podcast is with Jessica Dimas, a writer, blogger and mom who’s passionate about using the law of attraction and self-care in her daily life.
In our conversation we dive deep into her experience using the law of attraction to overcome a difficult situation in her life and how she’s developed it into a practice that has helped her create her ideal life and then we discuss how you can do the same in your own life! For those of you that don’t know what the law of attraction is, it’s the theory that like attracts like – essentially the idea that people and their thoughts are both made up of energy, as is everything else in the universe, and that through the process of “like energy attracting like energy” you can improve your own health, wealth and personal relationships with positive thoughts.
In this episode you’ll learn…
What does it really mean to love yourself?
So I’m trying something new here…I went on a little Instagram Story adventure and decided to post it on YouTube so that I could upload it here for you guys. I love that Instagram stories are so spur of the moment and really connect you to people on a whole new level, but they do disappear after 24 hours so I thought in case you missed it – here’s my latest video all about self love and what it means to love yourself.
If you’re not following me on Instagram yet, please do! I’m planning to start doing Instagram stories pretty frequently to share things I’ve learned throughout the week. I’ll also post to YouTube so be sure to subscribe to my channel in case you miss my Instagram stories. And if you don’t feel like going to YouTube, I’ll also post them here. That’s the plan at least. 😉
So this video is about my recent revelation about self love and how I wasn’t really practicing it at all, even though I thought I kind of was. What does it really mean to love yourself? Find out what I think in the video!
Forget Saying NO! Why You Should Say YES More
Happy Friday my loves!
Normally, I write pretty extensive posts because I like to provide you with as much value as possible. But today I’m going to keep it short and sweet.
Everyone is obsessed with saying NO more right now. It’s sort of like a trending self-love buzz word. The concept behind it is simple: say no to the things that you don’t want to do. Some people, like Jess McCallum, over at Confident Life, have even started keeping an “Absolute NO List” which I actually quite like because it really helps you figure out the things you don’t want to do in advance – so before you’re even presented with a situation where you’d have to say no or yes, you already have your answer, no going back!
But as important as saying NO might be, I think it’s just as important to for us to start saying “YES” more. And I don’t mean being the “Yes, man” who says yes to everything because he’s afraid of having regrets and not living enough. I’m talking about saying YES more to YOU. Give yourself permission to do things that you might be iffy about. Give yourself permission to spend money on yourself without feeling guilty. Give yourself permission to be selfish. Say YES more to yourself because you deserve it.
