monday morning - sweet self-care
Routines and habits can be powerful. Even a simple, seemingly frivolous monthly, weekly, or daily self-care ritual can become a powerful message to yourself that you are of value, you deserve care. The key is to practice regularly; make a commitment to yourself.
Which self-nurturing activity you choose to commit to is perhaps less important than the act of commitment to yourself, and the follow through, which builds self-trust, and a sense of worth. Simple things like a monthly pedi or the preparation of a daily superfood smoothie can become rituals of self love. You may be surprised by the power of a small self-care commitment over time.
What regular self-care ritual can you commit to today? When will you practice it? Mark your calendar for the rest of the year. Hold your commitment. Observe your sense of self-worth. It will grow.
P.S. For today's post I really want to honour the
beautiful Kimberly Wilson of Tranquility du Jour - her work has been instrumental in my own journey towards true self-care. Check her out. And if you're interested, you can hear my chat with Kimberly about Artful Living here.
