Being Intentional about Self-Compassion with Lilit Lewis

Today, we’re talking about self-talk and self-compassion – this is something we talk a lot about at The Balanced Life and is so important to our overall health.

Many of us will start a health + fitness journey and focus on all the physical components, but sometimes we fail to address what is going on inside our head, thoughts, and mind. We also fail to look at how that impacts the way we feel and act, our relationships, and our self-worth. All of this is connected. It can be a huge mistake to embark on a health and wellness journey without addressing the mental side of things. That includes mental health, emotional health, and how we talk to ourselves.

How we’re talking to ourselves, and the thoughts we’re thinking, affect the way we feel and affect our ability to be successful and make positive changes in our lives as a whole

  1. I was asked by my physical therapist if I was seeing a counselor. She said no one should have to go through that much stress alone.

    The thought never crossed my mind. So I found this podcast very interesting ?.

  2. I sincerely enjoyed this podcast. So often being kind to yourself is lost. I always told my 2 girls that no one and material things cannot make them happy. You have to be happy and love yourself and then you will be able to be truly happy and have the ability to love someone else. That being said, with work, husband and the girls, many times I neglected consciously being kind and loving myself. Many times my adult girls thank me for teaching them this life lesson. Thank you for this great reminder!!
