What Does Self-Care Look Like For You?

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.
