Health, Midlife, Self Care

I’m Back!

cropped-img_8377.jpgWow! I’m back!

Yes, my last blog post was the beginning of 2015. I had great intentions for writing on a monthly basis but that didn’t happen.

I’m here now.

I’ve written so many posts in my head that it is about time I get it out of my head onto paper.

My intention for my posts is my own accountability with self care habits. I listen daily to what I tell my patients to do and I realize that I’m don’t do the strengthening I just told them to do everyday. I need to practice what I preach!

For most of my life, I’ve not put caring for myself first. My big wake up call was 10 years ago when I dealt with some heart issues and had to make changes. I’m grateful I’m healthier today than I’ve been most of my life.

Here is my manifesto for myself today:

I’m showing up for myself.

I’m taking responsibility for my body and mind.

I’m scheduling my self care time each day.

I’m setting timers for me to remember just to take a breathing break, drink some water, and stretch.

Let me know in the comments below how you’re creating self care time for yourself today.

Let’s do this!
