Making the world a better place and helping those around us begins with change from within. And this week’s guest, Shelly Tygielski, gives us the blueprint on how to do that. Shelly is the author of the new book, Sit Down to Rise Up: How Radical Self-Care Can Change the Community. She joins host Paula Felps to talk about how each of us can create profound change in the world if we first turn inward and care for ourselves.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How each of us can become an agent for social change.
  • The power of showing up and making incremental change.
  • Why a commitment to self-care is the best way to help others.

When the pandemic began last year, traditional ways of volunteering and helping others disappeared. This week, host Paula Felps sits down with Shelly Tygielski to learn how this Florida mom and meditation teacher brought people together by creating a pandemic of her own. Shelly came up with a plan to connect people who needed help with people who were eager to give help. Her efforts went viral, kicking off what became known as Pandemic of Love — a global, grassroots, mutual aid organization that, within one year, had matched more than 1.5 million people and had allowed donors to directly give $54 million to those in need. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Where the idea to create the Pandemic of Love came from.
  • The profound benefits of helping others in your community.
  • How you can be involved in this viral movement.
