When the World Feels Harsh, Take Care of Yourself

self-care-300x300

Hello, Dear Readers,

The world is feeling very overwhelming in it’s negativity, violence and vitriol today, and I’m taking this time to give myself some quiet self care so I can recoup and face the world again tomorrow. I found a great article with 101 ways to apply self care during trying times. Read it here. Here are the ones I’ll be focusing on:

  1. Staying off Facebook. I’d say social media in general but Facebook is the only one that really brings me down.
  2. Ask for support. At work today I made sure to let my boss know that I was having a rough day and that I needed some space to just be.
  3. Let myself cry. Not that I could have stopped myself today. The tears were threatening like gray rain clouds from the time I stepped into my first yoga pose. I had to let it out.

I need some me time, some time to restore my faith in humanity. We all do at one time or another.
