Self Care might seem “selfish” at a time like this.
But, this time….this time of COVID-19 our Self-Care is the most important thing.
This can mean many different things to many different people at many different times.
For me, while at work Self-Care is:
*Donning and doffing PPE properly and in as much time as needed
*Eating only when I’m hungry. Stopping when satisfied
*Setting my alarm to drink water
*Taking deep breaths when I feel myself getting stressed
*Talking to my partner about thoughts that are running around in my head
*Getting outside for some fresh air
*Putting my earbuds in and listening to my favorite songs
At Home my Self-Care looks a little different.
*Prioritizing and Protecting my Sleep
*Planning my food and movement
*Writing my thoughts down in a journal
*Drinking 1 gallon of water
*Managing my time very intentionally
*Writing in my journal
*Meditating for 5-10 min per day
*Taking the dog for a walk
*Tech free eating
*Listening to books and podcast that move me forward toward my goals
*Hot bath before bed
*Being real and honest with my kids in those rare, still moments
I would love to hear what you do for Self-Care!
Be safe out there my friends. The world needs you.
