Self care, self love
You deserve to be pampered
Create a healthy you
Take care of yourself
Be gentle with yourself
All mini pep talks I wrote to myself as I drafted a list of “practices” I wanted to commit to.
Daily Practices like
pray and meditate
yoga, if only for ten minutes
moisturize with coconut oil
diffuse essential oils
And “Life” Practices like
And then I wrote myself a letter.
I love you. You need to get out of your comfort zone and just start implementing these practices into your life. Be gentle and fogiving, but also know that the moment you engage fully in one of these practices the rest will fall into place naturally.
Start with bikram yoga tomorrow. Do that, then do it again. Go get a gel manicure. Who care if your nails are jagged and short? It’s their job. It’s like not hiring a hair stylist because you think your hair is gross. That’s the point of having a hair stylist!
So go get your manicures, and stop worrying about money. You need to reset yourself no matter the cost. You are actually saving money by practicing self care. This is preventative care I tell you. This is going to keep you healthy and sane and whole. So stop worrying and start doing.
The world will fight you on this, tell you to put x,y, and z in front of yourself, but listen to your truest voice, Andrea. It will tell you what to do.
And then I felt a surge of energy and calm and health and healing.
This is by far my hippie-est post, but stay with me. Do you practice self care? Do you really think *spending* money to pamper yourself could save you money and protect your health in the long wrong?
What could you start doing tomorrow to help create your healthiest you? And what are your favorite practices?
