Self-Care has become such a buzz word that nearly everyone is taking about, but few are truly taking the time to really, wholly, and unapologetically, nurture, love, nourish, and cars for self. Few admit not actually knowing how to really do it.


So here's a Cookie Jar of Self-Care reminders and activities to help breakdown and promote, true, Self-Care. Things to tend to the mental/emotional, social, physical, and spiritual elements of our wellbeing.


You can either create a Cookie Jar of Self-Care activities that you can pick out once per week (or when yiu decide to do it), with things like having a warm bath, going for a road trip, listening to music, spending time with a loved one, meditating, eating a good meal, or more, or you can create any or all of the ones in the video.


A Cookie Jar of Dates (with yourself) - remind yourself that the way you treat yourself sets the platform for how others treat you, by treating yourself to dates. Things like going to the cinema, going to a museum, going for a nice meal, and more.


A Cookie Jar of Accomplishments. Sometimes we filter out our success and focus on the things not going right. So write down all the things you have achieved, and constantly dip in your jar to remember. Then clap for yourself! Well done.


A Cookie Jar of Reminders. For those who live with anxiety, or simply need some reminders during the day, create a Cookie Jar of Reminders that you can bring to the Office with you, or keep to hand.


Reminders with meditations, breathing exercises, or simply 'having a word with yourself', can be so helpful.


Whatever you do, just remember to treat yourself with love, compassion, kindness, and care.


Here's a video of the directions to make one, or why not just come to one of my Workshops and create one there? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUPqNd8_a-w&feature=youtu.be


Please feel free to email me at info@novena-chanel.com if you need any help creating your jar and want to attend one of my Workshops on Self-Care.

Today's show is about celebrating ourselves. ‪#‎MotivationMondays‬


MONDAY 28TH SEPTEMBER 2015


POSITIVE NEWS WATCH.


I think it can be agreed that in the Media we hear more about the negative stories of men and women, especially those whom are black/brown, than stories that inspire, marvel, and enlighten us.


We will therefore be spending Motivation Monday celebrating the boys, girls, men and women, throughout the world; the unsung heroes and heroines, that have done great things in their communities.


Do you know a community hero or heroine?


Have you heard of a fascinating News story, or seen something that you believe should be reported in the News?


Email me at talkbackwithnovenachanel@novena-chanel.com.


Let's raise awareness of the Positive things in the world, and our communities.

Is the Education system failing blak children?


The School to Prison Pipeline


Vaughn Arrington's success and inspirational story


and lots more.

Are you ready for next week's topics?


The show's will be about celebrating, understanding, and challenging ourselves.


MONDAY 28TH SEPTEMBER 2015 on ‪#‎MotivationMondays‬

TUESDAY 29TH SEPTEMBER 2015 on ‪#‎TalkBackTuesdays‬


On Tuesday I will pose the following questions:


1) WHO ARE YOU?


On last week's show, while talking about race, a discussion began where I questioned where someone would stand within a political situation, stating where my attention would as an African/Caribbean woman. Where would yours go?


Would you identify as black/white/Indian etc, first, or would you first identify by your gender, country of origin, or as 'human'?


What would be your first allegiance?


Let's look at Michelle Obama for example: Should she stand for female issues, first, or black issues, first? Furthermore, as a human being, should her priority be to humankind, first?


Let me know your views by commenting on the Facebook posts, or calling/texting the studio on Tuesday morning between 7am and 9am on 07584 849 199.


How do YOU identify?


2) IS THE 'N' WORD EVER OKAY?


With the sadistic history behind the 'N' word, and the 'reclaiming' of it by some, I ask you guys at home:


A) Why is it okay to use it? If not, why not?


B) Is it okay for EVERYONE to use it? Why? Why not?


Callers will be encouraged to speak their truth, within a live discussion with each other, on air. Please, no swearing

😫

.


3) IT OVER TURNING WHITE SUPREMACY, OR REPLACING IT?


I recently read a post with a woman airing her views about the black men that spit hate towards black women... she stated "You do not want to overturn white supremacy, you want to replace it"... a powerful statement.


So I'm asking you guys at home:


A) Can you dislike the black woman or black man, and still be 'Pro black' empowerment?


B) What do you think some of these men and women who post hateful things about black men and women are really struggling with?


Let's talk about it.

Take a moment to simply slow down and be, in the here and now; not stressing over yesterday and what could have been done differently, nor worrying about what tomorrow brings.


Instead, just being in this very moment; smelling the scents around you; feeling the ground beneath you (wiggly those toes in your shoes or press them into the ground). Listening to the sounds that surround you; breathing in and breathing out, fully; placing your hand on your heart and silently feeling its beat... that is being in the moment, that is smelling the flowers of life. That, is a blessing.


You are alive.

Have you ever wrote a post and looked over it a week/month later and thought "They didn't need to know that".


We are being taught to think, reflect and process outside of ourselves; sharing ourselves with the world through cracked filters; isolating ourselves from our own internal locus of evaluation and measurements of self worth; inviting examination from those with smudged and projected lenses.


Every reactionary post, every post that details your most intimate thoughts and stories, paints a permanent record of who others decide you are.


Every funny story about your family, day or life, works to build a profile of your daily movements and life, often to those who would not normally be invited into your living room.


Every upset, controversial, attention seeking and/or sinister meme posted, shapes who you are in the limited minds of those who refuse to look deep enough to see more, and sits, building, within your own subconscious mind.


So, be mindful of what you deliver to the world on a silver platter. It IS a permanent record in someone else's mind, and maybe even a captured image in their phones camera roll.


Breathe before you share.


We are becoming the generation that thinks outside of our own heads; using others as sounding boards and validation. Scary when you think about it, right?
