How To Have A Self-Care Mindset with Jeanette Bronée – Encore | UYGW071

We are excited to bring you another encore presentation of a popular episode of Season 2. We hope you enjoy!

As human beings, we are constantly focused on the doing, doing, doing, and Jeanette advises us that if we could just take a “power-pause” and listen more, we can gain a better understanding of what we need to accomplish our Great Work.

Jeanette believes if we can listen more to ourselves, we can begin to understand what we need right now and truly begin to feel to engage in what Jeanette calls “mental listening”. We, as humans, are amazing, we are here to solve problems, and the things we worry about are the things we care about the most.

If we can pause for a moment, and shift the “care for” to “care about”, we can understand that solving problems is not just about needing time off or time to get away, it’s about learning to “un-worry”. It is only then that we discover “self-care isn’t really about self…it’s about care.”

The Unleashing Your Great Work podcast is sponsored by the Great Work Journal! The Great Work Journal is here to answer the question “But HOW?” How can we figure out what our Great Work is? How can we get started, stay with it, and finish our Great Work so it can go out in the world and have an impact?
