Mirror Work

Self-Care and Self-Love Idea:

Mirror Work. It’s super weird, but REALLY powerful work.

Grab a sticky note, write one of these phrases on it:

“I accept you unconditionally right now.”
“You’re a gift.”
“I love you.”

Stick it on your bathroom mirror.

Look yourself in the eye anytime you go to the bathroom, IN THE EYE, and say what’s on the sticky note. It might feel really strange at first and you might want to avoid this work – that’s really telling no?

Do it for 30 days.

No joke…this work here will change some stuff inside. Promise.

Trust.

You’re worth it. xo.

Cut the crap…

February is Self-Care and Self-Love Month. Here’s an idea:

Start really noticing what you’re allowing in…

Not so very long ago, I loved fashion magazines. (I know it’s hard to believe because I look like a sweaty mess most of the time, but I love fashion.) But I started noticing that sometimes I felt crappy after looking at the magazines. I somehow felt…not enough or less than when I exposed myself to them.

So, I stopped reading those magazines.

I don’t seek out stuff that triggers my ‘less-thans’ (fitness sites, social media, some people’s websites, fashion magazines, RHO___.)

I especially avoid them on those those days when I just feel a little poopy. On those days, I make sure that what I’m putting in supports the whole of me – feeds the real and essential me.

Also, consider dropping the stuff that agitates you and pisses you off. Politics get you all wound up? Maybe step slowly away, or control your intake. Maybe start blocking people in your feed that keep posting disturbing things.

Start noticing the crap that makes you feel like crap and serve as the gatekeeper for your own beautiful self.

You’re worth it.

Self Care Month – “I can’t afford it.”

It’s a funny thing money – it can make you feel so trapped and hemmed in. I wish I could wave a magic wand and help people change their money story and talk about how money is just energy, but that’s not today.

Today is “I can’t afford self-care.”

Here’s the exercise – Name 3 things that don’t cost a penny that you’re able to do for yourself today to allow for some self-care.

1.

2.

3.

I think we get stuck in the idea that caring for ourselves has to be a trip to the spa or getting our nails done. And those things are lovely, truly. But it’s the simple things – the simple day-to-day things that we give ourselves that really mean something.

It’s like a string of pearls and each time you are kind to yourself and give yourself a bit of love, your strand grows longer.

Self-Care is the fertilizer in the garden of Self LOVE. That is why it’s so important.

Stringing together small and tender things that you do for yourself shows Self Love.

Cup of tea. Bath. Fresh air. Smiling at yourself in the mirror (powerful one.) Reading a book. A luxurious stretch. Quiet. Dancing to your favorite song. Calling a friend. Hug yourself. 15 more minutes of sleep. Waking up a little early so you have the house to yourself. Lotioning. Glass of cool water. Neatening the mess. Ignoring the mess. Drawing. Writing.

Everybody’s idea of self-care is different. And it doesn’t have to cost a penny.

And self-care is more than exercise. It’s taking care of the whole of you – your body, mind and spirit.

Nurturing yourself in the small moments and in the simplest of ways is incredibly powerful. It forms a powerful inner/outer blanket of Love. And it is through that Self Love that you are able to love others, share your gifts, and serve the world.

Do the three things on your list today. Carve it out. Show yourself a little tender care. You’re so unbelievably worth it.

Namaste. Sarah
