Self-Care Sunday

Sunday is not called the “day of rest” for nothing! Our society tends to always be on the go leaving little to no time to be present. Too often we tend to be thinking about what all we need to accomplish and worrying about what tomorrow will bring. I do not know about you, but this tends to cause me some anxiety and most definitely some “Sunday Scaries”. Every now and then it is important to give ourselves some grace and be okay with actually relaxing and “doing nothing”. Research shows that being more present in the moment can be very beneficial for our mental and emotional health. It is most definitely easier said than done for me personally, but for those moments when I am truly present I find that my anxiety comes down; I am more grateful for what I have; and I am overall enjoying life more. Now I am going to be honest, I woke up this morning with some Sunday Scaries, and that is why I decided it is time to have a “Self-Care Sunday”. If you are interested in incorporating a little more self-care into your life, below you will find some ideas to hopefully support you. I hope you find these valuable and have a healthy and wonderful Sunday!
