In this episode, Ellen discusses the need for differentiation not only for students in the classroom but also for adults seeking health, happiness and wellbeing.
When it comes to self-care, there is not one-size-fits-all, and realising this can help us shift out of comparisonitis and perfectionism. Having a good understanding of our own personality and individual traits can help us tailor wellbeing practices to suit and make changes in our life to help us thrive. Ellen also shares her 8-step acronym for SELF-CARE, and explains why self-knowledge is so important it’s the first step.
