I promised myself at the beginning of this year that I was going to hardcore focus on my spirituality. I’ve felt so spiritually depleted for a long time and I want to be filled up with that magic again.
I cleaned and re-arranged my altar. I’ve started keeping track of the moon phases. I even started a Facebook group so that I’d have extra accountability.
February was a gigantic failure.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you that self-care is always easy. It isn’t. Often it involves breaking toxic patterns, overcoming blockages, and making yourself do things that you might not want to do but that feel SO FREAKING GOOD when you do them.
So that’s where I’m at going into March. Trying to move through this resistance and embrace a deep spiritual practice.
Here are some ideas for your Spring Self-Care!
What about you? What’s your self-care plan?
I want you to take a step back, and give yourself a little checkup by checking in.
Try to greet each day this month with this question:
How can I practice self care today?
And then do that thing.
The first of every month is a great time to create an intention for the next 31 days of taking care of yourself.
How is your body feeling right now?
Analyze what your body needs right now to function better. A hot bath, massage, rest, exercise, stretches, yoga, good food? Check-in with your physical needs and then take a few moments today to take care of them.
How can you support your body for the rest of the month as well?
What’s upsetting you?
Don’t avoid those things that are getting under your skin. If something is bothering you, give it your attention – deal with it. Come up with a plan to take care of what’s worrying you.
How can you more deeply connect with yourself?
Spend time with yourself doing something that you love.
Take the time to answer these questions and adjust yourself accordingly. Taking care of yourself emotionally, mentally, and physically, is what life is all about. Don’t neglect yourself. Love yourself.
