Almost Spring Self Care

March 8, 2017 - 2:06pm

It’s so cold today.  It’s going to be even colder tomorrow.  In its final days, Winter is not leaving with dignity and its head held high.  No, Winter is pitching one final fit.

It’s March 8th and all I can think about is Spring. It is so close and yet so far away.   My current obsession prompted me to do this internet search:  Spring is the time for:

I really liked two of the search results that came up:  Spring is the time for plans and projects and Spring is the time for new beginnings.  Both sound good to me.

What will your plans and projects include? What will be your new beginning? When I think of plans, projects, and new beginnings, I think of self care. Have you been neglecting your self care?

“I don’t know what that is,” a friend of mine once said to me.  Yikes.

Self care is anything that nourishes and improves an aspect of self. There are many different aspects to self. There is your mental self, your physical self and your emotional self. There is your social self. How you think, how you look, how your body performs, and your feelings all need self care. How you view the world, your role in it, and how you interact in the world, all need self care.

Self care doesn’t always feel good. Half a bag of store bought chocolate chips cookies with a hearty red wine chaser feels good. But self care always feels right. 

Self care isn’t always easy. Sleeping in and not heading to the gym when it’s cold and dark is easy.  But again, self care feels right.

So, the final bossy days of Winter, take some time to prep for Spring. 

Think about plans and projects and new beginnings.  If you think any of that pertains to some aspect of your health, think about improving your self care.
