Appreciate Your Joy
Joy is a feeling you can cultivate and amplify. Today, Joy Ofodu guides you through an exercise to help you tap into “appreciative joy” on the days you need an extra boost.
Greet Social Anxiety With Compassion
If you’ve ever worried “Is everyone mad at me?” you’re not alone. Especially when we’re connecting digitally: It’s hard to read body language and feel assured that all is well. Today, show compassion to your social anxiety with Joy Ofodu.
Quiet Your Mind
You have everything you need in your breath. Use it to calm yourself in moments of stress or energize yourself to focus better. Practice with today's meditation.
Honor Your Complexity
It’s easy to feel like a human *doing,* but you’re more than your productivity. You are beautifully complex—and all the pieces you’re made of can help you feel fulfilled today. Today, join Joy Ofodu for a visualization practice to honor your whole self.
Your Self-Care Isn't Selfish
When life gets stressful, it can be hard to prioritize our wellbeing. Today, Joy Ofodu leads us through an affirmation journaling exercise to remind us that self-care isn't selfish. Grab that journal!
Honoring BIPOC Mental Health Month
Today marks the start of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Mental Health Month. Join us in honoring our BIPOC community members and setting an intention to care for your mental health this month and beyond.
A note from Shine: If you're struggling with your mental health, know that seeking help is a strength, not a weakness. Take the first steps to get support with these resources from Mental Health America.
Love but where did it go?
Love this podcast but not sure why it suddenly stopped! Didn’t see anything on social media about a break. Hope it will be returning! A wonderful way to start the day.
Short, Sweet, & Convenient
I love starting my morning off, listening to this podcast. It’s uplifting. It’s 100% my go to when I am crunched on time, but want to add in a little self-care or improvement.
Excellent podcast with incredible concepts and interviews.
Extremely valuable and free content!
