My friend, Judith aka my personal Buddha, has a strong self-care game. Not only did she recommend I buy flowers, but she sent me an advent calendar full of self-car ideas like listen to an inspirational podcast, sweat, read, meditate and more.
One of the items on the list is “Watch the sunset or sunrise,” so I watched the former and after a few minutes of staring out the window, I got surprisingly antsy. So I decided to close my eyes and do a visualization exercise picturing what I want in my life. That felt good and I figured it would kill some time (sort of the antithesis of self-care.)
