Remember when you were a little kid and you had caregiver's directing your day? There was intentional time put aside for "a play". For me, this came in the form of CBC Radio Two, playing in the living room, and in between my reading lesson with Grandma I would dance around in the living room to Canon in D. Why did I do it? because to me, if felt amazing.
Can you picture when the winter sun would hit the carpet at just the right spot, and you curled up like a cat and had a peaceful afternoon nap?. Remember when our Mom's would make hot chocolate for us after a long play in the January snow to warm up our insides? The chicken soup when we had a nasty cold, and the blanket fort we would construct straight out of the dryer. All of these things fuel our well being, and served a greater purpose to our mental , emotional spiritual and physical health. These anecdotes above are examples of Self Care.
As adults, we are constantly running around, making appointments , finishing tasks and cramming for deadlines; it's of no surprise to me that we manage to forget to Self Care. I have made it my personal mission to give you a frequent, if not daily reminder to care for yourself; and to help you re-discovery your own personal and unique methods of Self Care.
