Self Care: How Kim balances self care and running her own wellness and coaching business

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey! I'm Kim. I am a health and mindset coach, plus an online business mentor. I love all things travel and beach vibes and if you put a good drop of wine and cheese board in front of me, we just became best friends!
I have been growing my online wellness and coaching business, Abundance Club, for 7 years, and it's been the best thing ever! I finished a post graduate degree in exercise physiology when I was 23 years old and transitioned straight into the online world of health and nutrition. I fell in love with the concept of prevention over rehabilitation, and since then I have grown a beautiful community of women follow my soulful health program and mindset coaching (plus I work with some epic wholefood nutritional supplements that compliment the program perfectly). 

I am married to my soul mate of 11 years, I have lived in Canada for 6 months and the only reason we came back to Perth so soon is its freaking COLD over there! I know right, a beach lover goes to live in a cold country that constantly snows (and we moved over in winter).... what was I thinking! It was an incredible experience though.

I am 29 years old now and I am so grateful for the experiences and opportunities I have had. I am even more grateful for the crazy and hectic challenges I have overcome, including overcoming anxiety and massive self hatred. 
My deepest passion and mission is to empower and educate women to raise their self worth, have radical self belief and move forward into alignment via my epic coaching and holistic health program.

Top 3 Instagram accounts you follow

@jess_schembri_ (she is one of my coaches and I love her content!)
@jannahmae_x (my bestie who is always posting the funniest videos!)
@fuckologyofficial (I love me a good truth bomb) 
Although I run a business through social media, I actually don't follow a whole heap of people as I just don't have the time! So I feel like there are so many amazing accounts out there with epic content that I am missing out on :P 

You and Self Care:

What does self care mean to you?

Self care is the same as self love in my opinion. This is showing up for myself first and asking myself 'what is it that I need right now'. So it can be anything from the calming yoga and relaxing activities, to listening the podcast that is going to pull my mindset out of a funk. It is staying strong with my boundaries and saying NO to people and events I actually do not want to go to.
Self care is letting go of the people pleasing, it's being ok with having a glass of wine on a tuesday night and watching my favourite TV show because i just want to switch off. Self care is committing to my 'miracle morning' routine and reading my Mission Statement. 
Self care is caring for myself first, and making sure my needs are met before I go and help others.

What is your favourite self care activity?

Healthy version = getting a facial or massage
Not so healthy version = pour a glass of wine and sit in the sun

What's your favourite way to ground yourself when you're feeling burnt out or anxious?

Get outside to sit on the grass or go down to the beach and just breathe or do a SOMA breathing meditation

In a busy world, how do you practice self care consistently?

It is a non-negotiable. It's not even about trying to fit it into my busy world. It takes priority. Caring for myself must come first so it is apart of life and as I said above, I start my day with my 'miracle morning' routine and that is all about filling up my cup and caring for my body and mindset first. 

What advice do you have for people who find it hard to practice self care

Truth Bomb Time!! I don't sugar coat things. The truth is, if it's important enough, you will make the time. Ditch the excuses and be ok with giving time to yourself. You are the most important person in your world. Put yourself first, tell yourself you are worthy enough for this self care and then action it out <3

Favourite tea for relaxing?

Ooooooooh I LOVE any tea with lemongrass in it. It just takes me to a tropical heaven! I love herbal tea blends!
