Nurture-Me-NovemberPosted by Samantha
Sooo those of you that know me know how geeky I am about being girly, playing dress-up, and finding manymanymany ways of indulging myself in something splendid. I could rant for hours on the magical confidence-boosting abilities of red lipstick, or how important it is to keep your chocolate library stocked. Well I’m coming off of a very hectic and stressful few months, and while things may not slow down too much, I am planning on taking more time out to take care of myself. November 1st seemed like a good, solid starting time, no? So here we are. My first ever “Nurture-Me-November”
What this means is that all month long I’m making an extra effort to do simple little things that nurture a part of myself that I want to thrive. Whether its my motherly side, my spiritual self, or my inner crafting genius; I’m going to be taking time and making notes to build my awareness and encourage making a habit out of a few of these little “extras”.
I’m going to try to make it to one yoga class every week this month. I’m also going to re-acquaint myself with my diet and look into ways of boosting metabolism and breaking my plateau. I’m going to do a little something extra with my appearance every day (earrings, lipstick, curly hair, favorite shoes, etc.). I’m going to keep myself freshly henna’d. More bubble baths. More singing out loud. More crafting. You catch my drift.
I’m going to do these things, and perhaps more importantly, I’m going to take a moment to reflect on them as I’m doing them. Why am I doing it? What part of myself am I satisfying by doing it?
One of the other good habits I’m trying to build on is blogging/tweeting/facebook
Join me and share the little ways that you’re nurturing yourself all month long! What better way to cultivate self appreciation and gratitude during a season of thanks?
