Self Care Strategies Intro
You are in for a treat today!! Michelle is a super sweet mama. She is about to share tons of amazing thoughts, ideas and resources. There are truly nuggets in this interview for everyone and you are not going to want to miss it!
She explains how she went to the Autism Center of America and was surprised at how they started by teaching her about mindset first. As a result, that changed everything for her! Michelle then intentionally began to learn about self-care practices and realized how she had been neglecting her self-care.
She learned how to become intentional about making sure that she was taking care of herself to create long-term solutions. So often, parents of Autistic children end up dealing with chronic stress and it is so important to learn how to get out of the stress cycle. I can’t wait for you to her why it’s so important to complete the stress cycle and what you can do to do just that!
She is a mama to three spunky kids, with two on the Autism spectrum. Most days, you’ll find her with a cup of coffee in one hand, surrounded with piles of unread books (and half-folded laundry) when she’s not chasing her herd of not-so-tiny humans in her backyard or at a local beach. She’s a certified mindset and mindfulness coach. She helps mamas ditch caregiver burnout through holistic self-care practices, build authentic friendships through the Sisterhood, and balance work/life/play.
