It’s March in the year 2017 and if ever there was a time for acknowledging that we need to be gentle with ourselves it seems this is it. Self-care is having a moment, you might say, but trendy verbage aside what we all really need is a moment for self-care. For lots of folks, spinning around on this planet feels a little more uncertain than ever.
Here’s a list of things to do to distract yourself, restore energy, to nourish body and spirit in the coming week and always.
Change your view, two ways:
-take a walk around the block
-go to an exhibit
-charge your phone away from your nightstand
-Curl up with a good book, I’m reading this right now
Get a massage:
-convince a loved one to rub you
-book an appt and let the professionals do the work
Hang out with People
-invite friends over for pizza, everyone brings wine
-go to a workshop, book reading, or a movie
So with a few simple ideas I hope that you’ll take a moment to yourself this weekend. I’d also like to call attention to a community devoted to self-care
As always I would love to hear your ideas and ways.
