Needy 95: Motherhood, Connection & Self-Care with Tara Pringle Jefferson

Motherhood, Connection & Self-Care with a Needy podcast conversation with Tara Pringle Jefferson

The Needy podcast is on a much-needed hiatus as I prepare for season 4. During this time I am bringing you my very favorite episodes from the last four years, including today’s podcast episode, “Motherhood, Connection & Self-Care” with Tara Pringle Jeffereson.

Tara is a writer, speaker, and self-care coach with a lifelong passion for creating community. She’s the founder of the Self Care Suite, a wellness community for black women and other women of color to unlearn exhaustion as their default and develop self-care rituals to sustain themselves. Her work has been featured in Essence, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, The Grio, Babble, Buzzfeed, The Happy Black Woman podcast, and on Sirius XM radio. Born and raised in the Midwest, she lives in Ohio with her husband and two children.

Sharing Tara’s wisdom is such a treat, because she is one of MY favorite self-care leaders to follow. During this episode, Tara shares her personal story of creating a dynamic system of self-care for herself as a mother, wife, and entrepreneur. She describes a feeling of having lost herself beneath her many identities in a way that I think everyone listening in will be able to relate to. Tune in to hear her best practical tools for cultivating daily self-care and powerful anecdotes about turning points in her journey to caring for herself more deeply.

Tune in to hear us explore…

  • Energy management as self-care (& the cellphone battery analogy)
  • Tuning in to yourself throughout the day and permission to change your mind
  • Motherhood, boundaries, and modeling the type of life that you want your children to know is possible
  • Letting people know (and love) you, even when it’s uncomfortable

Hang with Tara…
