Just recently I have deeply emerged in planning our wellness event coming this August. I found myself looking back over the past two months and it was a blur. A really stressful blur.
I hadn’t been journaling my experiences. I left out my morning meditation. And when I finally landed at home I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome!
How did that happen? I’m a fairly balanced person and understand the value of self- care.
I then realized on a relaxing car ride with my husband,that just because you know what to do to take care of yourself, doesn’t mean you choose to do it.
So this week I decided to celebrate the freedom I value so much. I found myself unplugging from all devices, being with friends, sitting in nature and taking a ride through the countryside.
This expression of freedom and being carefree is a practice and I’ve now learned even amongst the hustle and bustle of work, family and other obligations…I have to remember to feel the breeze and be free a little more. More than just every month or when you …
Here’s some suggestion for being childlike to ensure you practice self-care. I encourage you to Elevate You to take some time to play, to recharge and be free:
- Look for unique rocks in a cool water stream
- Set up a hopscotch board with chalk
- Jump in a puddle of water with both feet
- DIY arts and crafts projects – Get some childlike inspiration from Pinterest boards
- What did you love to do as a child for fun? Can you re-create that now?
