self care

What do you choose as part of your self care regimen?
Five years ago, a colleague asked if I treated myself to massages. At that time, I hadn't ever gotten a professional massage. She looked at me and said, "This career is difficult, you should really get monthly massages." It sounded excessive, but I took time to give it some thought. What was I doing to care for myself? Later that week I signed up with Massage Envy. Since that day, I have gotten a monthly massage. It has unequivocally been a game changer in my life. It's an excellent way to let go, focus on the music and let a professional care for me for 50 minutes. We give of ourselves in many ways, but are only truly effective if we also take time for ourselves.
You are granted one mind and one body, what are you doing to take great care of each?
If not a monthly massage, please choose what fits best in your life. Exercise, a bubbly bath, a pedicure, a special cosmetic, a carry-out dish you love, a quiet evening to read...it will absolutely make a difference in your life. Enjoy!
