I just got back from an extremely busy week in NYC. It was go-go-go. My little guy and I would leave the house somewhere between 8am-9am and get back somewhere between 4pm-6pm. On Wednesday I walked 17,000 steps according to my Apple Watch!
While this was great for my fitness level and for my son’s learning (zoo! science museum! playground!), I felt physically and mentally exhausted after this busy week. It was an amazing reminder for me that I needed to take some time to recharge and for self-care.
Self-care is something we love to talk about but we rarely do. It is great to say “take some times for yourself” but it isn’t going to help you unless you actually do it. And while this week is less busy in the sense that I’m not out of the house walking around a city all day, I still have laundry, business emails and preschool pickup to do. So here’s how to practice self-care with simple strategies no matter how much time you have.
So tell me, how do you practice self-care?
