Practicing Self Care Through Nature

By Estelle Hayes

Last week I explored the topic of self care and how that concept changes for each of us over the years. I loved hearing about your routines of weekly walks with friends, solo kitchen time and quiet moments after the kids go to bed. Let’s keep the discussion going. What do you have planned this weekend to nurture yourself?

I have two new seedlings to get in the ground and some banana peels to feed my roses. Taking care of my plant babies is a reliable way to lower my blood pressure, focus my attention outside of myself and quiet my mind for a bit. What will you do today?

      I love that you got to sleep in. Nothing wrong with a treadmill run after a good night’s sleep. :) Have a great Sunday, Danielle!

    i loved last week’s (and this) post on self care. it’s something that has been on my mind a lot lately.  not necessarily practicing it, but more-so what i can do for myself that will truly uplift, energize, inspire… and what i have been spending time “doing for myself” that i’m finding does not do any of those things… which in turn leaves me with no time to do the former (reading, nature, walking/hiking…).
