Early birds, night owls, and soul care containers

early bird
I've always looked at my ability to wake up without an alarm as a superpower: whether it's for my usual wake-up time (ungodly early) or from a power nap or just in time for my stop on a bus or train commute (truly, the gods watched over me when I used to take the Red Line into Chicago for culinary school!), I wake up without an alarm. Imagine my dismay when I recently heard someone say that thi...

SOUL food | Unique

This is the third post in the SOUL food series—you can find the first one at SOUL food | Seasonal and the second at SOUL food | Organic.

In my workshops, I often like to explain my work using stories, which seem to make more sense than a lot of theory and explanation, so for the rest of this month, it's story time!

In a post from February (Are you cancelable?), I wrote about how we often let our self-care appointments slide off our calendar: those things—some big, some small—that we tend to think are less important than other people's demands on our time are the first to be cancelled, postponed, or just simply forgotten.
