We often hear the term self-care as something we should practice, and while it may sound easy to engage in helpful self-care behaviors when we have the time and the mental bandwidth, self-care can be much more challenging when life interrupts us with full schedules or difficult emotions.  

But this is when we need it most.

So what's the solution? Make self-care a habit by placing value on showing up consistently. However simple or small the act of self-love, showing up on your bad (or busy) days can have a profound impact and benefit, helping reinforce a more loving relationship with ourselves. 

Showing up consistently is not about adding another thing to your list but rather it is part of a positive focus in your day, keeping you healthy and better able to deal with obstacles that come up in your day.

"Life should be touched, not strangled. You've got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.” Ray Bradbury


Hoping you have a lovely day and in case no one has told you this lately, you're amazing!
