Everything I know about self-care, I’ve learned the hard way. Still am.
Sometimes, it’s hard to reconcile that taking care of yourself is an act of love for others. Yet, it’s true.
As a mother, I cannot give my son the attention and security he deserves if I don’t take care of my own body and mind.
As a wife, I cannot give my husband the energy and focus he desires, if I’m not healthy and alert.
And on it goes…right?
Plus, self-care is a hot topic because it’s a hot seller.
Truth is, the best actions to take for yourself don’t cost money and actually help you to make time. Seriously.
I unwittingly became a drum-beater for self-care and today I’m sharing the single most important self-care tip:
You looking down at your phone.
You slouching at your desk.
Yeah, you, in the shirt.
Stop a moment and breathe.
I cannot overstate the importance of oxygen to your brain and the positive impact of filling your lungs (and your blood) with air.
Take a minute. Yes…a whole minute, and breathe my friend.
Do it again later. And tomorrow too.
If you need help, go to Chrome and type breathing exercise in Google -> one minute pops right up. Pretty neat.Yeah, you, in the shirt. Stop. Stop a moment and breathe. Self-care and #LoveBlog2020 Click To Tweet
