Congrats on the author meetup thingy! That's really cool. If I was in Austin, I'd definitely stop by to say hey.

Great quote from Eliza here:

"Listening is hard, especially in a world that values the person being listened to over the person doing the listening.”

These are great prompts and I have been learning a great deal about Internal Family Systems and guided breathwork through an online program I began called The Whole Soul Way led by Deb Blum. I can see how this would fit well with intuitive eating. I am a committed journaler so I will add these prompts to different ones I explore each day and go even deeper into breathwork. Thank you!

Thanks for sharing your breathwork session, it sounds amazing. I wish I was closer (or even in the same country🤣) so I could go to your meet-up. Have a great time!

Kristi, I love breathwork! I've been doing it for years and have an online circle I do it with most Sunday afternoons. As well as tuning into my body, it also helps calm my monkey mind when I'm really having trouble focusing on writing. It's a game changer if you can sneak in a breathwork session before you work on your Substack posts.

And the more you often you give your parasympathetic nervous system a chance to rest and recalibrate through breathwork, the sessions build on each other. I'm so glad you tried it and wrote about it.

Hi, What a great writing challenge! I find that listening to myself becomes more and more important all the time and that is one of my favorite questions: "what do I need right now?" Sometimes, the answer is as simple take a warm shower, other times the answer is more complex.
