Self-care has become quite popular over recent years with more women taking it seriously now than ever before. Women are abandoning their superwoman capes and heading to salons for hair maintenance, nail treatments, and massages. They’re making time for themselves and have started to understand that they aren’t any good to their families or anyone else if they aren’t taking care of themselves.

In this episode, I have a conversation with Julia Aziz, an interfaith minister, licensed clinical social worker, and author who supports those who care for others - whether they are healthcare professionals, counselors, educators, or natural caregivers.

You’ll hear Julia’s definition of self-care, which is quite different from the popular definition that you may associate it with right now.

Julia talks about:

  • How you can begin to acknowledge your needs and how you’ll feel as a result of this practice
  • Why you may not feel well even when you’re practicing traditional/popular self-care rituals such as exercise, healthy eating, getting enough sleep, spending time with friends, and treating yourself, etc.
  • The harsh inner critic that “can see no right” and leads you down a path of self-blame
  • Knowing when to create boundaries to avoid the unhealthy practice of beating yourself up
  • Why self-forgiveness is so important for moms
  • And more…

I invite you to listen intently with an open mind and heart. I challenge you to choose at least one of the concepts that Julia shares and start your own self-care regimen.

Welcome back to a new season of the Moms with Dreams Show! I’m SUPER-EXCITED to be back from summer break. Although summer is my favorite season and I usually never want it to end, I don’t feel sad about the seasons changing this year. That’s probably because I REALLY enjoyed my summer this year. I mean - I maximized the days, weeks, and months and made time for a lot of fun doing the things that I love.

Now that the kids are back in school and summer’s just about over, I’m ready to get back into the new season. I didn’t feel right about jumping back into an interview for the first episode. Instead, I wanted to share some of my summer highlights with you and also give you a glimpse of what you can expect in the new season. Granted, some things may change as we go along, but that’s to be expected. We are constantly evolving, and the only constant is change, right?

I hope you enjoy listening this season and are inspired to get closer to your dreams. If you have a topic that you want me to cover or have any comments about the show, please feel free to email me at Erica@momswithdreams.com.

Here’s to a great season together!

Love and Blessings,

Erica
