At the time of this recording, we’re officially halfway through calving season, and at the tail end of the school year, so alllllll the things are going on! It’s also been one year since my dad passed away, and in all honesty, I am TIRED. Yeah…you could say I’m feeling kind of ‘meh’ about life right now. I know we all experience busy, chaotic, and quite frankly, draining times like these, so I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to share some simple ways of how I’m still prioritizing myself along the way.

I don’t want you to ever think the content I share here is just me ‘talking the talk’ – I promise, I’m ‘walking the walk’ too! In today’s episode, I talk about 3 things I’m doing to take care of me on a regular basis. Over the last year, I’ve been spending time in sessions with Jada Dobesh, who specializes in women’s healing. While this work has helped me tremendously (especially as I continue to work through and process grief from losing my dad), it’s also incredibly HARD. I’m also discussing my relationship with running (and how that’s changed over the years), why spending daily time listening to the Bible is an enjoyable part of my routine, and more.

Maybe you have a lot of fun and exciting events happening in your life right now, or maybe you’re falling more on the exhausted and overwhelmed side like I am. No matter where you are, I want you to remember that we’re all HUMAN, and it’s important to find simple, everyday things that can help you prioritize yourself and your well-being along the way. After all, good movement, communication, and health and wellness are not a destination, friend; we’re all just learning and adjusting along the way!

In this episode, 3 Things I’m Doing to Take Care of Me, we cover:

  • My experience with regular healing sessions over the last year + what I’ve learned about myself during this process
  • My relationship with running + how the ‘inner work’ I’ve done recently has shown me just how much it’s impacting my mental and emotional well-being
  • How I’m spending regular time in the Word and making this an important part of my morning routine

More about the Good Movement Draws Good Movement podcast:

In stockmanship (the art and science of handling cattle in a safe, effective, low-stress manner), we have this phrase . . . good movement draws good movement. 

It’s this thing that happens when we ask a small group of cattle, maybe a cow, or a pair to move out in a certain direction and their movement draws the whole herd into moving in the same direction.

Good movement happens when we approach the cattle with a positive attitude, read and really listen to what they’re telling us, and communicate accordingly. 

We don’t approach the aware, flighty cattle the same as we do the tame, docile cattle. We adjust ourselves, our energy, and approach, and communicate with each differently.

These adjustments help us effectively draw good movement from each, which then draws good movement from the herd. But it starts with us.

The same is true for humans. Good movement starts with us.

Welcome to Good Movement Draws Good Movement, the podcast where farmers, ranchers, and rural folks can grow relationally through awareness, understanding, and effective communication.

Hey, it’s me – T. I’m your host, and I, along with my guests, will be covering topics related to drawing good movement – things like self and social awareness, brain science, positive psychology, extending grace, and so much more. 

We’ll share tools that can help you understand why you are the way you are, why others are the way they are, and how you can use that to step out of self-told lies with grace and compassion to draw good movement in conversations, relationships, and life in rural America. 

Tune in every Tuesday and make sure to hit subscribe so you never miss an episode! Let’s go draw good movement!
