taking care of myself
I've heard the advice "take care of yourself" no less than three times in the past two days. Maybe somebody's trying to tell me something?
I've been feeling some anxiety around a few things in my life right now (including my health), and I probably haven't been taking care of myself the way that I should. In the midst of this, I'm even more grateful for having this blog as a way to remind myself of the many things I have to be thankful for. Like having a job with paid sick time, a loving family and husband, pretty tea cups, and soothing peppermint tea.
Practicing self-care is such an important part of daily life, but I sometimes forget to prioritize it. Today my self-care included resting, reading a good book, blogging, a little art journaling and watching a good show with Paul. Tomorrow it will involve gardening and a new hair cut. Sometimes the little things can make a big difference, and they can make me a much better person since they fulfill and rejuvenate me!
What types of self-care do you enjoy?
