We asked Taneshia a few questions...
How are you practising self-care right now?
By making sure I exercise every day (even if it’s just a walk), and by making time to practice gratitude and feel the sun on my skin and grass under my feet. I have also been trying to decolonise and connect to culture as much as I can by weaving and learning language. Decolonising is healing! I’m also reminding myself that it’s okay to go slow right now.
What are you doing to stay motivated to keep moving?
I’m trying to inspire others and bring them along on the journey and that way it keeps me accountable. I can’t encourage mob to keep moving if I’m being slack myself! I also keep thinking about the satisfaction I get at the end of every run and it makes it all worth it. Every run reminds I’m much stronger than I think, and my goal is to get out for a run 4 times a week.
How are you staying connected during Iso?
Social Media yarns! But now is also a really good opportunity to learn to love your own company.
