The connection between Self-Care & Mental Health and 9 Simple Ways To Boost It | Dr. Gina Di Giulio | SCGP: 2

Hello Self-Care Goddesses and welcome to our second episode of the Self-Care Goddess Podcast. I’m super grateful to have interviewed the beautiful and talented Dr. Gina Di Giulio.

Dr. Gina Di Giulio is a Clinical Psychologist who obtained her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa and earned a Master’s in Law with a Health Specialization from Osgoode Hall Law School. Past professions include: Clinical Psychologist at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, Lecturer in the Undergraduate and Graduate Programs at the University of Ottawa, Adjunct Teaching Faculty at Queen’s University, and Clinical Psychologist in the Outpatient Mental Health Program at Markham Stouffville Hospital.

She has spent the past 10 years working in Corporate and Executive Mental Health and was the Director of Mental Health at Canada’s largest executive wellness clinic.  She has delivered numerous on-site training sessions, workshops, webinars on various topics related to mental wellbeing and is often called upon to consult with organizations to help them enhance the mental wellbeing of their workforce.

Currently she is the CEO and Founder of PathWell, a firm that provides comprehensive workplace mental wellness solutions, including assessment and treatment interventions, training sessions, and consultation services, to organizations across Canada.

I always knew of the important connection between Self-Care and Mental Health, but after this podcast episode I’m convinced more than ever. As women we’ve been socialized to put others first, and neglect our Self-Care, that’s why it’s so critical to reframe our thoughts and challenge any guilt around our Self-Care habits. Listen in for some great ways to incorporate Self-Care in your daily routine.

In this episode Dr. Gina and I discuss:

• Things women should do less of.

• The connection between Mental Health and Self-Care.

• Why we need to use the term Physical Distancing vs. Social Distancing.

• The type of exercise that is most beneficial for Mental Health.

• The fundamental building block for Mental Health & Wellbeing.

• The mind-body connection & its powerful importance on your Mental Health.

• 9 simple ways to prioritize Self-Care for maintaining good Mental Health.

This doesn’t mean that self-care is the cure for mental illness, but research shows many people fail to provide adequate self-care in the midst of a flare up of symptoms. I believe that learning to manage Mental Health only truly starts when you reintroduce Self-Care. Because if we’re not taking care of ourselves we are neglecting ourselves and risk neglecting our Mental Health & wellbeing.
