TMV: Episode 4 – Time Management and Self-Care – Part 2

In an age of selfies and shameless self-promotion, the idea of self-care may seem self-serving. In this episode, we unpack what self-care means and show you how it’s not about amplifying your needs but about nurturing your soul. We also continue our conversation about time-management, with a special focus on our husbands. We open by talking about why your calendar should reflect the importance of your relationship and how you can set meetings to schedule in dates, or even time to be intimate together. Another time management tip, we explore how multi-tasking and sharing tasks can lead to quality time together. Each of the hosts then open up about their self-care routines. For Jismarie, this involves waking up early, listening to Christian worship music, and reading scripture. You’ll hear how Psalms 143 nourishes Kirra and why spending time with God helps Kirstin maintain a wonderful perspective on her life. As we discuss, self-care is as much about taking the time to be with Christ as it is about doing the things that put that pep in your step. And the beautiful thing about spending time with God? It helps you reaffirm what’s important in life, which feeds into your prioritizing and time management. Near the end of the episode, we talk about the fabulous giveaways that we’ll be sending to subscribers. Tune in to hear more about how time management and self-care can lock together to add more grace to your life.
