During these hard times it’s difficult to remember to stand in your light and shine. Your presence in the world makes a difference to those around you. One way to tap into your inner light is by making sure you’re taking care of yourself. Self-care is unique to everyone. For me, self care means having a routine. I have a routine that I like to adhere to. On ideal days where I’m not rushing off to work I like to read The Daily Word. (Daily Word) I also like to draw a card from one of my oracle or Tarot decks. I also have a gratitude daily calendar (https://gratefulness.org) that provides me with inspiration. Starting the day off on the right foot with positivity is key for me. I also allow myself simple pleasures in life. One small simple pleasure that I allow myself daily is at least one cup of coffee. This helps me to feel pampered.
I also like to start my day out with movement. I have been working out at home and found much success with it. I am able to move freely without judgement at home. Gyms in the past have gone to waste because of having to travel and it’s so easy to skip the gym before or after work. The program that I do is called Team Body Project. (http://www.teambodyproject.com) After movement I like to care for my skin by showering and cleansing my face. The time spent on cleansing my face & putting on makeup helps me feel more beautiful and is another way I feel special. I’m taking the time to acknowledge myself and have positive action steps to go along with it. I hope this helps give you an idea of self-care and how a daily routine can make all the difference in the world for an individual. What are some of your selfcare routines?
Remember, it’s a beautiful world. Take a closer look. Open up your heart and trust.
