Self-Soothing To Be Less Anxious While Working In Corporate America
1973

Hey, girl, hey!  Recently, right as I was hopping off of an Instagram Live a young lady asked me about self-soothing.  I wasn't able to discuss it then, so thought the podcast would be an excellent place to provide some insight.

In this episode I talk about what self-soothing is, why I feel that it in some cases it's a band-aid fix (but definitely a tool for our self-care tool kits) and also some ways to do it to bring down stress levels and anxiety.

5 Things I Wish That I Knew While Battling Depression
2125

In this episode I'm sharing five things that I wish I knew years ago when I battled depression.  The Mayo Clinic defines depression as a mood disorder that that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest.  

Causes of depression include abuse, serious illnesses, personal problems and even genes with women being twice as likely as men to be depressed. (WebMD)

According to Hopkins Medicine, approximately 26% of Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.  That is about 1 out of every 4 adults.  

My hope is that this episode, and my story, help you or someone you know to understand that if you've ever experienced depression, anxiety, sadness or uncertainty, you are not alone.

Dr. Nic Hardy On Caregiver Stress, How Overcompensating Breaks Down Relationships and Why "We Need To Talk" Text Messages Aren't Self-Care
3085

Hey, Hey!

In this episode of the Brown Girl Self-Care Podcast I'm in conversation with Dr. Nic Hardy, a Licensed Therapist based out of TX whose zone of expertise includes helping us repair and/or grow from our relationships while also addressing challenges we face that are rooted in fear, anxiety and trauma.

His work has been featured in Cosmopolitan, HuffPost, NBC LX, PopSugar Ask.Men, Bustle, PscyhCentral and other national publications. He has also consulted on mental health for several fortune 500 companies. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Houston, where his research focused on relationship satisfaction in Black and minority families.

Today, Nic and I are talking about self-care as it relates to issues including:

Survival mode

Managing tension in relationships where we are the primary caregiver

The importance of not overcompensating in relationships

How to better communicate with your partner in healthier ways so that we aren't sending/reading the dreaded "we need to talk" text message

Story Time: I Tried Fixing Myself Because I Thought I Was Broken But Instead I Became Addicted To Self-Help
1139

I used to believe that self-care (specifically through self-help and personal development) was a cure for how broken, unworthy and damaged I believed myself to be.  I was addicted to any and everything self-help but would never take the time to implement anything I learned.

If this sounds like you, I want you to know that you aren't broken.  Listen to todays episode and let me know if you can relate to my personal share this week.

3 Ways To Start Taking Up Space Today
1931

How can you begin to embody what it means to take up space?  As a Black woman who worked in corporate America I can tell you that there were many, many times that I bit my tongue or hid my brilliance and based on conversations I've had, I am not the only one.

How do we embrace our value and begin to take up the space we rightfully deserve?  Today I'm sharing three specific ways:

1. Honor your value

2. Own your words

3. Fill the space with your presence

Also, a bonus one is that everything we do doesn't warrant an apology (like I used to believe).

Press play on this episode to listen and be sure to share with someone that needs to hear todays message.

3 Things To Consider When Bouncing Back From Bad Decisions
1317

Heeeey!

In today's episode I'm answering a community members question about how to bounce back from a bad decision.  This is a great question because everyone makes choices that don't end up panning out in ways that we hoped for and when that happens we feel stuck on how to move forward.  There is usually shame around it too.  You are more than just the outcomes of your decisions.

Girl, have you saved your seat for my affirmation workshop happening on January 2nd?  This will be a virtual event so no need to hop on a plane or book a hotel.  For 90 minutes I'll be teaching you how to think about your thoughts and words and how to use affirmations in a way where you start to notice positive transformation.  If you're tired of feeling like the words you are saying are a lie, if you don't know how use affirmations or if you want to create a life of more calm, clarity and confidence this workshop is for you.

The Other Side of "Pretty Privilege" With Vlogger Oh! Stephco
4403

Hey, hey!  

I'm talking with Vlogger Stephanie of Oh! Stephco about her experience as a Black woman that doesn't have "pretty privilege."  Don't know what that is?  In a nutshell it means the more attractive you are the more opportunities (money, interest, relationships, gifts, favorable treatment, etc) are available to you.

I found Stephanie's viral Pretty Privilege video back in July (click here to watch) whilst scrolling around on Youtube and co-signed my way through parts of it.  I wanted to be in conversation because I've had similar experiences as a Black woman that doesn't check the boxes of what society considers conventionally beautiful or relevant.  For anyone that has ever felt less than and invisible I want you to know it isn't you!

Listen in then let me know your thoughts on todays episode.

Those Times I Preferred Surgery Instead Of Working

In this episode I'm sharing three things I had to learn to do that helped me get a better handle on my avoidance issues.

As the saying goes - If you stay ready, you ain't got to get ready - and I'm a firm believer that women, especially Black women, must be prepared for emergencies.  Our communities are not prioritized the way that we deserve and so if something happens (heaven forbid) like another flood, massive earthquake, or civil unrest, being able to safely stay indoors or quickly leave our homes with what we need to survive and take care of ourselves is not an option.

I need you to do three things:

Have a pen and notepad ready to take notes

Commit to spending 30 minutes after the episode reflecting on three ways you can begin your prep work journey today

What kind of rest are you in need of sis?
679

Hey Sistren,

Gotta quickie but goodie this week in the form of some reflection.  When I say the word "rest" do you automatically think of sleep?  There are other ways to rest and today I'm talking about some of them in the hopes that you will get laser focused on what type you need when you need it.

Tickets are now available for the Brown Girl Self-Care Virtual Summit!

Holding Space For Disbelief Kills Your Vision

Solo episode today!  I recently experienced a woman walking completely and boldly in her vision and it was a sight to see.  I've been telling myself for the last few months that I am ONLY walking in Faith and there is ZERO room for disbelief.  Seeing this Queen do exactly that was an excellent reminder for me to keep building my table even if no one else is in the room to sit at it (yet).

Sis, if you are working at a job that no longer serves you, hear me when I say you are not stuck.  If you are afraid to set up healthy boundaries in the workplace, you are not out of luck.  If you have never negotiated to get what you want and need when looking for a new position it's not too late.

What can you do if you aren't being valued?
1775

I was re-reading portions of "When they call you a terrorist" by Patrisse Cullors recently and a question jumped out that made me pause.  The question was  - "What is the impact of not being valued?"

For me, when I'm not valued the impact results in feeling invisible, used, not respected and worthless.  This is definitely nothing new as the system was designed to keep us oppressed while using our genius for profit.

If you've been feeling like you aren't enough or like you aren't valued, today I'm giving you 4 ways to reclaim your power:

  1. Remember what you bring to the table
  2. Expect the best for yourself
  3. Treat yourself the same way you'd treat someone you admire
  4. Invest in yourself

Tiyanna Washington on Taking Back Your Life When Your Periods are Out of Control
4401

When your menstrual cycle is out of control how do you feel and what the heck do you do?!!?!?  Heavy periods are very common for black women and they can get so bad that our lives can be turned upside down and even ruined.   We are missing days from work, fighting with doctors to help us (and not just use us for insurance money) and overall mentally depleted with the ever raging red war. 

Listen in today while I chat and share with Tiyanna Washington.  Tiyanna is a NYC-based licensed social worker and youth mental health advocate recognized for her mental health advocacy and community service.  She has worked within the school system servicing youth diagnosed with emotional disturbances, behavioral-conduct disorders, and severe cognitive and learning delays.  While working through the challenges of assisting our youth she has also had to deal with super heavy periods which left her drained. 

Click play to listen as we share our experiences, plus Tiyanna gives us some takeaways that helped change the course of her cycles.

Lyvonne Proverbs on "Surthriving" When the Monster in your House is your Father
3740

Sexual abuse and violence against women runs rampant in the U.S. as well as other countries around the world.  How do we work through this when it's a parent or relative that violates us? In our community is it ok to talk to our children about ownership of their bodies and that "no means no?"

Today I am speaking with Pastor Lyvonne Proverbs, a New York City native, body and sex-positive preacher, transformational speaker, poet, educator, and creative social entrepreneur working to end #ChurchToo. An Emmy-award-winning media producer, plus featured in Essence as well as Cosmopolitan, Pastor Lyvonne is the founder of beautiful scars (@WereSurthrivors), an online storytelling agency focused on trauma, healing, and resiliency. She is committed to eradicating childhood sexual abuse having dealt with it not once but TWICE in her lifetime.

Listen in as we sit down, get as comfortable as we can with a topic like this and share our experiences as well as our journeys to healing.  

*Trigger Warning as well as a few cuss words sprinkled in as well.  This is a #realtalk type of conversation*

Are You An Over-Apologizer? Girl, Stop it!
1542

Bre Mitchell (host of the podcast) dives into what it's like to be an "over-apologizer", how it shows up in our life and how to shut it down! Life is too short to not be the best version of ourselves we were placed her to be.  Apologizing for everything limits us, not enhances.

KyAira Carter on Meeting Your Parents Where They Are and Releasing Unhealthy Beliefs
3239

Today I'm talking with KyAira Carter, Certified Yoga Instructor and Owner of Yokyni Organics.  Stepping into entrepreneurship came from a year of intense therapy where she was encouraged to release years of suppressed emotion, toxic behaviors and unhealthy beliefs formed about herself and others, and generational trauma that she - like many other African American people - was carrying without even realizing. Healing those wounds allowed her to replace everything she'd unlearned with unconditional love, healthy boundaries, and self-confidence.

Today we are talking about how she was able to meet her parents where they are after they separated, how she ended up moving back in with her dad after experiencing freedom on her own, and when she realized she could set boundaries in her (sexual) life.
