Self-Care Slow Down
Slowing down is an art. 2020 revealed a lot to us. For many, it was jarring to slow down and pivot from a breakneck pace. For others, it was a dream come true to live in workout gear, order in food, and never leave home again. All of us have realized at some point that maintaining one’s mental health and self-care was going to be a critical element for living through a pandemic.
Even as this year ends, the need to create self-care habits is not over. You are worthy of self-care rituals.
Grab a paper and pen and jot down ten things that give you life, a sense of calm, and joy.
Is it baking?
Yoga in the backyard?
A book in bed with cookies?
A walk and a podcast?
A nightly tea ritual?
Whatever is on your list, tape that list somewhere to see it and commit to giving yourself time throughout the day where you practice your ritual.
As a health coach, I believe that self-care isn’t an event; it is a practice that is tended to and maintained.
Despite the hardships of this year, I believe that you are meant to thrive.
