Doing the most (for the purpose of this episode) is when a Black woman does WAY more than required or gives WAY more (energy) than she has to give to people, places, or things.
… either way she’s doing too much, and in today’s episode Shirl and Natty are saying, “you don’t have to do that sis.” But to be sure you’re NOT doing the most, you need others in your in your corner who hold you accountable.
Today’s conversation is going to support you in being sure you’re surrounded by people who care enough about your well-being to say, “sis you’re doing too much“ and not just say it, but also support you in NOT doing the most.
A few things that came up in today’s discussion:
– The importance of holding yourself accountable for how YOU treat YOU
– How your feelings, emotions, gut and past experiences hold you accountable
when you’re doing the most
– The difference between people in your circle and people in your corner
– Why you need community to support you in holding yourself accountable

Cultivate a daily practice of nurturing yourself with Nurture Yourself Bingo
Nurturing yourself does not have to be difficult, but it does need to be consistent, so why not make it fun. Nurture Yourself Bingo is divided into five categories – one category per card. Each category has twenty-four activities to support you in a daily practice of nurturing yourself. All you need to do to get started is print the cards, laminate them, and start nurturing yourself.
Do one activity daily, marking a X in the squares as you go until you get bingo. Once you get bingo, do something to celebrate yourself. If you get bingo on more than one card at the same time, up the celebration. Alternatively, you can work on one card at a time and/or do more than one activity a day. It’s your practice, do what feels right for you. Whatever you decide, we’ve got FIVE CATEGORIES & 124 WAYS for you to do it.
