How to Have A Self-Care Mind-Set with Jeanette Bronee | UYGW041
Play • 39 min

As human beings, are constantly focused on the doing, doing, doing, and Jeanette advises us that if we could just take a “power-pause” and listen more, we can gain a better understanding of what we need to accomplish our Great Work.

Jeanette believes if we can listen more to ourselves, we can begin to understand what we need right now and truly begin to feel to engage in what Jeanette calls “mental listening”. We, as humans, are amazing, we are here to solve problems, and the things we worry about are the things we care about the most.

If we can pause for a moment, and shift the “care for” to “care about”, we can understand that solving problems is not just about needing time off or time to get away, it’s about learning to “un-worry”. It is only then that we discover "self-care isn’t really about self…it’s about care."
