Our favorite theologist is on hand for this discussion on the concept of spiritual self-care and how/if/why it is applicable, regardless of your current level of religious practice. Never fear, despite the subject matter – we remain heathens of the highest order!
We take a break from the season of self-care to address a glaring hole in last season’s theme – inspired by Netflix’s take on the founding fathers. How much wiggle room do you get before you’re changing someone’s impression of history? What if Benedict Arnold really WAS a werewolf?
This question, and others, await your listening pleasure…
We have our minds on your money etc.
Start the recording with a phone ringing, throw in a doorbell at about the 20 minute mark and mix liberally for yet another dreamy concoction – live from the Rat’s new McMansion!
We talk about our relationships with money, and why they matter a lot.
Professional Self Care is more than work life balance – but let’s face it, that’s where everyone goes with it.
We try to drill into it a bit more than that, come see how we did!
Since this is so directly tied to the Psychological aspects of the last episode – we wanted to address this one quickly. We talk about how we relate to our emotions, the struggle to be honest with ourselves, and how we recognize our positive efforts to practice this dimension of self-care.
We chat about the status of mental and intellectual self-care and the multitude of effects on other dimensions. Chock full of good advice, and more than a few psychotic breaks – you know, just for fun!
We deep dive on the first of our dimensions of self-care -what does it mean to attend to your physical self?
Bo, our emotional crash dummy for this season, has a bit of what you might call a motivation problem – can getting off his ass help? How might he go about it, and what are the pitfalls? Is there more to it than a gym membership? Come find out!
This week we are introducing the topic of self-actualization, as well as introducing the last four of our Two Smokes Dimensions of Self-Care.
We chat about the differences between habits and routines, and introduce the concept of self-awareness before introducing the first four of our dimensions of self-care.
We introduce and try to lock down some definitions of the self – including the long history of attempts to define and then improve it. We then explore how these attempts have blossomed into a full-blown industry, and how that might look as it progresses over time.
