Episode 32: Self Care

Now that the holidays are over, it’s a good idea to focus on taking care of yourself. This week Janine and Shannon discuss the importance of self care and what that means for them.

Discussion topics include:

  • The fact that self care means something different to everyone
  • Shannon and Janine’s favorite self-care activities
  • The joy of floating in a flotation tank
  • The importance of creating time for self care (whatever that means to you)
  • Shannon’s idea for making exercise feel like self care when it usually doesn’t
  • Taking away the barriers to taking care of yourself
  • Making sure that your treats (like shopping) are actually good self care
  • Quiet reading or nice walks as self care (Shannon)
  • Crafting with friends as self care (Janine)
  • How Janine and her brother practiced self care by gorging on pot stickers in Walla Walla
  • Belly laughs as self care


And finally, as promised, here’s a picture of Janine, her father Gene, and our waiter, Steve, at Shiki Hibachi Sushi on Main Street in Walla Walla, Washington. You can see the dish of potstickers (pork gyoza) in front of Steve. Delicious!

  1. I want to party with YOU, Janine! The idea of downing two dozen pot-stickers in one go has me thinking that in another life we must have been soul mates! 🙂

    I loved the links — especially More Cowbell and Pattycake. I hadn’t seen Cowbell in a couple of years and I was really laughing at both of the videos. One of the things that I like to do when I need a good laugh is to YouTube “The Evolution of Dance” and dance along with him. Ten seconds in, I am laughing my a** off. It is one of the silliest things that I do, and I freakin’ love it!

    In another post, I already wrote about my self-care jar with the slips of paper that contain all sorts of different things to do to improve my well-being.
