We live in a world where “busy” is the new buzz word to answer the simple question, “How are you?”
Rarely do I ever hear, “I’m doing great.”
Mostly, what I hear is “I’m busy” or “I’m tired.”
Our society has created a condition where rest is almost looked upon as laziness. It’s important that you take time to do something special for yourself. Self-care shouldn’t be a privilege, or something you do when everything else is done, but a way of life.
This week choose one thing you can do for yourself. This can be as simple as drinking enough fluid throughout the day, taking a ten minute walk, sitting quietly in meditation, going to bed earlier, etc. Be conscious about what you choose to do. Honor your “me” time and note how you feel when you truly plug into your needs.
What is your commitment to yourself this week? How did it go?
Please leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing self-care stories.
You are worth it!
