This month I have decided to focus on intense self care. When I say “decided”, I mean my body has been sending me signals for a few months now that she is in need of better attention and care.

There is nothing like a pinched nerve that makes your body ache and extremities numb to wake you up to the fact that something is up! I, for one, have not been getting much sleep and have been mindfully trying to remedy that, but somehow did not remember to adjust my exercise accordingly and ended up overdoing it a bit, thus the painful reminder.

My guiding word for this month is “gentle”, and that is how I intend to approach healing. What are some of your favorite self care practices for healing?

My daughter collected rose petals this morning that we will use for a soothing, calming fragrant tea.
