Self-Care ~ a Gateway to Soul Connection

Love & Free Yourself Through Self-Care.

Are You Ready?

Read “Loving Who You Are” & Learn How To:

  • Nourish yourself so you can feel grounded and balanced.
  • Establish simple self-care and keep it alive in your everyday life.
  • Release anxiety, fears, depression, and overwhelm.
  • Implement healthier choices that feel in alignment with you.
  • Feel more self-love – how to cultivate and receive it.

I used to think self-care was boring and didn’t have time for it. Creating time for self-care was something I did when I absolutely needed it, like when I was overwhelmed, or my energy depleted. I also thought that if I stayed busy and did ‘enough’, then I was worth enough. I had fun, but often experienced anxiety and depression.

I spent years not caring for myself and my constitution. But when I discovered the magic of self-care, it helped me get to know who I really was so I could release the anxiety. I learned that self-worth doesn’t come from approval or how much you accomplish. And that, through simple self-care rituals, self-worth can be built over time.

Building self-worth, through caring for myself – body, spirit, and mind – left less and less room for doubt, anxiety, and depression. And gave me more room to connect with myself and my soul.


This Is Why I Practice Self-Care and Help Others Connect With It Too. It’s Also Why I Wrote The Book, Loving Who You Are.


But I remember a time when self-care and love were not a part of my life. For nearly 15 years, I experienced chronic anxiety, depression and panic. Low self esteem, emotional pain, poor nutrition, and unhealthy relationships had become a way of life for me.

After having an emotional breakdown in my 30’s, I knew I had to do something radically different. I had to change. I began to take note of my life, slow down, and simplify it. I studied all I could about the mind-body-spirit connection and realized self-care had to become part of the deal if I was ever going to experience true change.

Over time, as I learned specific methods, I saw that when I put my self-care first, everything else fell into place.

My name is Dena Leigh Carter and I wrote “Loving Who You Are, A Self-Care Guide to Nurture Your Body, Spirit, Mind” to inspire and remind you how vital self-care is. Anxiety, fear, and self-doubt don’t have to be the norms. Loving Who You Are was born from the belief that with courage and commitment, certain self-care methods can help you build love and trust in yourself and your life. If you don’t make the time to authentically care for yourself now, when will you?
