From time to time, even I get into a slump. Since the flood in Boulder, my attention has been on “other” things. I’ve been carpeting my basement, juggling the kids and school, and sharing more of my work on-line. Every now and then life gets a little topsy turvy and sometimes those things that are so necessary to keep us running smooth go to the bottom of the list. Things like eating well, having some down time, and breathing fresh air. So what’s a gal to do when the self-care takes a dip downward? I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve that I’ve been using to get myself back on track.
1. Put your self on your list. I live by my lists. I am a forgetful cat and my lists really help keep me on track. I separate my list into different categories. One part of my list is for work, another for my art, and a third is for my family. When my self-care slips, guess what I put on my list? Yep- I put myself right on top! I don’t need oodles of “away” time, but a little alone time can go along when we need to get back on track.
2. Schedule myself in. Number 1 and number 2 might look like the same thing, but they’re not. Every now and again, I‘ll put my on my list and I still don’t take the time to get away. That’s when I have to make some dates and put myself into my schedule. Sometimes a simple tea or a massage is all that I need to right my head and get back in the flow.
3. Dress Up. Have you ever noticed that it’s hard to wallow in yourself when you’re looking sharp. I can easily slide down the sweatpants and t-shirt path. Who doesn’t like to be comfy? But dressing up does have its benefits. When you look good, you feel good. And it’s a whole lot easier to take care of yourself when you’re feeling good. So now, I’m really curious. How do you get yourself righted when life is throwing you a curve ball?
