Nurturing Your Life: A Note from Bev
Caring for your body, mind, heart and soul are ways in which you cultivate your capacity to be kind and loving to yourself.
Self-compassion is not selfishness, in fact it is just the opposite.
As you come to feel loved and cared for, it is as if you have inhaled all that you need. And then, as you breathe out, you exhale loving energy  to others.
Enjoy these busy rainy days remembering to take time to replenish.
Warmly,
Bev

Fieldwork
  • Set aside 10-15 minutes just for you. Have your journal handy and a cup of tea or coffee. Light a candle or sit by the fire. This is your time to listen to you.
  • Close your eyes and notice your breathing and any tightness or tension in your face, jaw, neck, arms, body, legs.
  • Breathe, just breathe.
  • Take a moment to wonder about some of the reasons that self-care is important for you.
  • How would you benefit by making time for you?
  • What would replenish you right now – in this present moment?
  • Which area of self-care do you sense would be most helpful to you now? Physical, Emotional, Mental, Spiritual – what do you sense is your deepest need?
  • Name one way you can say “yes” to caring for yourself this week.
  • Write this in your journal.
  • If you have a friend you can share this with – do so for support. (Call someone from our Mom’s group!)
  • Notice how you feel when you follow through on caring for yourself in just one small way.
See you at our next meeting on December 18th!
