#SelfCare: Mind, Body, & Spirit.
No matter who you are, there are levels of responsibility in life that can not be ignored. Being a caregiver is one of them. It doesn’t matter if you are a man, woman, young or old there are people in our lives who depend on us to assist them to thrive and grow.
Taking care of our responsibilities aren’t always easy especially during those times we lack sleep, proper nutrition, or are fatigued. When we are feeling this way, we are not useful to anyone not even ourselves.
Personally speaking, when I am not well-rested, depression kicks in. It is hard for me to see sometimes past how I feel to be proactive enough to get things done. When I am not feeling my best, I often retreat inside myself. Because I do not want those close to me to explore my cranky vibes, I must take charge of my mind, body, and spirit.
Between January and June, I had a very consistent Self-Care Plan. I worked out four days a week. The results from being active were terrific. There were no aches and pains in my body. I stretched daily, was more flexible (hubby was indeed delighted) and I was wearing my clothes so nicely to the point I didn’t need a waist trainer. My body had a ton of energy, and I felt strong.
Since January 1, I have been determined to take better care of myself. But like many people, I have fallen off the wagon. Because I am aware of how my body feels when I am consistently active, I am ready to resume taking better care of myself. Lord knows I do not want to have a stroke or a heart attack. Both of these chronic illnesses seem to be a consistent pattern that has run rampant in my family over the past couple of years. Especially with the recent death of my Aunt, I am still in shock of her untimely passing.
