Episode 6: Winter fatigue? 7 Self care ideas to shift your state!
Friends. It’s that time of year- January has been the longest!
Who’s done with it already? ❄️😬❄️
For many, it’s a season where the energy is low, things are lagging, and there’s the potential to feel a bit stuck, cold, and lethargic.
So this week, i thought i’d share 7 ways that might help to shift your state when in a fug and feeling some kind of way. Along with other random explorations and embarrassing stories. Of course!
Expect some real life "learning moments" from my time living in Norway and lots of accessible ideas for you to adapt and explore on your own exquisite journey! Plus some RnB water droplets, for good measure! 💦
And Eartha/Ethel wisdom. Always. 💅🏾
Most of all, i hope you can take something from this podcast and use it to bring yourself back to a place where you feel more connected to yourself. A little lighter, so to speak. less fug, more feel good!
