Thus far 2018 has been a pretty stressful one for me and sadly it doesn’t seem to be letting up any time soon. During times of stress I find that not only does my work and writing suffer, but so does my mental and physical health. I tend to not make enough time to take care of myself even though I need to more than ever.
So that is why I am making a commitment to myself to take some time for self care. I need to eat better and exercise, both of which I am working on. I am getting back into yoga. I’m going to get back into mediation. I need to socialize some more, which bi-weekly D&D games are helping with. I need to start sketching and painting for fun again. I need to read more. I know all that I need to do, now I just need to respect my health enough to do it consistently. Even just and hour or two for myself a day should make a huge difference.
Now to see if I can actually stick to a self care plan. How much time do you dedicate to yourself each day? How do you keep life from stealing that time from you? Leave you tips in the comments.
