The Idea of the Week
Check out the blog for today’s post on Why Having a Regular Self Check-In is Your Secret to Self-Care (a 7-minute read). We’ll also systematically break down step by step how to incorporate a self-check-in into your routine.
In a world that often glorifies busy schedules, self-check-ins are a reminder that self-care does not need to be grand or time-consuming. This small yet powerful practice allows you to catch any negative thought patterns, assess your needs, and make choices that prioritize your well-being. With regular check-ins, you’re nurturing a healthy relationship with yourself, which in turn positively influences your relationships with others.
Practice of the Week
Dr. Ko from Reset Ketamine (2-minute video) offers a portable tool for when you need to HALT and check in with yourself. HALT is a mnemonic for Hungry, Angry, Lonely, and Tired or Thirsty. When we are in these states, such as when we’re hungry, we are not able to be the best possible version of ourselves.
- Am I Hungry? Have a snack or prepare a meal.
- Am I Angry? Ask yourself, “What is making me angry? Where do I feel it in my body?” Try doing one of these 10 Physical Activities (a 7-minute read) to channel your energy.
- Am I Lonely? You may want to call and connect with friends, family, your loved ones, or someone you trust.
- Am I Tired or Thirsty? Protect your sleep routine (a 5-minute read) and find ways to rejuvenate yourself (a 5-minute read). And as always, stay hydrated.

Join Tati, back by popular demand, for her next series of Family Constellations and Sharing of Ancestral Knowledge Workshops!
Tati owns a healing and psychotherapy practice working with sacred plant medicine, ancestral healing, and art therapy in her home in Ecuador.
In April, Tati visited the U.S. for the first time to hold workshops and healing sessions in Erieville and Fayetteville, NY, all of which had such a positive reception that people requested more! Join Tati for her return in October and the next series of workshops and healing sessions.
Family Constellations is a type of therapeutic approach that focuses on exploring the dynamics within a person’s family system, including their relationships with parents, siblings, grandparents, and other family members, even ancestors. This versatile approach can effectively be employed to tackle a myriad of challenges, ranging from relationship difficulties and emotional blocks to unresolved traumas.
This workshop involves a group of participants who come together to explore their own family dynamics through a series of exercises and discussions led by our facilitator, Tatian Davila, a psychotherapist, healer, and seeker of ancestral knowledge. Tati will offer 2 workshops as well as individual healing. The workshops will be held at Breathing Space Studio in Erieville, NY.
The Family Constellations Workshop will be held on October 28, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Sharing of Ancestral Knowledge Workshop will be held on October 29, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
