Over the summer, I have felt all of my insecurities come out all at once when I applied to medical school. Instead of just shoving them back down, I decided to address them all. In order to start that process, I began binge watching Carrie Rad’s self care summer series on youtube. If you don’t know who Carrie Rad is, she is a lifestyle youtuber who focuses on mindful living, intentional actions, self-care and life fulfillment. What I love about her videos is that she is so honest, transparent and real about her journey to loving herself, accepting herself and taking care of herself. She is a true inspiration and a guide through self care practice. Because of her videos, I am so much more conscious of the choices I make when talking to myself or how I act. In the video below, I share with you six ways this youtuber has helped me kickstart my self care journey to a better life.
