In this episode, we’re talking about the fill your cup first experiment.
We bring up the guilt that we felt at the beginning when we started prioritizing self-care, and how we overcame that feeling with time. It’s a work in progress!
We compare how being a teacher (or a parent!) is like being an apple tree. If we nurture our tree, delicious apples will be made for others to enjoy.
We talk about the many gains we noticed from filling our cups first and how we are working on not feeling any guilt in putting ourselves first.
This episode is perfect for you if you are interested in learning why starting a self-care practice is important and to gain some ideas on how to get started, guilt-free.
If you would like to experiment with a morning meditation, we’ve created a guided mindfulness practice for you in our free resources library – The Balanced Educator.
