Episode 123: Melanie Dale

It’s that time again for another crossover episode with my friend, Melanie Dale. I just love getting to sit down with her and talk about life. Each month we pick a topic and have a conversation about it. Then, you get to listen to one part here on Surviving Sarah and another part over on Melanie’s podcast called Lighten Up with Melanie Dale. So don’t forget to head over to her podcast and listen to the other half.

With spring having sprung—at least for the south—we thought it would be a good time to talk about personal growth and self-care. In this part of the conversation, we talk about how we are doing on personal growth goals that we set in January, how we incorporate self-care into our week, what it looks like when we don’t take care of ourselves and how we can learn to pay attention to our bodies and minds so that we don’t crash.

Takeaways From Our Conversation:

  • What has Melanie been working on this year: yoga, prayer, mentorship

  • What has Sarah been working on this year: being strong, healthy and active

  • Melanie clumps her schedule. She puts like things together on the same day which helps her be more productive.

  • Sarah has been working on scheduling. Carving out one day a week for nothing but productivity. And doing something at least once a week that is for her. What is something life giving that you could incorporate into your week?

  • What does it look like when you neglect to care for yourself?

  • What is a cue that you could look for that let's you know you're about to crash?

  • Intermittent Phone Fasting - What could that look like for you?

Here is a recent one from "Tricia865". She said, “I have loved every episode I’ve listened to so far. I feel like sarah is always talking to incredibly relevant, intelligent and awesome people with very relevant and helpful topics. There really is something for everyone here. I’m so addicted that I’ve started going back in time and listening to all the old ones.”
