Self-Care Week – Sick of hearing all of the negative news everywhere you turn? And, worrying about your aging parent’s daily needs and wellfare can be a little stressful too. It’s time to give yourself a week off from stress and engage in relaxing and positive conversations.
Take a week off and Give Yourself a Self-Care Week
Take a week off from watching the news, reading the newspaper and engaging in conversations that make your blood boil and worrying about your parents. Instead, give yourself a self-care week. During this week, engage in conversations with people that are a positive influence in your life discussing things that make you happy. You will read only inspiring books, watch uplifting movies with happy endings, eat healthy organic fruits and vegetables, do your favorite cardiovascular exercise and take plenty of warm Epsom salt baths. During this self-care week you will only have positive thoughts about your family, your parents and your life. You will imagine the best possible scenario and live in the present moment fully. Are you ready for this?
Affirmation: “I trust divine orchestation and believe everything always works out!”
Setting your intention for your self-care week: “I choose to release all of my concerns about my family, my parents and the economy. I am committed to believing there is always a solution, there is an abundance of love and everything is in divine order.”
Here are a few fun things to converse about.
What are you passionate about that brings you joy? What was the wisest lesson you learned from your parent? When have you laughed the hardest lately and what were you laughing at? Who do you consider to be your role model and why? What is one of your favorite books and why? What was one of the silliest things you have ever done in your life 🙂
