Self-Care: The Journal
I keep a written journal. Each day, I begin my entry with what I call my 411 - four things for which I am grateful, one personal challenge/behavior that I am working on improving and the one most important thing that I need to get accomplished in the day.
Right now, I am concentrating on listening more and talking less, on asking questions, not interrupting and focus on being interested and not interesting. And I give myself a sticker if I've been particulary successful. If I've been particular successful in providing myself with exceptional self-care, I get a big, sparkly sticker :-) It is amazing how great it feels to be able to add my stickers to my journal each day. And for those days where I don't hit the mark, well, there's no recrimination about that.
Made four spin classes this week. Woo to the Hoo!
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Find a way to reward yourself.
