Risa Williams talks with licensed social worker, podcaster and speaker, Cynthia Siadat, who shares her insights about how we can be more compassionate to ourselves and how we can listen to our bodies and check in with our "shadow selves" more often.
They discuss the significance of paying attention to your body's signals and sensations, getting in touch with our INNER SHADOW - a part of ourselves that is often hidden or neglected and how developing a relationship with and mending our inner shadow is crucial for personal growth and success. They coin a new term, "Your Cringe Self" and talk about how being kind to ourselves when we look back on past mistakes is a key part of building self-compassion.
Tools Discussed: Self esteem tools from Risa's book, The Ultimate Self-Esteem Toolkit. The Shadow Self from Carl Jung's books, Bullet Journaling and Planners.
