LS Cover Art Episode 193 - Instagram Guest.jpg

Each of us have a mission, but there’s nothing that we can do if we don’t put on our own oxygen mask first.

I know, I know: the whole oxygen mask metaphor is a bit of a cliché in the self-care world, but I love it because it’s true. You might see it as an excuse to be self-centered or narcissistic, but the true gifts of life come from sharing, connection, love, and making a contribution in whatever way best serves you – and you can’t pour some of yourself into all of that if you don’t fill your own cup first!

Recorded live in LA at Neil Strauss’s Society International Biohacking Intensive, this talk on self-care rituals mirrors my own journey from extreme selfishness to extreme selflessness, and ultimately finding the balance that allows me to serve others without burning out.

I’m still in the process of figuring this all out, but I’ve come a long way over the past couple decades so I want to share what works for me – and what I’m still working on.

Are you lying in bed stressed every night? Do you rely on food, drugs, or other things outside of yourself to chill out? Want to cultivate more positive energy in your life? Feel like you’re living a purposeless life in a meaningless universe?

Then check this episode out to get a glimpse of your brain on self-care.
