Episode 28: Intentional Saving + Spending for Self-Care

Episode 28: Intentional Saving + Spending for Self-Care

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Are you doing your most important work/the work you were born to do?
  • Are you using your gifts and talents on projects and jobs that are best suited to you?
  • Are you using your time wisely?

Today, we are going to talk about how you invest your money and where that ties in with self-care. Here is my 5-part process for staying virtually debt-free.

S = SET A GOAL: Pick ONE thing you really want. What is it? What does it cost? Most importantly WHY do you want it?

M = MONITOR: How will you track your savings?  How will you keep your goal top of mind?

A = ARRANGE YOUR WORLD: How will you save? How will you avoid spending on things that aren’t related to your goal?

R = RECRUIT SUPPORT: Who will LOVINGLY hold you accountable to your goal?

T = TREAT YO’SELF: How will you celebrate your success of reaching your savings goal?

That’s it my friend, the SMART goal method for intentional saving and spending on self-care. I’ve made you a SMART goals worksheet, you download it right here.

Episode 27: Joy of Missing Out

Episode 27: Joy of Missing Out

Let’s talk JOMO! The joy of missing out.

A few questions to ask yourself:

  • How would you feel about about your life if you didn’t know what everyone else was doing?
  • What kinds of experiences do you want to have and how can you create them for yourself?

I am a huge JOMO fan, but man, it took me a long time to get here.

For years, I did all the things people say are fun: go to music festivals, go to parties with co-workers and friends of friends in the industry, go places where there are lots of people. UGH. What I experienced over and over was misery at trying to make my introverted self fit into these extroverted experiences.

The exercise: The 100% Guilt-Free Self-Care Energy Tracker

Go back through your calendar for the last 6 months and write down what experiences and people filled you up and what experiences and people sucked you dry. As you make your intentional fall plan – Do lots of what gives you energy and do less of what sucks you dry.

Now Rebeca’s taking on a new space and wants to make a self-care plan before she gets into the intensity of the project

My role as a coach is to ask questions to get her from where she is now and on the path to where she wants to be. It’s up to her to figure out who she wants to be throughout the coaching process and her one room challenge….
