Spirit & Self Care: Suzanne Gundersen, Meg Haworth & Robert Manolson

(Author of Your Goal Guide) Debra Eckerling elaborates on healing- one important form of practicing self-care.

We wrapped up the month-long theme of reconnecting, talking about reconnecting with your spirit. Suzanne Gundersen, Meg Haworth, and Robert Manolson joined the #GoalChatLive conversation, which also covered self-care, self-healing, and intention. Suzanne Gundersen focuses on transformation and stress-resilience, Dr. Meg Haworth is a holistic psychologist and nutrition strategist, and Robert Manolson’s expertise is powerful play. All three are healers, so the conversation was full of positive energy and amazing tips!

What is the Value of Self-Care?

  • Suzanne: Self-care is about connecting with yourself. And then sharing it with others
  • Robert: Mental Health Optimism. Self-care for the mind is mental fitness
  • Meg: There’s pampering .. and then beneath it is self-care

How they Nourish their Spirit

  • Meg: Nature, meditation, reading… food, writing, journaling
  • Suzanne: Playing with my 3-year-old nephew, the ocean
  • Robert: Spending time in the Rockies. Also gardening, and enjoying food from their garden

Tips for Healing

  • Meg: Eat real food! Fruits, vegetables, organic meats. When a corporation cooks for you, you have to be careful! Listen to your body to see how it reacts to different foods.
  • Suzanne: After your body feels better, your mind can be clear! Build the rapport between the two.
  • Suzanne: Develop intuition. Believe the messages right in front of you. Give yourself positive reinforcement when you are good to yourself.
  • Meg: Remember the body-mind connection. Your body remembers things differently than your mind does. You need to release stuck energy!
  • Suzanne: The answer is always: Calm the body

A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals

Start with a plan. One of the biggest reasons goals fail is that we often don’t put enough thought into what we really want before diving in. Your Goal Guide by Debra Eckerling starts with that first, crucial step: figuring out your goals and putting a plan in place. As a professional writer, communications specialist, and project catalyst with more than 20 years of experience, Eckerling is prepared to help you achieve success.
