Today’s Topic/Question: How do you take care of yourself?
Disclaimer: DO NOT comment on any grammar issues during these 30 days…I don’t grammar check when I write in my physical journal and I won’t do it here. It’s RAW here ok! Thank you.
This question is so fitting for me today. Cause the universe is really messing with my emotions. I know about the Mercury Retro, but this Mars Retro (especially in Aries)!!! FIX IT!!
But there are some rituals I do for some self care. One I did last night was go for a drive…And if you know me, you know I HATE driving. Sometimes I drive to a destination, usually a park, if not maybe just drive around until I get annoyed that I behind the wheel…LOL A park is the best destination for me though (or a water front). LOL. Sometimes I just sit and think, which usually ends in me crying, or Marco Polo-ing friends for support.
Also Another thing I like doing, is self grooming…That can be from anything, like doing my hair, doing my makeup (This is probably #1), also maybe waxing my legs, or doing my Brazilian. Matter fact need to wax my legs soon!!! HA!
Another thing I like to do is work out. I feel like that’s a given though for a lot of us. I know a lot of people work out to relieve stress, but I work out because I don’t want a big stomach!! The stress reliever part is just an added bonus! LOL So i’ll take it.
Lastly, Meditation is also a BIG part of my life!! Lighting my incense and/or candles and just sitting down and clearing my mind completely. When it comes to meditation I can completely zone out, and not hear ANY noise. Like, I have to set an obnoxious alarm to snap me out of it.
Also, I could obviously say journaling, but I think that pretty obvious!
I think when I think of taking care of myself, I think of doing things to either release emotions or Keep you mind from wondering. It’s gets very difficult to do self care, because life can get in the way and you get distracted. But you gotta take those moments. Even if it is for 30 mins a day or every other day. Shoot sometimes you need it multiple times a day…TAKE IT! Some days, weeks, months will be worse than others.
What are some ways you guys take care of yourselves?
Day Ten DOWN!!
