Show Notes Chapter Markers

A common challenge for caregivers is the tendency to put others first and continue to neglect their own self-care even after the official caregiving is done. This week, episode 155 of the Positively Living Podcast is about music as self-care for caregivers!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Dawn Renee shares her discoveries and perspective on being a caregiver and why self-care is not only crucial, it is a birthright. Dawn also shares how we can use music as not only a self-care practice but to heal. 

Dawn and I cover the following topics:

  • Why an energy doula is so much more than what they are often referred to as a death doula.
  • How self-care and caregiving is really about tending to our energy.
  • The different levels of caregiving and how it all begins with ourselves. 
  • The negative effects of not practicing self-care even in the most basic sense of the term. 
  • First steps towards embracing sound therapy via music as a way to bring back our energy. 

Just because you are caring for someone else does not mean you should stop caring for you. Self-care is not selfish.
