Interview 1

Today’s post is an interview with personal life coach Alisha Garrett, the creator of The Self Renewal Toolkit, a super bundle, about self-care and finding your renewal. In this article she shares with us her own self-care journey, the juicy details of her new course + much more. Let’s dive right in!

What was the biggest motivator for you in creating The Self Renewal Toolkit?

“Years ago, I found myself in a vicious cycle. I spent day after day taking care of my family, many responsibilities and a very demanding job, all in effort to make sure that everyone was fully satisfied, smiling and completely taken care of. 

The constant problem that I ran into is that I wasn’t feeling very taken care of in return! It seemed like everyone was reaping the benefits of my care, except for me! I came to a place of complete and utter burnout and I felt completely awful and empty inside.

I realized that putting myself on the back burner just wasn’t going to cut it anymore, if I wanted to live a healthy, happy life.

So I committed to making myself the priority that I deserved to be and I also vowed to create something that would help others do the same, but with less challenges than what I had faced from not having a blueprint or a complete understanding of self-care.”

Do you still ever find yourself not getting enough self-care? If so, what do you do about it?

“Yes, I definitely do find myself not getting as much self-care as I would like from time to time because life happens to all of us. For me, I find that it usually occurs when something unexpected pops up or when something requires more from me than I had expected.

When this happens I typically make sure that I am getting a “me break” in there somewhere. And since these unexpected situations may also involve me cutting my me time a lot shorter than expected, then I definitely make sure that I make up for it on another day because I value my self-care and my me time.”

What do you feel is one of the biggest misconceptions about self-renewal or self-care?

“I feel that one of the biggest misconceptions about self-care and self-renewal is that it is reserved for emergency situations, situations of burnout or when stress becomes overwhelming and just too much to bare.

Instead, healthy self-care should be an intentional way of living and integrated into our day-to-day routines because it’s essential to overall well-being for us all.”

What does your daily self-care include?

“My daily self-care varies from day to day, depending on my workload or scheduled activities. I usually try to include time for meditation in the mornings, along with a short walk outdoors.

My afternoon self-care usually includes up to thirty minutes of exercise and a “me-break” where I do any positive activity that calls me at that moment.

Evening self-care is usually reserved for a short breather outdoors, a little wholeness journaling and a warm, soothing bath to relax me before bedtime.

My weekend self-care usually involves more of a celebration vibe.

For me, each day may look completely different self-care wise because I like to keep exploring who I am and what I like to do. The most important thing for me when it comes to my self-care is that I definitely make time for it, no ifs, ands or buts.”

So what is currently your favorite self-renewal activity?

“I absolutely love to treat myself to a warm bath which includes a sensually stimulating body scrub or bath salt. I’ve actually included several calming bath salt recipes that you can easily make on your own, in The Self-Renewal Toolkit.”

What do you feel is one of the most awesome things about the course that’s included in The Self Renewal Toolkit?

“Implementing a self-care routine can be difficult for some people at first because most of us are often worried about taking care of everyone else before we have even considered taking care of our own selves.

The Self Renewal course rocks because it shows you how to easily make yourself a priority on a consistent basis, in a way that’s laid back. There are many tools that are included (thus it being a toolkit) that I have created to help you reach self-care success in a very natural way and keep that going easily.”

So I committed to making myself the priority that I deserved to be and I also vowed to create something that would help others do the same, but with less challenges than what I had faced from not having a blueprint or a complete understanding of self-care.”

Today’s society can be a very fast-paced one. What would you tell anyone who’s currently living a very demanding life, but can’t always fit vigorous self-care in?

“Self-care can happen in as little as fifteen minutes. It can also be squeezed in as “wind down time” (one of my favorite times for self-care).

People living very demanding lives can also create a “not to do list” that allows them to be creative in finding that me time. The course actually covers this as well.”

What does self care mean to you?

“To me, self-care means listening to the messages of my body, my heart and my mind, and then doing something positive or creative about those messages.”

What does your daily self-care include?

“My daily self-care varies from day to day, depending on my workload or scheduled activities. I usually try to include time for meditation in the mornings, along with a short walk outdoors.

My afternoon self-care usually includes up to thirty minutes of exercise and a “me-break” where I do any positive activity that calls me at that moment.

If you could wrap up in one sentence the greatest benefit of this course and toolkit, what would it be?

“Wow, that’s a really hard one for me because I feel that the bundle has so many benefits. The Self Renewal Toolkit undoubtedly teaches people how to create a more fulfilled life for themselves through self-care knowledge, fun pampering ideas and even unique, healing meditations.”

So I committed to making myself the priority that I deserved to be and I also vowed to create something that would help others do the same, but with less challenges than what I had faced from not having a blueprint or a complete understanding of self-care.”

What do you feel is the number one obstacle that people face when attempting to implement a new self-care strategy?

“From my experience, the number one obstacle that people face when attempting to implement a new self-care strategy is actually not knowing where to start or if they are doing it right.

Self-care is going to look and feel completely different to each and every person because it’s a very individualized and sacred practice. Some people may like to be active, while others may enjoy alone time with a book for example. Everyone will have their own interpretation or version of self-care”

You say that to find your renewal, you have to “listen to your life.” How do we do that?

“You can listen to your life by following your joy and by paying close attention to what makes you feel light and carefree, then make time to do even more of those things!”

What does your daily self-care include?

“My daily self-care varies from day to day, depending on my workload or scheduled activities. I usually try to include time for meditation in the mornings, along with a short walk outdoors.

My afternoon self-care usually includes up to thirty minutes of exercise and a “me-break” where I do any positive activity that calls me at that moment.

“I absolutely love to treat myself to a warm bath which includes a sensually stimulating body scrub or bath salt. I’ve actually included several calming bath salt recipes that you can easily make on your own, in The Self-Renewal Toolkit.”

In your course, you talk about getting enough sleep and enough rest. Do you have a specific sleep ritual?

“I don’t have a specific sleep ritual per say, however, I do enjoy winding down and preparing for bed time each night.

I usually treat myself to a little hand and foot reflexology, which is actually quite an amazing therapy method. It’s also extremely safe, simple and effective. The technique consists of firmly rubbing the hands or feet at particular pressure points.

I also like to use a calming pillow spray to help me fall asleep faster, so I can make the most of my rest time.”

What do you feel is one of the most awesome things about the course that’s included in The Self Renewal Toolkit?

“Implementing a self-care routine can be difficult for some people at first because most of us are often worried about taking care of everyone else before we have even considered taking care of our own selves.
