The Value in Self-Care

Lately I have been really trying to keep up with my level of self-care.   I was having a conversation with a friend, who told me that I really need to try to do more of it (or do it at all because I don’t).  I thought about it and she is right, I don’t really do a lot for myself, and I should definitely start.

I started by making a list of some things that I wouldn’t mind trying.  I came up with a few things:

  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Reading
  • Working out

I think if I try to do a few of these things as much as possible in a week, it could lead to a healthier mind, body and spirit.  I feel like I have carried a lot of stress and negativity in my space these days; for one reason or another, and it’s time to let go of it.  I also feel that all the stress and negativity is why my body feels like a pretzel most days.  I guess we shall see how this works out for the next couple of weeks.

Here’s to taking care of one’s self!
