I support creative business owners in accomplishing their design dreams.
The podcast is on summer break! For June and July, I’ll be releasing shorter mini-episodes focused on revisiting key topics from past interviews. Each episode will have actionable takeaways for you to dive deep into so that you can apply what you’ve learned to your business and life.
About This Deep Dive:
As entrepreneurs, we’re told quite often to focus on growth and improvement. But as therapist Lea Lester reminds us, self-improvement goals that negatively impact our mental health aren’t really allowing us to improve. Rest and self-care is an important part of the journey, too. And being self-aware can help us take a more sustainable approach to self-improvement.
For a more sustainable approach to self-improvement, try to maintain self-awareness. Check in with yourself and notice, “Am I activated? Am I stressed? What’s going on in my body? Have I been more tense lately? Am I feeling overwhelmed?”
Our feelings are messages telling us that there’s a need. Once you’re able to notice your feelings, be open to meeting your needs.
