Q & A

What is one thing special you are going to do for yourself this week? I recently went through a very stress filled time in my life and the one thing that got me through is doing something special for myself everyday. In addition, I had to let go of one thing that drained me. This practice taught me to really take better care of myself and I was amazed at how little time I needed to relax to feel rejeuvenated. Here are a few suggestions that helped me:

Take out time to really enjoy a good cup of tea or coffee. No multi tasking allowed!

Sprinkle a few drops of your favorite essential oil in your shower. You will feel like you are at a spa.

Listen to your favorite music or a book on cd in the car while driving.

Take a quick bath by candle light.

Light up your favorite candle and put on some relaxing music when you are cooking and cleaning up the kitchen.

    • All great ideas, mav! I’m going to do my Holy Yoga, candles lit, music on, and then meditative prayer. Hopefully at least 4 days this week, maybe more. I need to schedule a hair cut, funny how that always makes me feel better, and I’m considering getting my nails done!

      Blessings,

    • I’m going to make an appointment for a mammogram. It’s been over a year and I like to keep up to date as best I could. I have been using my ‘me’ time to get dental work done. Now that it’s winding down, I need to check the rest of me out, like a colonoscopy, which I’m not looking forward to preparing for but need to get it done before the summer. If you don’t take care of yourself, who’s gonna do it for you?

    • If I could find 5-10 min. by myself that would be enough.  Hubby is off work for 6 weeks after his surgery, stepson still hasn’t found a job.  I have no time to myself unless I go to work early.  I did get my nails done and yesterday got my hair done, that made me feel better.
