Taking Care of Myself
I’m so grateful for my healthy body, but lately I have a lousy way of showing it. My day job is busy and Alegna Soap® is growing. Managing my limited amount of time has caused me to make some poor food choices and skip my usual exercise routine. I haven’t been taking care of myself
I was speaking with a co-worker about her issue with her siblings and the care of their dad. She said she was sick of hearing that they were busy and had very little time to help her. That you make time for what is important to you and her dad was clearly not important to them. This is so true. When my son and his wife wanted to go away I quickly cleared my schedule to watch my grandson for 2 days.
Why is that so hard to apply to my self care? I say I’ll take that yoga class tomorrow and when tomorrow comes, there is another thing I have to do so I skip it again. I say I’ll do some meal prep next week, I can’t get to it now. And I end up grabbing something not too nutritious to eat.
I’m grateful for my healthy body and I don’t want to take advantage of it. I turned 60 this year and I don’t bounce back as easily as I did when I was younger. I’m trying to make some changes, I told my mom and sisters that we are all prepping meals during our weekly Saturday afternoon visits. I decided to take a short walk outside after eating my lunch at my day job. These are good ideas but not enough. Does anyone have any other tips for me? How can I remember to put my health first and take care of myself? I know what I need to do, I just can’t seem to do it. I’d really be grateful for some tips.
What are you grateful for this week?
Yours in Gratitude,
