    1 Reason Your Self-Care Routine Might Not Feel Good Anymore

    Welcome back to the Brown Girl Self-Care podcast.  With what is happening in the U.S. there may be times when you are out and about, wanting to "just be" or prioritize yourself, but it doesn't feel completely possible because you don't feel safe.  Instead of giving up on self-care, think about ways that you can make your personal space a place of refuge.

    Returning To My Roots With Earthing and Growing Food

    Returning To My Roots With Earthing and Growing Food

    Hey, hey!
    Welcome back to the BGSC Podcast.  If you have been struggling to feel centered or recharged, this episode is for you because it may hold the missing key in your self-care practice.  In this episode I'm sharing a bit about earthing, the practice of connecting physically with the earth as well as growing my own food.  Yes, after 4 or 5 years I've finally moved forward on getting a balcony garden started.  Earthing (or grounding) as well as growing my own food are tools for my self-care kit that are both helping me to not only tap into calm and joy, but also allowing me to reconnect with my roots.  Listen in for more.

What I needed WHEN I needed it

Hey Bre! I’ve already messaged you on Instagram about what this show has meant for me(thanks for your reply :) but I realized I hadn’t left an official review. For those seeing this review, I found this podcast recently and have binge listened through the past couple years of episodes. It’s had been a breath of fresh air. The episode about returning to my roots and how Bre talks about consciously taking a moment to somewhat pause before pressing play on an episode(make a cup of coffee or tea etc) is what I’ve already been doing each day. Using the podcast episodes as a way to pause and slow down and just take a moment to myself. It was just so funny because right as she was saying this part in the beginning of the episode, I was literally fixing myself some coffee and starting my day. This podcast has opened my eyes to a lot of things I didn’t know I struggled with and has also assisted in giving me clarity and boldness as far as my life decisions recently. Anyway, love the podcast. Need more like it!
