Discernment As Self Care

Collectively, in the last few years, it finally dawned on us that absolutely flooring it until we achieve every last one of our goals and resting only after success is not practicable. Stopping for breaks to care for ourselves is vital to a well rounded and fulfilling life, and the popularization of this concept birthed the self-care movement. Self-care is a term that has been applied to the general idea of taking a gentler and more mindful approach to your own life. Caring for yourself means establishing a morning ritual, scheduling a massage, or booking some yoga classes, especially when you feel a bad case of burnout coming on.

No place like your squad for the holidays

Year-round, women have to juggle a lot: job, house, kids, dinner, remembering to buy toilet paper, you get the idea. There is constant pressure from all sides telling us what our lives should look like, and the holiday season cranks that tiny inner critic’s voice to eleven. It’s easy to lose your footing with an additional workload of playing Santa for your household or close circle of friends. Staying grounded is always hard for me, but gets harder with the added responsibilities of gifting, potlucks, and my social calendar every December.

Gratitude Defines You

The obvious element of cultivating a sense of gratitude is not taking the good stuff in life for granted. Of course, we are thankful for the house we live in even if it’s not in the school district we wanted. We are thankful for our kids growing into responsible, successful adults. Thankful for our health, the food on our table, warm coats and good friends. Gratitude comes into the equation when you are still grateful for your house even if it is where your spouse died. Even if it burns down. Thankfulness is easy, gratitude takes practice.
