A Deep Dive into Self-Care and Being Present

Girlboss

From Humble Beginnings to a Life-Changing Wake-Up Call

In a world that often feels like it’s spinning too fast, finding perspective can be a challenge. This is a reality that Maria Menounos, an Emmy Award-winning journalist, actress, and host of the Better Together podcast, knows all too well. In a candid conversation with Sophia Amoruso at the Girlboss Rally, Maria shared her journey of self-discovery, the importance of self-care, and how a major health scare shifted her perspective on life and work.

The Importance of Being a Human Being, Not a Human Doing

Maria’s health scare was a wake-up call, a stark reminder that we are not invincible. She realized that the constant state of ‘doing’ was not sustainable. We are human beings, not human doings, she emphasized. This realization led her to shift her focus from being a workaholic to becoming a human being again, finding joy in hobbies and simple pleasures of life.

Self-Care: A Non-Negotiable Aspect of Life

One of the key takeaways from Maria’s journey is the importance of self-care. She stressed the need to invest time in activities that bring joy and fulfillment. Whether it’s playing the guitar, walking barefoot on the grass, or simply taking a moment to breathe, these activities can serve as a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of life.

The Power of Presence and Giving Back

Maria also highlighted the importance of being present in every moment. In the face of a life-threatening illness, she realized that accolades, awards, and material possessions didn’t matter. What truly mattered was the positive impact she had on people, the relationships she nurtured, and the moments of genuine connection.

Afterbuzz TV: A Platform for Aspiring Hosts

In addition to her personal journey, Maria also discussed her work with Afterbuzz TV, a digital broadcast network she co-founded. The network serves as a platform for aspiring hosts, providing them with a nurturing environment to grow and learn. Maria takes pride in the diversity of the network, which welcomes individuals of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds.

The Power of Perspective

Maria’s conversation with Sophia Amoruso is a powerful reminder of the importance of perspective. It’s a call to action for all of us to slow down, take care of ourselves, and focus on what truly matters. As Maria puts it, “What really matters is being present with your friends, with your family, with whatever you’re doing. What matters is how much you give back.”

In a world that often pushes us to do more, be more, and achieve more, Maria Menounos’s story is a testament to the power of perspective. It’s a reminder that sometimes, the most important thing we can do is to simply be.
