I was recently asked by Motherhood Through My Eyes, to participate in a “Love Yourself Movement” where I share in my own words why it is so important to love yourself everyday.
My days are hectic – filled with family, work, chores, errands, and more – so I completely understand how easy it is to forget about taking care of myself at times. One of my resolutions this year is to slow down a bit – give myself the time I need to soak in everything around me, be it with my family, friends, or the quiet times by myself. I am learning to time block, being very picky as to what makes it onto the daily calendar and ensuring I have allotted some time for ME. This is the time I “love myself” – I read, I take a breather from the daily happenings, and reconnect.
I know it may sound corny to some and to others that they don’t have the time to invest, but you really need to. The time gives me clarity, sometimes sanity, and sets the mood for the rest of the day’s adventures. Even if it is 10-15 minutes of meditation, it is something! You deserve it…
