Notes & Resources

Pamela Elaine and I had the opportunity to speak with Coach Meg in August while we were fully immersed in our self-care series.  Her talk naturally led into more self-care and really inspired us to stay with self-care into September.  So we are really excited to share this episode with you.

Coach Meg talked a lot about self-compassion and how it works in our brain and nervous system.

Compassion is Mother Nature’s soolthing balm.

I loved that quote! The compassion creates an increase in oxytocin which settles the suffering.  We talked a lot about creating awareness of the suffering.

  1. Name it
  2. Accept it
  3. Connect with others, you are not alone
  4. Have compassion for yourself

Great show!  Thanks Coach Meg!
