Self Care = Gratitude

 

I have been focused on self care this month.

Self care is about being grateful and appreciative

for yourSelf, yourself, your body and the ones you

love.  We have an easy time thanking others, but

How often do you thank yourself for all the things

you do every day?

 

I have just started to do this, and it feels pretty amazing.

I have started to love up my little girl in me, and

thank her for all her support and efforts.  I do this

by journaling back and forth – with her and I speaking
to one another.

 Here is part of an article that I found in Energy Medicine

Magazine, I wanted to share this exercise with you.

 

“Consider the following exercise for putting gratitude

into action with people close to you, whether they be

spouse, children, friends, or business partners:

•           Pick at least three people you want to

appreciate.

•           Ask yourself these questions in advance:

~ What are highlights–fun times and bonding

 times–that you’ve had together?

~ What specific qualities do you admire about

 this person?

~ What efforts by this person have helped you

 make it through difficult times?

•           Find five minutes to sincerely share the results

with the person. Ask them to do their best to

please receive and really take in your

appreciation.

This simple exercise helps us stop taking people for

granted and can effectively reawaken awareness of

the abundant gifts of life. 

 Now try it on yourself!”

I encourage you to try it with yourself FIRST.

Have fun with this, as women we are all learning

to care for ourselves more, first and always!

Take good care.

 

Love Victoria
