We've just had Valentine's Day and there's lots of talk about Self Care/Self Love.
What does it mean to you? How does it make you feel?
On our last Mindfulness Walk, we included a little meditation to tune into how we really feel about self-care and a way to let go of the guilt that sometimes comes with it.
I was also on the radio with the lovely Eco Jane on Valentine's Eve with a Love and Hearts chill Out Session with tips for relaxation and healthy nutrition and advice for a healthy heart.
My year started with some self-care imposed on me. I tripped and hurt my knee and bumped my head. I wasn't very happy, to be honest as this was not the start to the New Year I had planned but I mellowed into it and listened to my body realising that it was meant to be.
Other ways I enjoy self-care are as follows:
I regularly give myself a mini pamper session where I treat myself to a facial, pedicure and manicure. I can only find time for this on occasion on a Sunday morning but I love it when I am able.
I have a morning ritual that I need to do every day...I go into the garden and feed the birds, say good morning to the sunrise, do a bit of Taichi and positive meditation to set me up for the day......if I miss this precious time I really feel it.
I am so lucky I get to walk my doggies in the woods every day...what joy.
I connect with my therapist to deal with my own particular issues which are a constant for me and I am lucky to have a wonderful lady here in Hastings that can help me.
I am also approaching my business in a new way....a better way for me.
I went up to London to see my hairdresser...a very good friend....and we are now looking after my hair in a different way. Getting rid of the harsh chemicals and treating my hair to organic products and colours.
I treated myself by visiting Clinique in Hastings and getting a new foundation and powder......(better suited to my ageing skin). Lovely products and a very special treat for me.
What do you do for yourself?
When we're busy we put other's needs before our own and self-care often gets forgotten.
