Self Care during Challenging Times
With the extended heat spells this summer, many of us have been feeling a drain to our system. This weekends’ cool weather is a welcome reprieve before it begins to climb again. When life presents challenges such as these intense or extreme conditions, it’s always a great idea to re-focus on Self- Care. Rather than taking an attitude of “pushing through” (which we do need to do now and again) perhaps we can create a new habit of noticing when our system is under stress and then make better choices. Sometimes these choices include backing off from all the overdoing & overextending, even if it includes leisure time activities. Summer months can often make us more social and active due to the longer days and summer vacations. While we want to enjoy and take advantage of opportunities for fun, it’s still important to check in with ourselves to make sure we are balancing those activities with quietude and self- care. By checking in with ourselves daily in our yoga practice for example in the areas of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health, we can become more aware of what areas may be needing our attention. I recently came across this self care assessment by Jenn. Feel free to check it out if you like to use these type of tools. (See attached ) or visit her website at: https://healthyhappyimpactful.com/
