Eye of the Tiger

Lauren

To continue this month's discussion of New Year's resolutions, I wanted to address the issue of motivation. Sometimes, when we've been working hard on something, we become so tired that we feel like giving up. It can be hard to remain resolute, ("purposeful, determined, and unwavering") but if we prepare emotionally for the difficulty of working to achieve our goals, and plan appropriate self care ahead of time, this will increase our chances of being successful.

Resolute

Lauren

It's December already! As the end of the year approaches, some of us may be contemplating resolutions; evaluating the goals we had for ourselves this past year, coming up with new goals for the year ahead.

Happy Halloween! Because the 5th Monday of this month falls on a holiday that celebrates identity exploration, I thought it would be interesting to do an interview centered around this theme.

When I think of my childhood, I think of magic. I have always been fascinated with the idea that people can be powerful, that human beings can develop abilities that allow them to do the impossible. When I was a kid, this meant I devoured Harry Potter, played with glittery wands, and adored Halloween. As an adult, I think this same interest in human power and transformation is what led me to a career in therapy, and a specialization in self care.

Shape Shifting

Lauren

Knowing who we are is so important to self care. How can we take care of ourselves if we don’t know what energizes us, what calms us, what excites us? But sometimes it’s hard to know who we are if “who we are” is in a state of flux. We are always changing. And maybe giving ourselves this permission to change, to experiment with our identities, can be self care in and of itself
