Simple Rituals for Surviving School Breaks•
School's out for..... winter break!
While the break from packing lunches and getting the kids out the door each day is a welcome change, the constant bickering between the boys inevitably starts to wear on me about midway through.
This week, I had the genius idea to make self-compassion my focus. Talk about progress, I'm actually taking steps towards my own care! Full disclosure: I kinda suck at self-care and it takes a concerted effort. If you struggle too, you have found yourself in good company ;)
The question I keep contemplating is, "how would I care for and treat someone I deeply love?"
This question has been revolutionary. I've been able to slow way down, be present, and practice some simple rituals:
- Savoring my morning coffee with a book
- Spritzing myself with the water mist, placing my hand on my heart, and inhaling deeply
- Taking my supplements which really helps to keep my hormones balanced
- Burning a candle most evenings while watching TV.
- Wearing my nuummite heart Crystal Talisman necklace.
