Starting today, every Friday I am going to take a day off from blogging.
But what about the yoga and the music? I’ll post the practice and the title (probably on Saturday).
Let’s be honest, the real self-care comes from knowing your limits, boundaries and taking the time you need to renew.
What will I be doing instead of yoga, music and writing about yoga and music?
In honor of listening to my need for self-care, I’m having my twice monthly massage today. Yep, I get a 90 minute massage every other Friday from Tess Bradley at the Body Mind Center in Midtown Sacramento.
<Drop everything and immediately make an appointment with her – she’s AMAZING! Tell her you read about her here>
Twice a month massage?!?!?
It must be nice. <snide comment I’ve been hearing for years about this practice>
Why yes, it is.
I look at massage as a financial commitment to my health and well-being. Massage, like yoga, helps me be a nicer person. It feels good and it helps keep me healthy. It also helps me be a better teacher, wife and friend. I started having massage regularly so I could deal with the grief of my stepdad dying and felt all the benefits of regular body work.
What practices do you regularly do to take care of yourself? Please leave a comment and if your self-care thing interests me, maybe I’ll start doing your thing too.
PS- Think of Fridays as blog-reading catch-up day. If you’ve been a little behind on all the good stuff, here’s my gift to you.
PPS- I’m thinking of Saturdays being music round ups.
