Merry December!! I can't believe how time has flown this year. I sometimes just want to put the brakes on a bit so it doesn't seem like such a whirlwind. In my personal life, calming the winds is very important in my self care practice. If neglected I have been known to turn into, what we call in our house, Momzilla.
We all live busy lives! They are not the same kind of busy, but busy all the same. Some of us are work-a-holics, that don't ever take our vacation time and work late every day. Some us are busy with kids, living in the car as we drive them to their many different activities. Some of us are students with a heavy class schedule and a job on the side. It doesn't matter the type of busy we are. We all need to take time to unwind and relax a little.
Why is taking time to unwind and relax so important? How do we benefit from it?
There are more benefits, but just these three seal the deal for me. Yes, sometimes it is hard to make yourself find the time. But, our bodies are such a wonderful gift, why wouldn't we take time to take care of them? Some of my favorite ways to relax are so simple.
We are all here doing our best, but often times, we are trying to do too much and don't keep balance. Keeping our lives in balance helps us to function better, think clearly and feel happier. Self-care is part of that balance. I hope you take the time to find your way to unwind. As always, I would love to hear what you discover.
To your balanced health,
Next month I want to share my favorite reads and bath salt. See you then.
