Self-care is LIFE you all! If you are not engaging in self-care, you need to bust out your calendar right now and schedule some you time.
If self-care is foreign to you, and you're reading this thinking, “Girl, get real! I have no time to pause and do me,” think again. Find the time and make it happen! Self-care is crucial for good mental health. It creates better mommies, daddies, husbands, wives, co-workers, bosses, friends, daughters, sons, humans, and a happier, healthier you.
I absolutely love my self-care time! So snuggle on in and let's talk reading.
What does your relationship with reading look like? Mine is complicated. I love to read, but struggle with focusing. You can best compare my mind to a fast moving train headed to Chicago or a Google search with 30 tabs open. Sitting down and silencing my mind is not always a cake walk. That is why, when I do read, I make sure I am a cozy. Reading is something I “schedule” and make happen. I will find a quiet place in my house and will snuggle up with a good book.
Today I am sharing with you 4 of my favorite items (that I actually have and use) that help me get the most out of my moment of self-care.
I challenge you to schedule some “you time” this week and engage in self-care. The holidays can be a stressful time, so be sure to make your mental health a priority!
