    5 steps to radical self-care: a framework for self-love

    5 steps to radical self-care: a framework for self-love

    In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I share 5 steps to incorporate self-care into your life and embrace yourself on a whole new level.



    When I first began taking the concept of self-care really seriously, it felt quite uncomfortable to me.



    How would I be able to take care of myself in a way that was actually nurturing instead of destructive? How could I be kind and loving to myself instead of feeling hateful and ashamed? How could I ever feel at home in my body and soul when all I wanted was to be someone I was not?



    I didn’t know the answers but I knew that I needed self-care big time. I was drowning in my guilt and shame and I knew that turning around my view of self-care was essential for me in order to pave a path to more self-love and to a healthier life. So, slowly, step by step, I dipped my toes into the practice of self-care and with it, I began to recover from an almost life-long battle with self-esteem and self-kindness.



    Over the years, I learned that taking care of myself was an ongoing practice, but that I didn't have to put myself into a box (you probably know how much I hate being "imprisoned" in systems) in order to succeed at continuously making sure that I was looking after my needs.



    I created a framework for self-love that is not only super flexible but also super effective and today, I'd love to share this framework with you.



    Here are 5 steps to incorporating the practice of self-care into your life.

    Commit

    The first step towards any change is always commitment. A really, effin' big commitment. A daily commitment, in fact.



    You need to make a pact with yourself, promising yourself to do what it takes to take care of YOU.



    Now, to be totally transparent, I had to renew this promise many times as I slipped and fell, but with each renewal, my resolve grew.



    So, commit to your healing, commit to your self-care, commit to your life. Every single day.

    Touch

    Don’t be afraid of touching your body. When we lack self-esteem, feel big and too much, we often have no idea where our boundaries are. The more we touch, the more we’ll know where we begin and where we stop.



    This creates an unmeasurable level of self-awareness and it also elevates your relationship with your body and weight. You can’t continue to live in your head, but truly need to drop into your body more and more.



    Touch will do that for you.

    Let go

    Part of my self-care practice was to let go of many thoughts, concepts, "realities", dreams, and people in order to gain life, energy and joy.



    I let go of toxic friends who were constantly talking about diets and weight loss. I let go of Facebook pages because of the constant bombardment with "positive thinking" without any research or actual tools behind their words.



    Over time, I began to say goodbye to the dream of being someone else, someone my parents wanted me to be (aka. a doctor or a CEO, someone who was suuuuper successful in society's eyes). I released the desire inside of staying a little kid without female curves or responsibilities of an adult and instead began to take ownership over my life and my heart's longings.



    Letting go, saying goodbye, and decluttering is a big process on the way to cultivating a rock-solid and life-affirming self-care practice. If you do it consciously and courageously, you’ll take huge leaps forward and live a kind of freedom that you may now only dream of.

    Use your senses

    Walk barefoot and feel the blades of grass touching your feet. Use essential oils and make it a game to become aware of all the nuances in the scent. Feel the rain or the sun kiss your skin. What do you notice? What does it feel like? Massage your hands when you’re at work. Stretch when you get out of bed and allow your body to gree...

    Covid-19 & How to Overcome the Fear of the Future

    Covid-19 & How to Overcome the Fear of the Future

    The Covid-19 pandemic has the world holding our collective breath and has given birth to a tremendous amount of inner turmoil. Many of my clients talk about waking up in the middle of the night with panic attacks, experiencing major headaches and a general feeling of unease.

    There's the pain of the current situation, but also the fear of the future.



    When is this horror going to end?

    How are our lives ever go back to normal?

    Will I stay healthy or will a loved one be infected?

    What if my gym will stay closed for another for months?

    What's going to happen after all of this?

    Can I ever go back to work again?

    Will my kid return to school this term?

    When will I see my friends again? My grandma? My sister?



    These are just some of the questions we ask ourselves and create major (mostly painful) stories around; an endless loop of negative thoughts that keep us stuck in fear.

    I love the dream of past and future. They seem so real. - Byron Katie

    Yes, this is an extreme time. Yes, we are afraid. Yes, the future is uncertain.



    But it's never been any different.

    In essence, nothing's changed.

    We've never been guaranteed a tomorrow or even a life in an hour. Life is uncertain in its essence - whether there's a pandemic or not.



    The worry about the future, the constant creation of horror scenarios inside your mind, the hopelessness and inner terror will not create the outcome you desire and will not change a thing about what is currently happening.



    Instead of worrying, begin to allow yourself to be in the present, relax and create the grounds for power and aligned action. How? This is what I talk about in the podcast!

    COVID-19, Diet Culture & Self-Shame Spirals

    COVID-19, Diet Culture & Self-Shame Spirals

    In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, I offer a glimpse behind the scenes of how we are dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and how I can support you in these extreme times.



    From meltdowns to immense gratitude to shame to joy, we're going through a whirlwind of emotions and every single one of us has a unique experience and we need to make space for all of these emotions to express themselves. And I do mean, ALL fo them - the positive emotions, the expansive emotions, the happiness and love, just as much as sadness and fear.

    If it feels super hard for you, please know that you are far from alone.

    If you want to have some fun and just not think about the pandemic, it's OK and you are not alone. 



    If it feels overwhelming, if you're angry, scared, bitter or have the feeling that you cannot breathe, it's OK. This is how it is right now.



    If you feel like crap because you sobbed into your child's arms, it's OK. This is how it is right now.



    If it's all too much and you just want it to be the way it used to be, it's OK. But, yeah, this is how it is right now.



    All you can do, really, is take deep breaths, do what you can, be extremely compassionate toward yourself and your loved ones and practice tender, loving kindness whenever possible.

    If it gets too hard, reach out. Resource. Don't believe that you have to do this on your own.

    I am making extra space in my calendar for a few more coaching sessions this week, so if you feel called to dig deep and find strategies that will help you to get through this tough time, finding your very own core of peace and living your life from that deep sense of safety and nurture, book your complimentary discovery call with me now: annesophie.us/discovery



    Your life is worth it.



    Enjoyed this episode? Share it with others in your life who MUST listen to it right now. YOU are a change maker in this world and your voice needs to be heard.

    10 Simple Ways to Romance Yourself

    10 Simple Ways to Romance Yourself

    In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast I share my top 10 ways to romance yourself.



    1. Have a date with yourself.

    Pick a fancy restaurant (one that you usually only go to with a love interest or your partner) and dress up. Wear a sexy dress, do your hair and put make up on. Even wear super sexy underwear.

    2. Send yourself a postcard.

    I love this because it makes me appreciate myself, makes me chuckle and smirk. And there’s nothing better than coming home to a surprise postcard with a few beautiful and kind words written on them.



    You can go a step further and write yourself a letter of appreciation and forgiveness.



    Put it in a beautiful envelope and send it to yourself. This will make it even more special.

    3. Stand in front of the mirror and proudly proclaim,

    “I love my body.  I love my thighs, my hips and my tummy.  I appreciate all the incredible things that my body allows me to do.  I am perfect exactly the way I am”.  For bonus points, do this naked.

    4. Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers or pick yourself a bunch of flowers.

    Flowers; I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with them. I never really notice them when they’re there, but when they’re not – especially in spring – it feels weird. I have grown to loooove tulips or sun flowers and buying myself a bouquet makes me feel appreciated and taken care of.  Don’t wait for someone else to send you flowers, do it yourself and enjoy the dots of color in your home.

    5. Be curious and listen to yourself.

    Learn something new about yourself every day. What do you like? What fascinates you? If you were an animal which one would you be? If you were a superhero which one would you be?



    Get to know yourself on a more intimate level than you’ve done before. Reduce all the noise of daily life, let go of all responsibilities for a few moments and simple get to know your core. You’ll be surprised at what you find out, I promise!

    6. Be irresponsible.

    You know the feeling of being in love, right? When you’re newly in love, all you care about is that one person that makes you so happy: you think about him all day long and nothing else seems to matter. Food, your job, your workouts, other friends, family, etc. nothing brings you that high that your boyfriend brings you. And this high makes you do some irresponsible things like, let’s say, get married after 6 weeks, spend more money than you should, skip work or other dates.



    Well, you are your own biggest love, so it’s totally fine to be irresponsible in order to court yourself. Buy yourself a pair of new shoes, play hooky for a day to spend it outside with yourself, eat a few pieces of lemon cake and ditch your silly weight concerns. Etc. It’s OK to be irresponsible from time to time and HAVE FUN. Don’t take life too seriously, seriously.

    7. Go on a hike with yourself.

    Listen to music or an audiobook or simply listen to nature and observe it in all its glory.

    8. Sign up for a brutally hard gym class.

    This may not seem obvious to you and it may feel counterintuitive, but believe me, you’ll feel awesome after the class and you’ll discover amazing things about yourself.

    9. Connect with your inner child: play with legos and color with pencils.

    This’ll help you reconnect with your creative side and getting a bit silly will strengthen your self-confidence.

    10. Do something you’ve always wanted to do.

    What have you been dreaming of for most of your life? Have you always wanted to be a singer? Then do karaoke in a local pub. Have you always wanted to go to Thailand? Book a flight and do it. Have you always wanted to learn knitting? Sign up for a knitting class. Have you always wanted to speak Spanish? Start listening to podcasts or sign up for a class. The possibilities are endless.
