Self-care is essential! After a busy and hectic week, center yourself. Sit up in a chair, exhale, and feel supported by the chair and the floor. Close your eyes. Imagine what would calm your body, relax your mind, and nourish your soul? Taking a bubble bath? Going for a walk in nature? Meditating? Getting lost in a good book? How about taking a long, well-deserved nap? Let go of your concerns for today, even for an hour or two. You owe it to yourself.
Envision the people who helped you get to where you are today: your family, friends and neighbors that love and care for you. What are they going through? What can I do to help them? What can I offer to people outside my circle who are in need? Today is a great day to reach out to a friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Or volunteer your services at a local food-bank or soup kitchen. Doing for others is a great healer.
As you head into the coming week, consider what you want to accomplish. Focus on one important goal and make a plan to achieve it in small and manageable steps. As you consider what’s ahead take a moment to reflect on the past week. What do you want to do differently this coming week? What will make for the most productive week? Remember why you’re doing what you’re doing. Focus on your mission, what you’re working towards. Fulfilling your purpose is always satisfying,
During tough times focus on the little wins—in your life and the lives of others. Despite the pandemic changing the world this year, some good things are happening: pollution levels are dropping, and a panda is about to give birth. How about having a laugh? Take some time today, to let the sun in!
