Your time to bloom…
As we move into the season of Spring, we welcome the sun, warm weather activities, and the beautiful colors of nature re-emerging and blooming.
This is a time that invites us to reflect on where we’ve been, how we’ve grown and in what ways we want to continue growing and blooming.
May is Women’s Healthcare month, but this applies to you too guys!
Depending on our age, season of life or what is going on in our world, it can make a difference if we are intentional about tailoring our self-care habits to match where we are on our health journey. And having a growth mindset can support resilience because, let’s be honest,
growth can be scary and painful at times! Having a growth mindset means we approach challenges or barriers with a sense of curiosity and an openness to new possibilities.
So, whether you’re a young adult, middle aged or moving into your older adult years, self-care may look different, but these are some possibilities:
Meditating for 5 minutes
Sitting or walking in nature
Reconnecting with a good friend
Saying no instead of overcommitting
Exercising for 20 minutes
Going to church
Eating a healthy snack
Taking a stretch break at work
Journaling when overwhelmed
Taking a breath before responding
What could self-care look like for you today?
What might a life of continual blooming look like for you personally?
If you desire support in creating a life of “continual blooming” I’d be honored to work with you. We will create a wellness vision, realistic and sustainable long- and short-term goals and I will be your compassionate accountability partner, helping you navigate barriers to success.
Feel free to schedule a COMPLIMENTARY DISCOVERY CALL with me here.
