Self Care and Love: February Edition

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 beautiful products I love to give to others. January starts 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 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! The flu has struck my house for my husband, my sweet boy (Who is a whole hand now!), and myself. Everyone gets the flu, but a 2-day migraine struck me 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 accessible. Other times, I don’t need products. I need a quiet space, time, and focus. Self-care is to make the conscious effort to stop, breathe, and focus on just one small thing each day. I hope that these small things will accumulate and make a big difference, not physically but mentally.

I find that just 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 every day but making a mental note to slow down and relish in it is what I want my focus on.

Be Present

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.

How do you show self care and love to yourself or others?
