Show Notes

In this episode I welcome back Dai Manuel to chat about the "2% Solution" for self-care. We discuss the importance of dedicating 30 minutes daily to personal wellness through movement, meditation, and positive input.  Emphasis is placed on the power of small, consistent actions in self-improvement and mental health, while cautioning against the time lost to screen usage. The conversation also touches on the value of intuition and how stillness can help in decision-making and self-awareness.

Highlights:

  • Overview of the "2% Solution" for self-care.
  • The importance of a non-negotiable 30-minute block for self-care.
  • Breaking down the 30 minutes: 15 minutes of purposeful movement, 5 minutes of mindful meditation, and 10 minutes of positive input.
  • The significance of the inputs we give to our brain and their long-term effects.
  • Tapping into intuition and its benefits for mental health.
  • Dai Manuel's take on changing inputs for different life outputs.
  • How small steps can lead to larger changes in life.
  • The trap of screen time and its impact on our well-being.
  • Encouragement for listeners to start making positive changes in their routines - it is an investment in yourself and YOU ARE WORTH IT!
