Sometimes the most important self-care act is to rest one’s body and mind. Unfortunately most of us don’t have much opportunity to do this during the day. Taking a break from what you’re doing can help you stay motivated for a task and can give you the opportunity to step away from a project and come back with more creativity. Taking a pause from family and friends can also help you appreciate them more and maybe help them appreciate you more as well.

do something now

schedule into your day a 10-15 minutes pause, take a walk or lay in the sun, just make sure to put away the stress of the day for that time.

    Sounds easy enough but it is not when one is not in the habit.
    So now I will be mindful and try and do so daily as I need to to regain some balance
