This month we are talking all things "Self-Care".

September is National Self-Care Awareness Month #septemberselfcarewithspoonfedtrauma

Self-care for me looks like many things. It's not just your usual taking hot showers, doing your nails, maybe getting your hair cut and colored because all of those are important to my self-care routine as well and are a part of my regular hygiene maintenance. Self-care for me usually is more related to my mental health. Am I getting enough sleep? Am I controlling my anxiety well? Am I isolating because too much of that can be a sign I am not managing things well? Am I getting too much interaction with other people because I am a person who needs a lot of alone recharge time? Am I not coping with food or shopping when dealing with my anxiety or depression? Self-care for me looks like being able to put money in my savings account every month. Am I staying emotionally and physically connected to my husband. Some, if not all, of these take work. It's easy to get overly worked and tired and just let eating healthy fall to the waste side. Or after a really long day you don't want to be intimate with your partner because you are just tired. I have actually really been focused on making sure I stay connected with my mind, body and soul and communicating my needs because I have had a lot of change in my life lately and in order to navigate that the best way I know how to, I need to be the best version of myself. In order to be the best version of myself I have to make sure all of these self-care items are in balance. I would love to know what you do to stay balanced and make sure you are making time for self-care. Drop me a comment below.
