“If you don’t believe in yourself, who will?”-Camille Kostek
Camille showed out this week, blessing us with new ways on how to take care of our well being. And for our first female guest since Mike’s lovely mother, sister, and niece, Camille gave us some pointers that males far too often overlook. To all our female listeners, this recap might be a no brainer.
It’s ok to cry.
No, it is. Crying is a natural part of human emotion. For Camille, she told when she has to alleviate stress, she goes and has a good cry. We’re not talking about cutting up onions to force the tears out. We’re talking about the emotional Kim Kardashian type cries from the heart. According to a study done in the 1970s by Dr. William Frey, a professor of Pharmaceutics at the University of Minnesota, he “postulated that the main function of emotional tears is to help the body recover from a stressful event by excreting excess hormones and other proteins.” You hear that, Steve? It’s in science.
Take care of yourself before you take care of others.
For Camille and Mike, their careers revolve massively around inspiring others and making their fans feel good. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t be selfish. We all should be selfish when it comes to our overall health. We have to make sure we are ok before we can help others who are not. Consider taking the time to meditate. Camille uses Reiki, a spiritual art form of healing that focuses on channeling positive energy in one’s body.
Find Overall Purpose.
When Mike and Camille obtained the dreams they were striving for, they found themselves asking, “What next?” Often we might put so much heart and dedication into a goal that once we achieve it, we find ourselves asking questions of identity. That’s why it is vital to have a solid idea of who you are and what you stand for. Think about your hometown, your family, your friends, your morals, your values. Whatever you decide to embark on next, make sure you have an overall purpose in mind.
Self-growth was what this episode was all about. Thank you, Camille, once again for being such a fantastic guest.
