Maintaining Light + Energy in the Darkness:
Self-Care Planning Retreats for Improved Mood + Energy + Health for the Winter Season
Learn to utilize self-care practices to maintain optimal energy balance. Alaskan winters tend to bring our energy levels down, but regular whole-person self-care can help.
Ensure that your whole-person self-care practices include the 5 key elements: movement, fuel, healing, play, and creative connection.
Fill Your Toolbox
We all need a variety of tools to choose from, as our minds, bodies, and environment change daily. Discover which tools work for you, and load your self-care toolbox up with them.
Assess your self-care needs, develop your personalized plan, and turn it into a contract with specific dates, expectations, and *most importantly* rewards.
One Day Self-Care Mini-Retreats
Plan to thrive this winter! This retreat and planning session is your opportunity to evaluate your personal self-care needs, explore your gaps, and experiment with new concepts to round out your practices. We’ll work together to develop a self-care plan that makes the most of your strengths and addresses your areas of weakness with practical, small steps. You’ll leave with a detailed self-care contract, a specific plan for follow-through, and lots of inspiration to carry you into the winter months.
Self-check: how do you measure up in each of the 5 Zones of Self Care? Identify which areas are your strengths and which are…not strengths. We’ll then work together to build on the areas you’ve got dialed and identify priority areas for improvement.
Expand your repertoire with new self-care strategies. Hone in on the techniques that work for you, and build them into a self-care plan for the winter months. Self-care planning involves setting up your daily practices, developing short and long term goals, and establishing specific deadlines for yourself – all from a perspective of practical, compassionate self-acceptance.
A plan without action, consistency, and follow-through is worthless, yet this is often where our efforts fall short. The best follow-through formulas involve anticipation of our hurtles, pre-made strategies to overcome and/or adjust to challenges, social networks to carry us through our lowest moments, and BIG REWARDS to celebrate our successes. Together, we will develop a follow-through formula that’s just right for you!
