Self care

This is not a great day so far. I am so ready for a nap and I hope when I wake up it is a do-over button. Many days I groan when my alarm goes off, but I still get out of bed and by the time I’m ready, I’m really ready. Well, today, I hit the snooze button not one time, but three. I went through the motions of getting ready, getting the kids to school, working out, doing laundry, etc. thinking I would at some point wake up and feel better and awake and alive. Well, it hasn’t happened yet. I really have fuzzy brain today and NEED a nap.

I have been working through the book Write for Life: Healing Body, Mind, and Spirit Through Journal Writing by Sheppard B. Kominars, PhD.  One of my tasks has been to create lists of how to care for myself Body, Mind, Spirit, and Emotions.  I am just going to share them with you here.

1. Exercise 2.Healthy food 3. Stretching foot 4. Inspecting foot/foot care 5. Occasional hair appt/manicures 6. Banana clip 7. Nap 8.Weight watching

  1. When something falls be the wayside I find it to be mind or emotional self-care. Those always find the way to the bottom of the list. What about you? What do you put at the bottom?
