It's Self-Care Awareness Week (13th-19th Nov) and this week I'm joined by the founder of The World of Self-Care, Georgia Dodsworth.
What tools you can use to track your time.
How to pick your freelance projects and how to set your rate.
Why you shouldn't say yes to all opportunities.
Deciding when to take time out and utilising self-care tools.
Having a very clear and effective routine.
In this week's episode, Georgia shares her journey with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and explains how she became a successful freelancer while studying at university. This episode tackles a lot of heavy topics including suicidal ideation, self-harm and hospitalisation. We also discuss the importance of having a self-care routine and the value of activating your different senses when putting together a self-care plan. We explore how taking time out for self-care can help you to be more productive and well-adjusted, and to feel less anxious.
In this episode, we talk about how Georgia set up her own self-care routine. Georgia is extremely well organised when it comes to planning her days and she explains how this discipline has helped her BPD. Georgia's routine includes:
Using a Lumie light alarm.
Writing Morning pages to get all her thoughts out on paper at least 3 times per week.
Creating a to do list/ plan for her day.
Applying makeup to feel ready.
Not working in bed.
