Self-Care isn't always glamorous

In this episode, I decided to share a beautiful writing by another person that I've seen circulating on the internet over the years. I chose to share it at this time of the year as we go through the holiday season and into another brand new year. 

Listen to episode #90 : Self-care isn't always glamorousFind A JOY TO BE ME on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 

“Self-care is often a very unbeautiful thing.

It is making a spreadsheet of your debt and enforcing a morning routine and cooking yourself healthy meals and no longer just running from your problems and calling the distraction a solution.

When you become aware of your inner stress barometer-  it can help notify you when you need to give your body more of what it needs.  In order to restore your equilibrium you have to find the right balance in your life in order to restore harmony.

Does your body "act up" when you are stressed?

Do you get strange sensations that make you worry you might have something seriously wrong with you?

Do you listen to your inner needs when you are spread too thin, or do you "power" through it, depleting yourself further?

There's a line in the Lord of Rings in which Bilbo tells Gandalf that “I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.”
