Self Care and Love: February edition
February is the month for self care and love! In November, I focus on all the people and things I’m grateful for. In December, I focus on all the wonderful products I love to give to others. January starts out the year while I focus on recovering from December and making small obtainable resolutions. February I focus on self care and love….it’s a month filled with sickness, hibernation, love/Valentine’s, and a whole lot of much needed self care.
Why am I starting my self care and love series a week late? Did you read the last sentence? Sickness! My house has been struck by the flu for my husband, my sweet boy (Who is a whole hand now!) and myself. Everyone gets the flu but I was struck by a 2 day migraine to follow and a week later I’m crawling out of bed. (2018)
Make yourself a priority
Some self care items I make and other things are simple, quick and free. Other times, I don’t need proudcts. I just need a quiet space, time and focus. The point of self care is to make the conscious effort to stop, breathe, and focus on just one small thing each day. My hope is that all of these small things will accumulate and make a big difference if not physically but mentally.
I find that just by saying to myself “You need this today. You are taking the time to give it to yourself.” is powerful. It may be something I do everyday but making the mental note to slow down and relish in it is what I want my focus on.
Each day, follow along and try to do something for yourself each day this month. Maybe it will flow over to March and become part of your lifestyle. Maybe, like me, you have plans but are knocked down. My advice is, get up when you can and take care. That’s what I’m doing! I’ll do my best and that’s all you should ask of yourself.
