about
Amanda Gist

Hi, I’m Amanda. Years ago, amidst a period of severe depression in my life, I began writing.

And then I never stopped.

It began with Instagram posts and articles about my experiences with my mental health. It evolved into a weekly-ish newsletter, books, an Amazon #1 New Release, and client work.

I believe in a world where the line between life and self-care is blurred. Where the ordinary act of cooking dinner on a Tuesday night can be just as essential to self-fulfillment as a bubble bath and a cup of hot tea. This is what my 2022 project, #thisisselfcare365, is all about.

What I’m good at: listening, cooking steak, setting intentions with each new moon, bringing love to inboxes, and napping.

What I’m still working on: cooking salmon, watering my plants regularly, yoga, actually reading my To Read pile, and creating that elusive life I don’t feel a need to constantly escape from.
