Self-care has become a buzzword recently, but what does it really mean? Self-care is simply the act of taking care of oneself physically and mentally. It’s about taking the time to do things that make you feel good and improve your overall health.
We should never underestimate the power of self-care. It is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves, yet so many of us never take the time to truly care for ourselves. We are always on the go, juggling work, family, and social obligations. We never seem to have time for ourselves.
But what if our guest Meha Agrawal tells you that taking just a few minutes or even hours out of your day to journal and understand and process your thoughts and feelings can profoundly impact your life? It’s true! Journaling can help you discover your values, goals, and aspirations.
Meha explains in this episode how journaling can help us understand ourselves better and start the process of self-care. It can be challenging to start and keep journaling, but it is essential to stick with it. The more you journal, the more you will appreciate its power.
Meha is the Founder & CEO of Silk and Sonder, a women’s self-care and mental wellness startup. She was previously a software engineer and product manager for Goldman Sachs, Stitch Fix, The Muse, and Fueled. Now, she is on a mission to transform the way modern women reflect, rejuvenate, and achieve through the power of pen to paper, data, and community.
