In today’s episode I am talking to Phylicia Noel my friend, social worker and candle maker in her business My New Flame. Phylicia stands for self-care, self-love and radical self-expression. She joins me to talk about finding creative outlets and the importance of self-care routines.
After being offered her dream job, Phylicia didn’t think life could get any better. Unfortunately, the stress began to pile up. Taking it in stride, she began to look for a way to channel her energy. Realizing she spent a lot of money on candles, she decided to try making her own. Then her job had an employee appreciation and gave her a voucher for a candle making class. It was fate – candle making had found her.
My New Flame is an affirmation. It’s about welcoming anything new into your life and accepting what God or the universe has in store for you. It’s also about connecting with yourself and others. With everything she has going on, Phylicia makes sure to make time for self-care. It is a constant juggling act, and she has found she has needed to switch up her methods. Now, she is doing more intentional yoga and watching her nutrition a little more closely.
Self-care needs to be an intentional process; it isn’t selfish to look after yourself. You are worthy too, and if you don’t make time for yourself, your body will tell you. Society places a huge burden on women to be Superwoman and to be everything to everyone. It’s about allowing yourself rest and time with your emotions.
Take the time to check in with yourself. Ask yourself what you need to be the best version of yourself. Self-love is timeless.
