As a big advocate of Self-Love & Self-Care... Here's a few of my tips for giving back to YOU..
1) Schedule time for Yourself:
It doesn't have to be a lot of time. 15-30 minutes a day of doing something that brings you joy. Whether its reading, listening to music, doing the crossword. Mine is my quiet time with my coffee in the mornings.
2) Be Kind to Your Body:
Give back to your body! Setting aside time to give back to you body is rewarding and also necessary. Take the time to exercise, practice yoga, make a healthy meal, or schedule a massage.
3) De-Stress Daily:
It doesn't have to be long... Maybe its 15-minutes. But giving yourself a moment to de-stress at the end of your day (or anytime!) - Can make all the difference in the rest of your week. Perhaps a short meditation, taking a bath, coloring, sipping tea, going for a walk.. whatever helps you to let go and unwind.
4) Practice Saying No:
This one may sound silly, but I've found a great benefit from learning to say "No." It's OK to put yourself first at times, even if it may disappoint someone else. Does this speak to you? Give it a try!
5) Take a minute or two to say "Thank You.":
Give love and appreciation to yourself. Remind yourself of the great work that you are doing. Maybe even throw in one of my favorite mantras, also known as the Ho'oponopono Healing Process: "I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you."
