What if we got the idea of self care wrong? 

What is self care isn’t about spa days, and buying candles and cozy robes and a glass of wine? What if self care was supposed to be about time, and contentment, and asking for help, and being paid a fair and living wage? 

What if self care wasn’t supposed to be something that was whitewashed and purchased?

What if it was a fundamental change in how we support our needs? 

Today, on the podcast, I’m diving into what self care SHOULD mean, and how we can support ourselves in times of higher output. 



Todays episode is sponsored by the Nova Scotia Government. Today I’m asking you, as part of our team of 971,000, to work to slow the spread of COVID-19. Online self-assessments are available HERE (and are SO easy to fill out and book a time for testing!)

Furthermore, for anyone living in HRM between the ages of 18-35  can volunteer to have a COVID test completed to help slow the spread in our province.

Who can volunteer? 
People with no symptoms of COVID-19 who have: 
– Been to a social gathering of more than 10 people in someone’s home 
– Been to a restaurant or bar in downtown Halifax after 8 p.m. 
– Between the dates November 9 and 22. 

If you do not have COVID-19 symptoms, you do not have to self-isolate. You won’t receive any fines for having socialized. You must watch your symptoms closely for up to 14 days. A negative test does not mean it’s safe to socialize.

As my 6 year old says, teamwork makes the dream work. Let’s do this.
