I have been unnaturally tired for the last couple of weeks and I endured a headache yesterday. It made for a long day.
As my workday ended, I decided that Wellness Wednesday would be the theme of the evening. So I stopped for a walk on the way home and savored the fresh air, stopping occasionally to touch the bark on a tree or to examine the light hitting a shallow stream.
My house needs a good cleaning, my closet is in shambles, the trash needs to go out and the list goes on and on. Fortunately, these things can wait a while so I fed Scout and went to bed.
Warm pjs, soft pillows and a purring kitty cat are my idea of self care. Here’s hoping today is better.
Sometimes self care is candles and a bubble bath. Sometimes it’s doing the work you have been putting off. Sometimes self care is drinking the water and eating the vegetables. Sometimes it is surrendering to the demands of your body and just going to bed.
Learn to listen to your body and learn to know the difference. Understanding what you need is a true skill and one we all should master.
