The Mend Yourself Well Podcast: Self-Care Practices for the Body | Mind | Soul

Jan 19, 2018

In today’s episode I am literally practicing self-care as I record this episode. I find some quiet time where I can just sit by the lake and soak up nature, and watch the ducks!


In this moment I realize how grateful I am that I can have this time, to just be in the moment. I don’t have to be anywhere else. I don’t have to do anything. I am not rushing. I can just be. I’ve waited years to JUST BE. Just be present. Just be relaxed. To just be with myself.


I share what my journey of the last two years has looked like. I share that self-care is a continuum. Sometimes we can treat ourselves to these fleeting moments of self-care, like getting our nails done, pampering ourselves to a massage, taking a walk, or just hanging out in a cafe while we sip on our coffee. The old me found these moments of self-care to be what got me through the toughest times, when I felt like I was just hanging by a thread.


The deeper I go, the further down this continuum I explore, I notice that self-care is becoming more mindful for me. That self-care is in each moment, every moment. I am experiencing, for the first time in my life, that peace, joy, happiness, and gratitude are no longer fleeting, they are here to stay. They have become a part of me, in each moment.


In this episode I encourage you to find and explore your own continuum. To honor yourself where ever you are, and to love yourself in each moment. Your journey, and your place on this self-care continuum is evolving. There is hope. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!


You deserve taking a time-out to smell the roses, to watch the ducks sunbathe, and you are worthy of love. But first, love yourself with all your might and begin to witness others sending you more grace and love as well.
