Happy & Healthy Holidays - Week 5 - SELF CARE

“Self-care is how you take your power back.”

- Lalah Delia


Self care is a hot topic these days. To a lot of people, it means mani-pedis and treating ourselves to a face mask. And while those can certainly be part of a good self care Sunday, they aren’t the whole story. In my opinion, self care is about taking care of your mind, body and soul. It’s about listening to what you need at a particular moment and honoring it.

A great way to learn this practice is to write things down in…wait for it…your Happy Planner! You can start by using the worksheet download listed below. At the beginning or end of every day, take a few minutes to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. How am I feeling?

  2. Is there something I need?

  3. What can I do to receive what I need?

Write the answers down and find some time in your day or week to take care of what you need. Get it? Self care! Taking care of yourself. It’s important to answer these questions honestly but without judgement. If you need some alone time. That’s okay. Maybe you’re feeling sluggish and you know that you need to eat healthier foods in order to nourish your body. Do your best to make a small change that will help you reach that goal.

There’s no video this week because I was simply over-committed and thought I might lose it if I had to record, edit and post a video. So I made a choice to post the blog and send the email and I will go live on Monday to host a discussion about this week’s topic.

To get started on your own self care journey, download the worksheet, inspirational cards and wallpapers below.

Have a great week and take care of YOU!

“Caring for your body, mind, and spirit is your greatest and grandest responsibility. It's about listening to the needs of your soul and then honoring them.”
