When is it best to go for a long walk and when is it best to opt for a slice of chocolate cake in front of Netflix?

Grainne O'Neill shares her wonderful mix of what she calls 'worthy' self care and Self care (exercise, an embodied meditation to help her plug into the day's energies, EFT Tapping (of course), lifting weights and a 'gratitude countdown' to end each day.

How about you? How might you give yourself more grace when you're at your best AND when you most NEED that grace and compassion?

Let us know in the comments :)


Grainne O’Neill works with people to help them fully be their authentic selves. Grainne’s interest in personal development, started a number of years ago when she became ill with Chronic Fatigue.  Her work in the corporate sector in marketing, advertising and financial services had led her to becoming burnt out.

Conventional medicine was unfortunately unable to help her so she had to look at alternative therapies to find a solution. This journey led her to a number of different therapies and eventually to where she is now. 

Originally, she trained in coaching, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), & Hypnotherapy. However, once she learnt EFT tapping therapy, it immediately became the primary tool that she used for herself and with clients, as she found it to be the most effective way of getting to the root of getting to the root of the problem, and making permanent changes.

Grainne now works as an EFT Practitioner seeing clients one to one and also as a trainer for people who want to learn tapping for their own use, or who want to become EFT practitioners. 

Her work is about getting back to the root of who you are at a soul level. 

Who you are without the fear, anger, sadness or any other negative emotion or belief that is holding you back. Clients say she helps them to clear the pathway for themselves and give them the tools to help themselves. And that when the going gets tough and difficult issues have to be tackled, she does this with a light touch and humour.

I'm an EFT International Mentor and Advanced EFT Practitioner and Grainne has been MY EFT mentor since I moved to Ireland in 2019. I cannot recommend her highly enough if you're considering training in EFT yourself.

I started The Feel Better Every Day Podcast because I realised that even with the focus of my work being self and Self care (for 20 years now!), I often struggle. And so do so many of my colleagues. We're all human! So I interviewed several of them including neuroscientists, authors writing about health and wellbeing, fitness professionals, therapists, coaches, energy workers and medical professionals.

We ALL have gaps and even gulfs between what we would LOVE to be doing for ourselves each day and what we actually do. My hope with each episode is that you'll go easier on yourself and do something rather than nothing from your own ideal self or Self care repertoire. Create a life you don't need to retreat from! Let me know how you get on! I really love hearing from y'all.
