“Anything that’s mentionable is manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.” – Fred Rogers
I loved pausing by the river this morning, placing my hand on my heart, closing my eyes to listen to the water and tuning in to what I most need right now. Emotional self-care is just as important as physical and when we don’t make it a priority, we all suffer. Join me this week as I explore the care and feeding of our hearts. Check out my 3 min. video here:
Want more? Read “Do You Take Time for Emotional Self-Care?” In three weeks, I’ll be at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health where we’ll be circling up with women at all life stages from around the globe to explore the art/science of self-renewal and how to stay awake and alive to ourselves and our lives. Women’s retreats are one of my favorite forms of emotional self-care. Join us (it’s almost full)!
