February is all about the love, obvs. But rather than focusing on other people’s love and such, I’m inviting you (and me) to be our own Valentines this month.
We can create some self-love by practicing extreme self-care this month. I’ll be posting some ideas during the month and I’ll keep you posted how I’m doing as well.
My first self-love/self-care challenge comes from Rosie Molinary‘s book, Beautiful You:
Day 223: Listen to Your Body and Respond
We spend a whole lot of time berating our bodies and not nearly enough time caring for them. It’s time to start focusing on being responsive to our body’s needs.
Challenge: Every hour stop and ask yourself “What am I feeling right now? What do I need?”
If you discover you need water, get some and drink. If you need to stretch your legs, take a short walk. If you need some connection, reach out to a friend. Whatever the need, take a few minutes to take care of it. Your body will thank you.
How are you planning to love yourself this month?
If you’d like to spend some time taking it easy and deeply relaxing in the company of others, come join me at It’s All Yoga on Sunday afternoons for restorative yoga.

What a reminder! I was just doing this yesterday! Honored to be a part of your efforts.
I’ve been meaning to tell you how much I am enjoying Beautiful You. A lot of steps I have figured out the hard way over the years, but I’m still learning so much. I wish I’d had this when I was in my 20s, it would have saved me so much pain.
