Happy Tuesday. I received tons of messages thanking me for my self-care regime infograhic yesterday.…
Happy Monday! I am thrilled to share my latest SELF-CARE Infographic with you! My prescription is 30-60 minutes a day of self-care activities.
This is all part of my new talk coming out in 2020 called The Diamond Edge: How To Get What You Want While Giving Yourself What You Need
If you enjoy it, please feel free to share it with someone who needs the reminder to care for themselves.
Have a wonderful Monday, and an early Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!
Good Day. I want to first start off by saying that I hope you are staying safe and well. These times are extremely challenging.
I have been reading some great articles lately (hey, we’ve got nothing but time). I am also taking an online Yale course too – you know, the ‘nothing but time,’ blessing, right? But back to the articles I have been reading. They speak to point that if you don’t take this COVID-19 time to:
Learn a new language
Marie Kondo your space
Work on your side hustle
Learn how to meditate
Create a new craft
Grow a vegetable garden
then you’re not using your time wisely.
I call bullshit (and I’m in the space of self-improvement and wellness).
urning 45 in quarantine has given me lots of time for introspection.
So here goes! In honor of turning 35 45 (ahem), what I’ve learned in quarantine and beyond:
Beauty, money, power– things we often place high value upon in society are worthless without your health. Haven’t we all learned this?
I’ve learned I can grieve and be grateful at the same time. And wow, how interesting and odd that is.
I’ve learned that when things feel out of control, to focus on what you CAN control. It’s empowering when you can switch the inner-dialogue from victim to driver of the bus.
There’s a lot out of our control right now.
There’s a lot we don’t have any say in, or ability to change. This can be stressful. It can be anxiety-provoking. I hear you. I definitely FEEL you.
But the key to managing this difficult period, is to focus on what you CAN control:

Creating Your Self-Care Regime
This poem has been said to have been written by Maya Angelou, but it is written by none other than the brilliant Pamela Redmond, New York Times-bestselling author of more than 20 books of fiction and nonfiction, including the show that I am binge watching right now, Younger. It’s an honor to have her personally share her poem on EricaDiamond.com today in honor of International Women’s Day.
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
On International Women’s Month and International Women’s Day on March 8, being a woman to me means being brave, and being vulnerable. There is strength in showing when you’re hurting or feeling something deeply- because it means you’re open to change. It means you’re evolving. It means that you’re not sliding it under the rug and then one day, erupt.
Being a women to me means being courageous. It doesn’t mean that I won’t fall, but I damn well will dust myself off and get back up. It means resilience personified.
Being a woman to me means caring for my loved ones, but caring for myself too. Women are good at nurturing, but not so good at self-care.
Being a woman means I can be powerful and kind at the same time.
