Here in New York, we are still shaking off the harsh Winter chills. Although not quite Spring, we are getting close. And now the challenge of accessing the damage from the cold Winter winds. Broken fences, chipped paint, seeds to be planted, the list goes on and on. That’s the thing about Winter, you can always count on having to do some damage control once it is over.
People are the same. And not just from recovering from Winter. Sometimes we need to recover from a breakup, a huge life-storm, a sickness or accident. And sometimes, we need to re-charge our batteries because we haven’t in so long. We are humans, made of flesh, none of us are superman or superwoman, as much as we would like to think it’s so.
And as humans, our bodies and our souls, need maintenance. On a regular basis. Yet how many people take the time to do the repairs or upgrades? Not as many as you think! People will spend a small fortune to fix their house or car, yet won’t spend the money, or very little, to fix themselves. Believe me when I tell you, you are worth the expense!
Facials cost money and leave your skin feeling amazing. Massages cost money, and for anyone who’s had one, I don’t need to tell you how good it feels, and leaves you feeling invigorated. Personal trainers and a gym membership cost money, and they both help you get in shape. The list goes on and on, but I think you get the picture!
Taking the time to take care of you, comes back to you tenfold. That goes for your mind too. Take a break from your cell phone, work, social media and your laptop, and find a good book. Soak up some inspiration! Join a group of like-minded individuals who motivate each other. Your mind needs tending just as much as your body. You can’t make miracles happen if you’re running on empty!
Most of us (because I like to believe we are all generous souls), are always giving and doing for others. So it is okay to take some “me time” (and that one goes especially for mothers) to rejuvenate your body and soul. We cannot be better or do better, if we don’t take care of us.
Till next time!
