I forgot to take care of myself. I was working hard, using every spare minute in the studio, taking care of my family, and generally running myself a bit ragged.
So last week I staged an intervention for myself and dialed my self-care way up. All the way up to “11.”
I took time off from the studio. I went for long walks in the air. I treated myself to a few things: a new scarf, a pair of earrings, a few new art supplies.
I read this fabulous book.
I streamed Lewis on television.
It’s been really good. I feel better – motivated to get into the studio and more upbeat and energetic in general.
It’s a good time to stage a self-care intervention before the holidays hit. If you can manage it, a break will do you good!
