Are you someone who feels energized by cleaning and color-coordinating? Do you feel boxed in by strict schedules? Do you get a rush from checking off your to-do list? This week's episode is about the next factor of the Big 5 personality construct: conscientiousness.  This factor defines how organized and efficient we are.  Let's talk about how where you fall on that spectrum affects how you manage stress.

Would you consider yourself a flexible person? When you're asked to make a decision, do you look to others or look within? Today we'll be talking about agreeableness- or how cooperative and sympathetic we are. Where we fall on that spectrum can help us identify how we best manage stress- and what grates our nerves like nails on a chalkboard.  We'll also touch on how the spectrum of this trait can thrive during social distancing

When you think about hitting up a party after work on Friday, how does that feel for you? Energizing? Appalling? Somewhere in the middle? In today's episode, we'll explore the scale of extraversion, or how outgoing and social we are.  Through some guiding questions to see where you might fall, we'll then explore how that can affect what works for you to manage stress- and what adds to it.  We'll also dive into how these personality types can manage time and stress during social distancing for COVID-19.

Self-care felt like a guessing game until I started to know my personality.  The facets of our personality influence what types of strategies and structures will make us feel happiest.  In this week's episode, I discuss the personality theory I'll be using for the next 5 episodes: The Big 5.  Find out what the Big 5 is, and how using those traits helped me find the right ways to take care of my mental health.

Watered Grass

What makes life worth living for you?  When I first started attempting self-care, I took this wild buckshot approach- not because I didn't know what to do, but because I didn't know enough about myself to choose the right fit.  One of the biggest steps to that was to identify what my real values were and ask myself whether or not they were guiding how I was living.  ! At the end of the episode, I'll walk you through an exercise to define your values.

The process of choosing our self-care can feel like another chore if we aren't sure what "self" we're really caring for.  Trust me, I know from experience.  As a compulsive self-care shopper, I didn't find out what worked for me until I took the time to understand who I am, without the messages about who I should be.  In this next phase of Making Self-Care Stick, we'll dive into the different aspects of ourselves that can give us clues for what will sustain our physical and mental health.

Last April, I opened up about my journey healing from my long history of disordered eating. The further I've delved into my treatment, the more I've started to understand some of the experiences and systems that sustained my difficult relationship to my body and food for so long. In this episode, I share my experiences with the hopes to educate not just about eating disorders, but about how layered the process of loving ourselves is.
