My dear sisters,
How many times have you promised to eat better, get more sleep, stay hydrated, walk more, do more deep breathing, write in your journal (or start one!), or do daily affirmations and then something happens.
Like life. Work, school, sickness, grocery shopping, laundry, kids’ homework help, social obligations, the car breaks down, dental appointment, the dog throws up, you fight with your boss…you know, stuff.
Yet taking the time to care for ourselves—practicing self-care—is critical. It is life-saving, emotionally fulfilling, spiritually invigorating, and mentally stimulating.
At the same time, so many of us find it challenging to embrace self-care. When we don’t take those steps to incorporate self-care into our lives, it leads us to an emotional disconnect, which in turn turns into a physical disconnect. The result is isolation, loneliness, and a separation from our sacred Feminine Divine selves.
