Self-Care Resources

Check out these resources for self-care activity ideas and support! I'll continue updating as you share your favorites with me.

Meditation/Mindfulness Resources

Insight Timer - my favorite meditation app. Over 30-thousand free meditations, searchable by length, goal, or type of practice. One thing to note: these are all audio recordings in various spoken languages - there's no visual component or transcript.

Some of my favorite Insight Timer meditations and teachers:

Smiling Mind - I just discovered this app, and I love that it is completely free and offers programs. You can select a program, and then each day there are practices prepared for you that help you move along the track. I'm trying out the Digital Detox program first! This app also appears to be audio-based with no captions.

Visual Meditation - There are many free visual meditations on YouTube, this one is captivating and colorful!

Visual Breathing Meditation - Simple and fantastic for focusing on your breath.

Grounding & Connecting with Inner Wisdom

The "Hell, Yes!" Checklist - Outlines a simple process to make aligned decisions with more ease, and strengthen communication with your inner wisdom.
