Introducing Self-Care Sundays!!

Happy Wednesday everyone! This week I am introducing a new series I will be doing called Self-Care Sundays. Each week I will share something that I do, my friends or family do, or new ideas about self-care. I would like to do this because an essential part of my business is promoting the ideas of self-care, self-compassion, and self-love.

I chose Sunday's for this series because I like the alliteration for the title and Sundays are often looked at as a day of rest. I grew up in a family that went to church every. single. Sunday. This was followed by a large egg and bacon breakfast, and sometimes an outing of some sort. But most often we spent the time on Sunday at home, finishing chores, completing weekend homework, and getting ready for the week ahead. This was how a majority of the people I grew up with spent their Sunday. Many people all over the world still do this every week.

I don't go to church anymore, and haven't for very many years, but I still think of Sunday as a day of preparation for the week ahead. I plan out our meals, we go grocery shopping, clean the house, do laundry, and spend some time together. I think of all of these things as self-care for Brad and I. We are doing what we need to do in order to be the most successful we can be in the coming week ahead. 

And really, isn't that what's important? Doing the things that set you up to accomplish your goals?

Some Sundays are better spent doing absolutely nothing and resting on the couch bingeing a show on Netflix. Other Sundays are better spent hiking, walking, or just being out in nature. What is most important is that the time is spent doing something that is good for you, and your mind, body, and soul.

Some people work on Sundays, other people have children's activities, and chores, or a whole to-do list. The idea behind these posts is to give you some inspiration for ways to take care of you. Some of my posts will be quick easy face masks you can make in a few minutes and keep on while you continue chores. Other posts will be about an inspiring book I've read and would like to pass on to you. Others will be about my personal self-care routine on a daily basis, and I will have guest posts from other people who practice self-care and compassion in their own lives.

These posts will be kept here on the blog so you can come back to them anytime you need for inspiration.

The series will be starting this coming Sunday, and I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to share your own self-care and compassion ideas. No action of self-care is too big or too small.
