Meditation is a gift of stillness in a busy world. It is a gift of listening to what your mind and body need to tell you. It’s a gift that won’t require anything back from you. Try it for 5 or 10 minutes. Try to give yourself that time every day. focus on and appreciation of all the great things you do have in your life right now is critical. It’s incredibly tempting, during divorce, to forge a new co-dependent relationship with your couch. I urge you to resist that temptation as much as possible.
- Women are sometimes so busy taking care of everyone else, they forget to take care of themselves.
- Self-care is about nourishing your whole self to bring you back into balance. It’s about alignment.
- Daily practice in self-care, especially during a divorce, is essential to helping you find a calm, more centered you so that you can meet these challenges head-on.
“Self-care is about more than just a mani-pedi or a new haircut. It’s about nourishing your soul.”
