Today is all about you and taking care of yourself. It’s just natural to wake up each day and take care of the others in our life. From making meals, to running errands. to doing chores. It’s part of our everyday routine. But how often do you wake up thinking, what can I do for myself today?
Have you ever heard the saying, “You cannot pour from an empty cup?” Can you give to others what you do not have? Can you give energy if you do not have energy? Can you give stability if you are not stable? Can you give joy if you are not joyful?
What are you going to do for yourself today?
It’s different for everybody but for me there are two simple things that you can do to give yourself a boost. They re-energize you and they are simple.
- Drink more water: Did you know that a lack of water creates headaches, lack of focus and energy, exhaustion and it is easier to get angry over small things.
- Get some fresh air, nature, and sunshine. It seems almost impossible that a 15-minute walk in nature can recalibrate the whole mind and body. Do you live in an area with lakes, trails, and forests to explore? If so, take advantage of them.
Take time to prioritize joy in you life, not just today, but every day.
Something to Think About
Taking time for you each day, allows you to provide for those you care about every day.
Drink 60 oz. of water each day and take a walk each day.
