What does self-care look like for you?
For me it looks like this:
I go to the gym three times per week with a friend.
I practice a form of silent prayer called Centering Prayer twice per day.
At night I sit with my wife and drink French press coffee while we watch our favorite shows. (This the best way to drink coffee:)
I walk with my daughter.
I watch trains with my twelve year old son.
I enjoy college football in the Fall and Winter!
My wife and I go out to breakfast once or twice per month.
Late at night I read a book.
Sometimes on the way home from work I stop at a coffee shop, order a mocha and read a book for thirty minutes.
P.S. Need help with your self care? Contact me. I can help you.
