Self Soothe // today at work I had to soothe and help a child through a family trauma. I know the emotional techniques to apply and the secure containment to provide but all I wanted to actually do was hug the child tight and cry with her as that’s what makes me feel better. 
Instead i advised her tonight to go home and practice self soothing and care. She told me she was going to play with her dolls teddies and stay close to her mum. 
The whole day I have been thinking about our abilities to self soothe as adults. What do we do, who do we reach out to, do let ourselves feel it? 
I wasn’t taught self care or self soothing techniques as a child, which is probably why my teens and 20s were self destructive. Only in my years in therapy have I been taught what it means to me and how to practice. 
Self soothing is a distress tolerance technique, which helps you feel safer, securer and calmer in times of upset, trauma, threat or just a bad day. It can be practiced whenever you feel out of sorts, alone, sad or stressed. There are no real rules only that the practice is to be enjoyed and kind to yourself physically mentally and emotionally. // For me yoga is definitely one of my practices - a chance to get out of my head into my body. My second is putting on my big fluffy dressing gown and flopping into my sofa and letting the cushions make me feel secure and held in the loving warmth of my dressing gown. 
It’s been hard to practice this practice but it’s definitely a practice we need to talk about and prioritise more to the younger generation and ourselves. 
Do you have anything that soothes you?

What I didn’t remember was, we got t-boned. The car spun into the tree and shattered the windshield. I’m grateful we weren’t in my car. The engine moved 2 feet into the cab. I would not have survived.
.
I remember I couldn’t move because of the seatbelt. I thought “I’m gonna die in here.
.
My arm was dislocated. It was set by the first responders, but it didn’t have a pulse. In the hospital, I remember them repeating, ‘she doesn’t have a pulse’. That’s when my mom came in and just dropped. She must have thought they were talking about me, not my arm. .
They wouldn’t clean the blood off my face for 6 hours. They were worried it had bone fragments in it. When they stitched up my knee, I wanted to watch them do it. I figured, “Hey, I’m going to school for this.”
.
Two days after the accident, my sister drove me to school to drop my classes and try to keep my dance scholarship. We took the turn onto the freeway ramp at almost 60 miles per hour. My mom’s car flipped. I had to explain to the EMTs how all my injuries were from the first accident, not the one I was just in. I lost my scholarship and had to take a year off, in which I sued 3 insurance companies.

En oväntad lucka i schemat gör att jag kan ta igen mig i "myshörnan" i rummet för alexanderlektioner på folkhögskolan.

fick precis frågan av en av eleverna om jag blir trött av att undervisa, och det blir jag egentligen inte. det fantastiska med alexander är att ju bättre undervisningen är, desto piggare och starkare känner jag mig. jag vet att jag har haft en riktigt bra dag om det känns som om jag "inte har gjort något" utan att "det" har gjort sig själv. på motsatt sätt så vet jag att jag "gjort för mycket" om jag känner mig urlakad och sliten.
sedan kan man naturligtvis bli trött av att träffa många människor och jag kan bli väldigt trött på att prata och höra min egen röst! men det är en annan sak. :) #selfcare #alexanderteknikhjälper #alexanderteknik #alexanderteknikochsång #sång #sångteknik #självhjälp #återhämtning #förebyggande #frinacke #frinackestarkrygg #expansion #inreomställning #älskarmittjobb

So many people have been asking questions about the Strange Brew Coffee Scrub (there's a behind the scenes feature in my stories at the moment!)
so here's some info about this secret weapon that keeps my skin glowing.

Q: You can use this scrub every day!?
A: You can absolutely use it every day! The exfoliating action comes from the finely ground coffee yes, but also from the Alpha Hydroxy Acids that are in there. You don't want to grind anything into your skin, just gently rub, concentrating on dry or breakout prone areas.

Q: How do I use it?
A: Scoop about a tablespoon worth of scrub into your hand, add some water to it and apply to a moist face.
I like to let it sit for a bit, there is A LOT of good stuff in there and you want it to sink in! I usually apply it and then brush my teeth, then gently rinse away with warm water.

Q: My skin is BLAH (insert skin type here), is it ok for me to use?
A: Like ALL of our products, this stuff is beneficial to everyone with skin. My formulas are created to help balance and nourish everyone's skin- When your skin is balanced and nourished, it is healthy skin. But you should still drink plenty of water and take care if what goes into your body- there's only so much skin care can do. 
So there you go! This scrub really is amazing, featuring Wild harvested Rosehip and Chaga extracts, our signature botanical blend, vitamin C, AHA's, aloe vera and too much to list here. 
Any more questions?
