Here’s How To Come Home To Yourself with Elena Lipson

Welcome beautiful shining soul. I am so happy you are here to see what the You-est® You Podcast has lined up for you. You know, so often when people think about self-care, their thoughts instantly go to luxurious bubble baths with candles and maybe a cup of tea or a glass of wine, or maybe monthly massages. Today’s fabulous guest, Elena Lipson, tells us self-care runs much deeper than that. It’s a process we all need to get on board with. You won’t want to miss her tips for self-care.


Meet Elena

Co-author of ‘{An} Unsinkable Soul: From Broken to Brilliant With Self-Care’ and upcoming book release: ‘The Six False Agreements Women Make: Rewrite Old Stories, Learn to Trust Your Intuition and Stop Living Life Based on Other People’s Limitations’.

And was a featured Self-Care Expert on the Mel Robbins TV Show in Spring of 2020. Elena is a podcast host, transformational speaker, and founder of the top-rated podcast: Divine Self-Care Meditations & Musings.


Self-Care is Health Care

After a decade of hustle, burnout, and developing an autoimmune disease, Elena dedicated herself to helping others press the pause button, tame their inner gremlins, and finally take care of themselves FIRST. Elena tells us that finding your way to self-care is like coming H.O.M.E. to yourself. This is when your Health is at stake, when you are Overwhelmed, when Motherhood weighs you down and when you are stressed out by Entrepreneurship, you need self-care the most.



Creating Self-Care Habits

We talked about the power of self-care and how it will be a new habit for most people to create. Elena shared a fantastic routine, which she calls the Magic Morning Habit, which can help you to set an empowering intention and change the course of your entire day.


Tips for Self-Care Morning Routine

[17:50] 1. Clear the cobwebs: write out anything that is in your mind or on your heart. No editing, just write. This technique was adapted from Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist’s Way

[21:16] 2. Turn on your inner pilot light: move, dance or do yoga

[22:34] 3. Ask for guidance: put your hand on your heart and ask for guidance, say thank you in advance for having a beautiful day, or use prayer.



Final Thoughts

The most important takeaway from Elena’s podcast might be that you don’t have to be sick to find self-care. She warns us not to get caught up in the self-betrayal of avoiding confrontation or living the life we think others want for you. Take time for the self-care morning routine because it is transformational. The intentional presence you are creating for yourself starts each day with the self-care you deserve. It may be simple, but showing up each day for yourself isn’t easy, but remember you are absolutely worth it.
