Self Care & Self Love In Sobriety
What does your self love practice look like? Are you chasing love and acceptance from others instead of finding love within yourself?
Self love means taking care of your needs and not sacrificing your well-being to please others. Accepting yourself first is the first step to healing.
Today, I’m talking with self love expert Aubree Nichols who has spent her entire trying to fill her insides with things on the outside only to feel unworthy, lost, and ultimately unfulfilled.
Aubree is talking diving deep into her eating disorder, her battle with addiction and why learning to love herself helped her get sober 15 years ago.
Aubree Nichols is a self love advocate and a writer for Vogue, LA magazine and The Observer. Her superpower lies in her unique ability to share vulnerably about her struggles along the way. From addiction, divorce, eating disorders, to building her empire, Aubree’s raw, real, “tell it like it is” take on her diverse life experiences never fails to connect, engage and empower audiences.
In this episode, Aubree and I discuss:
- Aubree’s recovery journey from a eating disorder and addiction
- The difference between self care and self love
- How to talk back to your inner critic/mean girl voice
- Why you need people in your life who love you, uplift you, and respect you
- The importance of gratitude and appreciation for yourself
- How love for yourself improves all of your relationships
- How past trauma shapes our lives and how to rewrite your script
- What mirror work is and how it can help you in recovery
