I came across this list earlier on Buzzfeed
I love the fact it just asks us to spend a little time on ourselves before we hit crisis. I wish I could take my own advice. Slowly, slowly I’m changing my routine to include breathing and positivity. Todays tasks were to make candles, get the dogs back and watch Bake Off. Tick, tick and almost tick (it’s on in 10 minutes).
A lot of chronic illness comes with a spoonful of guilt. We let so many other areas of our lives slip so therefore believe we don’t deserve self care and kindness if we have cancelled a meeting or been late on an assignment. I know I’ve posted this before but it is so true: You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first.
So I’d be interested to know what you do to take care of yourself?
P.S. Today I’m grateful for:
- The garden and it’s ability to keep on growing no matter what
- Rose – In plant form, scent or lemonade.
- The crisis team who are keeping me afloat
