Dear Family + Friends,
As I enter spring season, I am mindful of balancing my celebrations with good practices that take me through the season feeling strong, beautiful and calm. Here are some practices I am integrating into my regimen now, to get myself set up for this new spring season of 2022.
I joyfully and methodically deepen my ongoing routine for self care now:
I am eating mostly keto now for about six months with some breaks for resetting.
I am making a time in my day for exercise. (I like to walk.)
Herb Teas in the evening are my go to, balancing my busy day with a calm evening. I like Dream Tea at night, and add some extra herbs for myself. See below, I add the same herbs in my morning coffee.
I keep some of my fav perfumes on my bedtime table and spritz throughout the evening and again i morning. Right now I am working with Apricot, Magnolia, Gardenia, Frangipani, and Ground Zero.
Morning Coffee: I add ashwaganda powder, milk thistle, dandelion root and schisandraberries to my french press every morning, and do some light stretching/yoga in the sun for vitamin d on my deck.
I make an effort to connect with my inner circle of a handful of close friends each day.
This is a core basic list. Weekly I set aside a day for tasks, errands, a day for beauty, and a day for art making. This usually keeps me on track with my creative life self care. I am flexible as some weeks are fuller and busier. Having this SELF CARE core basic is essential for me and I post it here to encourage you to develop you own core self care basics for yourself.
As I SPRING FORWARD with my CLOCKS this weekend, and look forward to my growing gardens this spring, I also stay grounded in practices that do create calm and balance for me. Blessings
