Radical Self Care: Blocking Off Time For Self

Radical Self Care: Blocking Off Time For Self

Committing to my own self care feels weird… I have always been taking care of someone else and it feels strange to try and prioritize myself. It feels like their is so much that needs to be done, how can I take the liberty of caring for myself? But this idea of invincibility is false. I am trying to eradicate that theory and replace it with a more sustainable one. I notice how difficult it is for me to change my habits. But by starting small and taking it one day at a time, I am changing and allowing new habits of true care to emerge. I have decided to make a commitment to my professional growth that is also a commitment to my own health and wellness. I have committed to taking Matece Skow’s 200 hour Yoga teacher training this April through September. It is a big commitment of time and money that will force me to make time for a real yoga practice. It will also force me to grow in all kinds of ways both big and small. I am excited and scared. Today I went through and blocked off the calendar through out the six month class schedule. I began making a space for my new project. I also blocked off some down time for myself to integrate the growth and development. Blocking off time to take care of yourself is a real trick to actually getting it done. It feels exciting to make an appointment with myself for some me time. It feels like I am making space for me. What is your self care activity of the day? How did you show yourself priority?
