NAPO Stand Out Podcast
Permission Granted: Self-Care Strategies for a Healthy Business

Episode 77 of the NAPO Stand Out Podcast features Katie McDonald, a Self-Care Strategist and Founder of b.nourished, a holistic coaching program for executives. By viewing self-care as a key to success rather than an obstacle, Katie has curated proven practices through decades of self-study, speaking, and concierge coaching engagements. Katie and b.nourished are a testament to how, with intentionality and mindfulness, peace-of-mind and productivity can actually go hand in hand.

In this episode, Katie explains why self-care is a smart, effective business strategy, and speaks about how slowing down is a powerful tool for getting things done. Tune into this episode to learn about what “revenge bedtime procrastination” is and the difference between being self-involved and self-evolved!

Key Takeaways: 
  • How and why people are terrified of having nothing to do and being alone in their own thoughts.
  • Exploring why we need to repair the relationships we have with ourselves.
  • Why people are good at saying yes, and bad at saying no, and until the basics are in place, the answer to everything else should be no.
  • The importance of checking in with your future self, or “paying yourself forward”.
  • The implications of context and adjusting one’s self-care routine for the specific season or situation.
  • The importance of knowing what you want or who you want to be so your life is intentional and not just reactive.
