July 9, 2021 The journey of the self

Today’s podcast is life from LA. Dr. Schwank and Charlotte, an American student she counseled a few years back during her study abroad in Sweden, delve into essential self-improvement and self-care strategies. Together they cover themes such as  prioritizing “me” time whilst balancing family and/or couple time, co-dependence,  the cyclical relationship between healthy functioning and a healthy environment, and why we should all be our own priorities. 

Charlotte speaks from her own experience regarding the analogy of “putting your own oxygen mask on first” and how while this may  instinctively sound selfish, focussing solely on the wellbeing and goals of oneself can be incredibly rejuvenating and inspiring for others as well. Through setting boundaries and  self-affection, you can become a role model for employees, friends, and  even your partner and children! Charlotte also shares practical tips for how she was able to heal and come into her own once again, regaining control of her life-narrative after enduring relationship hardships and self-doubt.
