How much emphasis do you put on self-care? I’m talking about yourself, not what you might recommend to others. We fall victim to many myths that trick us into putting self-care on the back burner of our lives as we frantically run here and there. Today’s guest shares what she has learned through her focus on self-care and empowerment. Join us to learn more!

Jenelle Woodlief empowers women to redefine and embrace radical self-care, sharing deeply personal experience and wisdom. As a licensed massage therapist, she practices empowering bodywork aimed at restoring balance in the body. Thai massage is an incredible modality that incorporates effective massage with movement and stretching performed on a comfy floor mat. She educates and coaches clients on simple but powerful self-care techniques, empowering them to care for their bodies at home. And she does it all! She publishes her writing, speaks her truth, teaches Thai massage to groups and couples, builds community, fights inequality, and is building a self-care revolution! Join Jenelle in learning to love and care for yourself, and in turn, others. Jenelle is powerful, dynamic, engaging, and wise. I’m happy to introduce her to you today.

Show Highlights:

  • Jenelle is intensely passionate about being an entrepreneur and a recently divorced mom; she loves to help women redefine what self-care means
  • Her personal brand of intensity is rooted in authenticity and having the courage to show up messy in the world
  • The devastation of a sudden divorce
  • Jenelle’s story of growing up in “rebel fashion,” watching emotional abuse, physical abuse, and many inconsistencies in her family
  • How she was taught that women are supposed to be passive, but she knew she didn’t fit into that mold very well
  • In middle school and high school, Jenelle had to tone herself down to fit in with other kids; she learned to be more passive to have more friends
  • As a teen, her intensity got out of control when she exploded with anger because of what went on in her family
  • How Jenelle uses her fire for good: she shows up with passionate authenticity and connection with others, she prioritizes herself in many areas of life and engages with a group of women for change to be part of the solution
  • How Jenelle recognized that she is an introvert and needs to slow down and embrace and care for herself
  • How Jenelle prioritizes sleep, makes time and space for personal quiet time, and sets buffer times between clients
  • The best advice Jenelle ever received: to focus on caring for ourselves internally, so we can care for what’s happening around us; also, to observe and detach, and not feel the need to participate when things feel nasty
  • An influential book: The Conscious Parent by Shefali Tsabary
  • How Jenelle helps others by encouraging them to tune into what “lights them up”
  • Jenelle’s parting words: “We can’t share our fire and intensity unless we’re stoking our own fire. If we sit in chaos, then we give chaos---and that doesn’t help anyone.”
