Over the last several years, I’ve really loved learning as much as I can about things like “the power of the mind” and how what you think has so much to do with who you become; your health, your relationships, your successes.
I’ve tried it all; visualization, hot lemon water every morning, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar each day, coconut oil pulling, meditation, yoga. Green juicing, green smoothies. Matcha green tea. I’ve even tried jogging (it may not have looked like it, but that’s what I was trying to do). I’ve journaled; food journals, spiritual journals, goals journals, weight loss journals, prayer journals, just plain old normal journals.
So I’m a student of these practices, but I’m sort of terrible at actually putting them to use for very long.
I’m currently doing the spiritual practice of drinking Cabernet Sauvignon a few times a week.
Admittedly, I struggle to make it stick, but it doesn’t stop me from loving it, or at least the idea of it. And I know I’ll never truly give up, even if I am a poor student.
I felt like we could all use a heavy dose of “feel good” and self-care right now. I wanted to share some excellent posts that are out on Medium and Mind Body Green today.
I’d like to hear from you, too. What types of things do you do to take care of yourself? What types of self-improvement practices do you have?
And does anyone have recommendations for making them stick?
