Most Women Do Too Much
Our many hats say things like,
- Caregivers for children and elderly parents.
- Home managers.
- Full-time employees.
- Taxi drivers.
- Church leaders, PTA members, and soccer coaches.
Should We Add Expert Multi-Taskers?
With so much to do, there’s little time left to do for ourselves. For many of us, a little downtime with a glass of wine or a cocktail seems like the perfect solution. Unfortunately, after a while, that glass of wine turns into two and three and a whole lot more stress than they relieve.
What if the problem isn’t alcohol? What if the problem is that we just don’t know how to practice self-care? What if, in not knowing how to take proper care of ourselves, we did the only thing we knew how to do… the same thing we see everyone else doing… the same thing we see in the media day in and day out?
And we kept doing it because it helped
Until it didn’t.
We Live with Self-Care Myths
- I have to take care of other people first.
- I don’t have time for self-care.
- Massages, shopping sprees, and other acts of self-care cost too much money.
- Self-care is anything that takes the pain and stress away.
- Self-care is a treat I have to earn.
- I know how to practice self-care.
But None of These Are Facts
- You can’t pour from an empty cup, so it’s important that you fill yours first.
- Self-care can be as simple as a few deep breaths after work, choosing the right foods at the grocery store, and saying “no” to other people’s requests.
- Massages and shopping sprees can be self-care, but so is practicing mindfulness and taking a walk in the park, and those are free.
- Self-care is learning how to feel the pain and stress without letting it break you. It’s about healing from it.
- Self-care is an obligation. Without it, you can’t give the world the gifts that only you have to give it.
- Many of us miss some of the most important parts of self-care. Those are often the parts that led us to drink in the first place.
Sober Self-Care is a must.
And it’s important to honor it.

We will start this course with a module designed to help you get a closer look at your habits, behaviours, and emotions. You will give yourself attention by learning how to pay attention to yourself.
This module covers aspects of physical self-care such as sleep, nutrition, exercise, and general hygiene.
Here we work to help you identify your feelings, learn how to forgive yourself and others, and set boundaries that will help you manage your emotional well-being.
Your spiritual self-care is at the core of stress relief. Together, we will get you closer to connecting with yourself and the world around you. YOu will be introduced to journaling, gratitude, mindfulness, and various types of meditation.
The fact that you are taking this course means that you have, at least in part, a growth mindset, but do you know what that means and how it can benefit you? In this module, you will learn more about that and other ways to practice intellectual self-care.
One of the most pressing problems we face in recovery is how to have fun. Here we learn ways we can do that without alcohol.
Through creativity, you can express emotions, learn to recover from past trauma, and overcome stressful situations. Most importantly, in this module, you will work creatively to see a hopeful future worth staying sober for. You don’t have to be able to paint a masterpiece to practice creative self-care. You just have to be willing to hold a brush.
You don’t have to have a partner to feel affectionate self-care. Rather, it can be achieved through touch in other ways as well as affirmations. You will also learn about the 5 love languages and how you can use them to give yourself affection.
Don’t forget your bonuses. Your course includes three amazing extras prepared to help you along in your self-care journey. You will get 5 recorded meditations to guide you on your spiritual self-care journey, a vision board lesson so you can create a visual representation of your future, and mid-week emails with videos to keep you motivated and on task.

Hi, I’m Jeanna
I’ve taken a difficult road but landed in a wonderful place. Today, I live free from alcohol, free from self-hatred, and free from that empty lonely feeling that used to feel like it was going to break me. With the help of a strong support system, therapy, and a lot of self-care, I have recovered from a big chunk of my past and found a purpose–one that gives meaning to the trauma I had to face.
For the first time in my life, I feel whole, and I have made it my goal to help other women do the same.
If you are ready to land in your wonderful place, join me. We can start by working together to honor your self-care in my Simply Sober Self-Care course.
Together we can beat “I need a drink” thinking.
