What Does Self-Care Look Like For You?

Self-care appears to be like a tiny distinctive for every person. And what’s humorous is that my definition of self-care has improved from what I considered it Had to be, as a Mother, to anything totally unique.

And boy, did I have a Large amount to share. The task included Instagram stories, Lansing Moms Collective, Michigan Beef, and a total lot of me sharing about the holiday seasons, divorce, and skincare. I imply, self-treatment. 

With my little ones in Virginia with their Dad for Christmas, I experienced nearly a week to myself. Can you guess the selection of periods anyone stated to me, “take this time to do anything for YOU!” I could likely have acquired a aircraft ticket and flown out to Virginia to see the kids on Christmas morning if I experienced a greenback for just about every time the subject of self-care came up! Lol. On the subject of self-treatment though, a few precise examples came to mind as to what self-treatment appears like for me these times.

I thought in obtaining youngsters I would be offering existence to more little foodies in this planet. Very well guess what? My foodies at house assume popsicles are part of the a breakfast, lunch, and supper equation. Actually no other explanation is needed here. 

Costco deliveries! Effectively, not just Costco goodies. But accepting assistance when a person presents it. Like when my friend’s Catherine and Ben go to Costco, they permit me know, so I do not have to make the drive and haul with the kids OR solo. Which I value on both equally counts- especially given that I like the massive pack of Diet program Coke and the kiddos really like the mini frozen pizzas. 

I like to call this submit self-treatment that functions for me. For you, it could be time by yourself at the shopping mall, on a walk, or probably a weekend away.
