Over the past few weeks, I've made an effort to take specific actions to nurture and take care of myself. This comes after learning a hard lesson. For months, I worked a ton of hours. I let the stress build up and stopped doing the things to ensure I was thriving. Then I remember that no one was going to take care of me if I didn't do it myself. So I put down a few laws.
I began with the requirement that I had to eat some fruit on a daily basis. That worked out well. From there I started go for three mile walks whenever possible. Things are not where they need to be but every bit of progress is making a difference. My newest ritual, as of late, is another small step but I can already foresee the benefits of enjoying this ritual on a regular basis.
There's something special about treating yourself to a delicious cup of tea. Bamboo tea supports my hair and beauty journey so I'm back to drinking a cup a day. The long days and crazy travel will undoubtedly contributes to greater levels of acidity in my body. In the past, I didn't really do anything to stop it. Now, I'm incorporating the smoothies along with citrus water to help bring my internal environment back into balance. Lemon water is cool but I decided to switch it up a bit by creating a mojito inspired flavored water. A bit of mint, some limes, fresh fruit and I'm good to go. Feels like a spa inspired drink meant to enjoy in the comfort of my own home.
It's the weekend. Time to treat yourself.
