Self Care

flowersHowdy Peeps!

There are so many times we push ourselves to our limits and then keep on pushing. And then we wonder why we get sick or why we're tired all the time.

Last night I was writing the word crystal. Well, I know how to spell it and I have many crystals. However, I was so tired after I wrote it I had to type it out and have spell check show me that yes, I had spelled it correctly. That's how tired I was.

The time to take care of ourselves is way before you get to that point.

There are times in your life when you may be pushing yourself a little more because of deadlines or maybe gearing up for a Marathon or Iron Man. For most of us though, this isn't the case. We just push ourselves because we think we don't have time for self care or we feel we don't deserve it.

Here are just a few ideas for self care:

  • Sit down for a few minutes with no distractions, for meditation, reflection or journaling
  • Watch the sunrise or sunset
  • Eat healthy foods & foods that are good for your body
  • Get the exercise your body is craving
  • Go to bed early
  • Be kind to yourself with your thoughts & words
  • Take a nap

One of the things that seems to be all around me is if we don't take time for ourselves, the Universe will find a way to help us. This could mean an accident or an illness or even a layoff from your place of employment. It may not be that extreme, but it could be.

Take time today for self care. Start small and get in a routine making self care a habit. Then build into longer time or several times a day. 

In the comments area below add what you do for your self care and the benefits you find from doing so. 

Angel Blessings to you.
