treat yo'self...a message about self-care

March 10, 2017

 

Today more than ever, I think the words self-care are sprinkled throughout magazines, books, articles, and end-of-yoga class speeches.  I LOVE THIS.  I love that this world is realizing we need to slow down, assess our needs, and get those needs met.  I believe that if we can assess our own needs and take the reigns in our own lives, we are best equipped to be there for others.  Self-care allows me to tell my body and mind an enormous THANK YOU for showing up for me.  

 

I don't want to lecture you on why you should slow the heck down and take better care of you (but for real, take good care of you...you are a superhero).  I want to tell you that the more I incorporate self-care into my world, the more grounded and clear-headed I become.  When I feel like my needs are met, I can make more rational decisions, and I can connect to others on a soul-level.  

 

For me self-care doesn't look the same in every season of life.  Lately, self care for me looks like: diffusing essential oils, taking yoga class, bubble baths, taking the time to make coffee in my french-press and write in the mornings, and making daily gratitude and goals lists.  What does self-care look like for you?  How do you nourish and nurture yourself?  How do you give yourself a little love when life is insane?  Think about it...maybe even make a list.  I know bubble baths are my favorite gift to myself...so once a month I make a trip to Lush and pick up a bubble bar or two.  Carve out some time for YOU.  No matter how busy or chaotic or painful or stressful life gets, you deserve to slow-down, sip a cup of tea (or glass of wine), and tell yourself thanks, champ.
