How are you taking care of yourself and listening to your body today?
Today I am resting. A dreaded summer cold has gotten ahold of me, and I feel miserable, as all colds make me feel.
Sometimes colds, feeling under the weather, and fatigue are good reminders to take a little break. To rest a little. And today I’m listening to that reminder.
My kiddos didn’t want to get out of their pajamas this morning, so I let them stay cozy, and we had a day of watching movies and playing inside. It was raining, so it worked out perfectly in my favor.
I even sat there and watched a movie with my kids. Normally I find myself doing other things, being productive. After all, do adults really need to watch kid movies? Turns out occasionally we do!
Self care can be so many things, and today for me it meant hanging out with my kids, relaxing and listening to my body. I didn’t even try to muster through a workout this morning.
Take care of yourself. You got this!
