Self Care in 2022
Yall, I'm bad at this. I can accept and own that at this point. At the time of this recording, I had been having back spasms for almost two weeks. I hadn't been to see a doctor or done anything other than chug down some pain meds and kept it moving. This is not self-care. I do not want this for you. Be better than me. Practice self care like your life depends on it cause it does. Audre Lorde said, "Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare.” I have read this phrase a whole bunch of times, but lately, it hits a little different. It should for you as well. There are six types of self-care talked about in the episode. emotional, practical, physical, mental, social, spiritual. Which one(s) do you need to work on? Let's do the work so that we can be healthy and show up with our whole and healthy full selves wherever we are.
