Ep. 264: 10 Self-Care Strategies I Used to Escape the Pit of Doom

I had an experience recently that I now refer to as “the pit of doom.” In reflection, I realized that the tools I have gained from recovery have allowed me to recover from this experience in a matter of weeks, whereas, before recovery, this would have weighed on me for years. This week’s episode 264 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about the 10 self-care strategies I used to escape the pit of doom!
