What are you craving? By Zena Amundsen

I don’t mean the chocolate cravings I get every morning with my coffee. I mean deep down, in the centre of your core, what are you craving? 

Whatever it is you recognize that you need, I bet self-care is somehow involved.  

My most memorable time of needing self-care and self-love was when I found myself having to rebuild myself after my husband had left. It is what sparked my journey with money.  

And, it is how I found out that my journey with money and becoming financially independent started with loving myself.  

Self-Love = Self-Care = Motivation to become financially healthy. 

I still struggle with this. There are days the gremlin talk is loud and my feelings of self-worth plummet. I just want to hit survival mode.  

Coincidently, this is when financial health plummets as well.  

My countermeasure is to start with practicing self-love and care. 

Here is your reminder to love yourself, take some time out for yourself and dig deep to understand what it is you are craving.  

If you are needing some “you” time, here are a few ideas: 

  1. Try meditation.  

Classes can range from $100-$500 for an 8-week session. If that doesn’t fit your cash flow, try an app on your phone (Aura has a free trial and Deepak Chopra offers a free 21 day guided meditation). 

  1. Find a connection that is uniquely just for you.  

Try coffee with a friend that loves and supports you or connect outside somewhere in nature. These connections are free and won’t cost you anything. A pricier option would be to attend a one day retreat or weekend retreat. These can cost up to $200 a day, not including travel.  

  1. Pamper yourself with a spa treatment.  

If the local spa cost makes you cringe then carve out the time at home to splurge. Put on your housecoat, have a bath and relax at home on your own for free.
