Today I conducted a workshop for other yoga teachers. The workshop was on yoga and foot health. To finish the workshop I took participants through giving themselves a relaxing foot massage.
In the lead up to this workshop I had been practicing this foot massage. It is one I used to do on myself often. However, it has been a long time since I gave myself this gift of time.
Of course, in the workshop I encourage and challenge participants to revisit this foot massage again (and again) taking time for a little self care. Yet, obviously I am not always great at following my own advice. This is an area I can work on.
How are you at taking time for a little self-care?
Do you make self-care part of your daily/weekly/monthly routine?
Do you have any plans for self-care prior to or during the holiday rush that will soon be upon us?
Can you make a commitment to schedule some time for giving yourself a little self-care before ending this year?
Self-care doesn’t have to be a luxury. Sometimes it is the simplest things that are the most nourishing.
I invite you to take some time to reflect on what self-care might look like for you.
If you need a little nudge to get you started, I invite you to join me Friday, November 26 at 6pm (CST) on Zoom and I will guide you through a relaxing foot massage.
