Self-Care Battery: Recharge Yours!

In the Self-Love Workbook, I talk a lot about self-care and recharging. But how do you know what and how to recharge? Let’s have a little chat about your self-care battery. Have you ever heard of the “Spoon Theory“? It’s a way to describe how people with chronic illness have a limited amount of energy. Every day they are allotted a certain number of “spoons”. Every activity costs a certain number of spoons. Getting out of bed may be two spoons, cooking breakfast is one, showering is two, doing chores is three, while going to work is four, and going out to lunch with friends is also four. For anyone who isn’t familiar with CFS (also called M.E.), Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, or other diseases that causes extreme exhaustion and fatigue – that might not seem bad. Now imagine that you only get six spoons a day? You can get out of…

Self-Care: A Moment For Yourself

Self-Care Sunday, yay! Ready for your Self-Care Assignment? Before we get started I wanted to chat with you a little about what self-care is and why I love it so much, and am encouraging you to love it as well. Self-Love is letting yourself see the beautiful light that is you. Working on your self-esteem, feeling good about who you are, loving your body the way it is. You stop the hate (or try to). You stop beating yourself up for being human, you stop hating your jiggly bits, your crooked teeth, your freckles, your weight. You love yourself the way you would your child, your spouse, or your best friend. Self-Care is what you do to foster that sense of love. Those sweet, comforting, little things you do for yourself. When you allow yourself to practice self-care on a regular basis you stop ignoring your needs, you take the…

Mirror, Mirror: A Self-Care Exercise

Today it’s cold here in Oklahoma (we might even get SNOW tomorrow) but I’m staying warm with my soft, fuzzy, green blanket and blue, green, purple, and turquoise fuzzy socks. I love soft, fuzzy, things! It’s another Self Care Sunday and I want to share with you a very powerful practice of self love. I first learned about it in Louise L. Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life. (You can read my book review here) One of my favorite exercises in this book is The Mirror. You take a mirror, look into it, looking at your reflection and you say “I love and accept you exactly as you are.” Can you do this self-love exercise for me? When you’re done reading this, go stand in a front of a mirror. If you don’t have a big mirror a little one will work, even a compact mirror will do. Look into…
