A Critical Self-Care Check-In!
I truly enjoyed the session - it covers the 7 Pillars of Self-Care, a relaxing and soothing meditation with a focus on that which brings you joy, and lastly, the Self-Care Check In. I completed the self-care check in with the commitment to emotional self-care - (3 wins for today, journal for 5 minutes), physical: increase your heart rate (dog walking, cross fit,) and take 2 minutes to breathe with awareness, and spiritual featuring a random act of kindness. For the following day, I wrote down three goals and one random act of kindness in my reflection journal to get myself on the road to self-care.
