In today’s episode of The Daily Sweat Podcast, I chat with Tandar Tanavoli, a certified life coach and motivational speaker who began her coaching journey after a car accident led her to reevaluate the way she was using her gifts. This episode covered self-care from a variety of angles: physical self-care, creating boundaries, dealing with anger and hurt feelings, and being true to ourselves.

Key Points of Discussion

  • How do you feel about the deeper conversation we’re having about self-care?
  • Figuring out whether we are responding from fear or from love-and how that affects our decisions
  • Why responding from our “inner child” can lead to emotional roadblocks as adults
  • Strategies for recognizing (and getting out of) victim mode
  • Breaking up with codependency
  • Dealing with anger
  • Communicating your boundaries
  • What to do if your boundaries are crossed
  • Why we need to trust ourselves

Notable Quotables

“These unhealed wounds do surface and no amount of massage or bath is going to pop it for you”

“We’re like thumbprints. Every person is different from everyone else,” 

“Everything all boils down to loving and taking care of ourselves, doesn’t it?”
