As women, we take care of our world and all within our reach. We soothe children’s boo boos and console a spouse’s discouragement. We fix meals, solve problems, fold towers of laundry, teach Sunday school, serve our communities, and earn money to pay bills. Um…a question…Who takes care of us?
Self care refills our empty coffers and allows us to continue giving. As important as vitamins, a healthy diet and exercise, all too often it remains shockingly absent in a busy woman’s life. We postpone taking care of ourselves because we are too busy, despite the fact that it is easy and inexpensive and essential. I promise.
But that’s what I do. Self care is my business. I remind women: it’s okay to take care of you. It’s okay to replenish and restore what you so freely give to others. It is not selfish to take care of yourself…it’s essential.
How do you do that? Establish tiny routines. Racing to town, apply a non-greasy big fat yummy hand cream at a red light and drink in the fragrance. At bedtime dab on a moisturizer and feel it seeping into your thirsty skin. Shower with a chunk, the best soap on the planet. All my products are under $25, and buy five, get one free. Affordable and necessary. Feel free to check out my full product lines at http://www.madaboutposh.com and message me with questions.
Small, tiny acts of self care. I give you permission to take care of yourself.
