WE ASKED SELINA + VICKI, FOUNDERS OF PROJECT LOVE, TO SHARE THEIR APPROACHES TO WELLBEING…
On a mission to inspire and empower busy women to create lives, careers and relationships that they LOVE, acclaimed coaches Selina Barker and Vicki Pavitt founded Project Love.
Project Love shows women how to cultivate love from the inside out and how to have the courage to follow their hearts. With a combined 14 years of experience behind them, their online courses and coaching programmes promote the power of sisterhood and community, empowering women to find love in all areas of their lives.
HOW DO YOU LOOK AFTER YOUR MENTAL WELLBEING?
“By booking into our schedule regular RECOVERY time and making it a top priority. We live in a fast-paced world, hooked up to a constant stream of communication and information (24/7 if we want to be!). Sometimes it might not be easy to slow down but you can ALWAYS take a time out to unplug, switch off and recover in amongst the rushing around. 10 minutes of meditation, a hot bath in the evening, an evening catching up with a friend and just getting it all off your chest, a walk in the park, an evening of no screens. This regular unplugging and focusing on recovery is key to our mental health in a fast-paced digital world and we can ALL do it.”
WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER ONE SELF-CARE TIP?
“Ask yourself every day ‘What can I do for you? What do you need right now?’ Write the question on a post-it and have it on your mirror so you see it every morning or create a phone alert that pops up at the same time every day. Self-care is all about making sure you are getting what you need to feel happy, alive and well on a daily basis. So this little daily practice gets you into the habit of listening to your needs every day. It’s a simple tool that can be life changing!”
