I don’t think my life is all that exciting.
It consists of the usual mix of activities related to work, play, food, and family.
Contrary to popular belief, just because I live by the beach doesn’t mean I spend every day frolicking in the waves!
Catching a glimpse of the ocean twice a week is pretty good for me.
Of course, the occasional “staycation” doesn’t hurt.
My favorite thing is being able to take a whole day (and sometimes overnight) to drive to one of the nicest beaches around here and really unplug for a bit.
If I had a magic wand, those leisurely beach days would happen once a week!
Right now, because I am building my business and still working as a consultant, its about once a month.
But I’ll take it : )
Until I get to that once a week staycation reality, I make an effort to build self care practices into each and every day.
A morning ritual.
Sitting down with my husband for a mid-day meal.
An occasional afternoon coffee shop trip.
These are the self care practices that keep me grounded.
