For the last several weeks I have been extremely busy getting back into my work routine. I've also been preparing to launch new programs in my practice. Quite honestly, I've been feeling overwhelmed. It has brought up a certain amount of anxiety that I often feel most acutely in the morning as I wake up to start my day.
When I sat down to meditate and calm myself, I had the divine inspiration to set up an appointment for therapeutic relaxation (body work). Of course, when I considered taking time off and spending money on myself, my first thought was, I can't afford that! But no matter how strong I am, I know that I MUST take time for self-care or I will not have energy to do all the great work I have in store for this year! So I made the appointment and today I went to get my treatment.
It was fantastic! I felt so light and relaxed after. It was worth every single penny! No matter how overwhelming life seems, self-care levels the playing field and makes it possible to deal with any situation.
