    I love all of these ideas, and I’m good at a few of them……I feel like this is a hard time in life for self care but it’s obviously so important. I need to choose one or two more to practice regularly!!

      Thanks for your comment Cathy! Oh yes, it’s definitely hard, and I agree focusing one 1 or 2 when life is busy (or always) is the way to go!

    Thanks for all your great ideas for self-care. I think it’s so important to take care of ourselves, especially having work-life balance! It’s the small things that make a difference, like having my first cup of coffee when I start my day!

      So true on the small things making a difference! I too, love that first cup of coffee, and if I can drink it mindfully, all the better 😉 Thanks for reading!

    I love all your posts. I was a child welfare lawyer and am now bringing Intentional Creativity workshops to social workers and other healing professionals to help them heal secondary traumatic stress. All of your posts and resources are so relevant to what I’m doing. I really appreciate what you are doing. I look forward to recommending your blog to the people I teach!
