Hi there 🙂
Would you believe me if I told you sometimes I struggle with self care? That often an extra cup of caffeine and a piece of dark chocolate sounds better than 20 minutes on my mat. That my wellness check ups are often the last ones to get scheduled. That I sacrifice sleep to get office work done. Sometimes, even though I talk a good talk, I slack in my own self care. So this week I have taken it up a notch. I attended an online mat class of an instructor I’d admire. I cleaned out a closet and then rewarded myself with some time working on a project I enjoy. I scheduled some needed appointments. I made some *healthy* but still very tasty snacks. I took a bath.
What about you? How are you doing in your self care practice? Are you eating well? Getting enough sleep? (Something I am still working on!) Are you getting outside, stopping to take breaks at your desk, or reaching out to a friend when you need to connect? Are you moving? Have you moved today?
I hope so. I hope you are doing all those things. Let’s do them together…well, some of them. :-). Like exercise. Let’s do that together.
Whether you join me this Thursday, sign up for the recording or schedule a private I look forward to helping you take good care of your body and mind. Heck, by now we know it is all connected. As we close out this month, let’s practice what we preach. That movement is indeed an essential part of lives. That breath is something we have the luxury of doing all day long without thinking about it, but also a skill we can nurture on our mat. That we need to schedule the time for self care. Because in a world that is constantly shifting and changing, caring for ourselves should be our TOP priority.
Join me* for class, Thursdays at 10am PST or sign up to receive a link to do class at your leisure. “Move with Me” is a combination of Pilates, Yoga and functional exercises inspired by rehabilitation modalities. Feel free to email me with any questions or inquiries.
