I hope that you had a fantastic week, and are ready to do some self care this week! I’m working hard to remember that taking good care of myself is a non-negotiable, because, personally, it’s so easy for me to forget to take care of myself. Sometimes, I literally forget to eat. Some people think that sounds absurd, and trust me, I get it. How the heck does one forget to eat??
I think it’s an ADHD thing. I feel my hunger queues while I’m hyperfocused or hyperactive and then I mean to eat, but I get distracted or prioritize something else. Suddenly, I feel nauseous because I’ve gone the whole day without eating anything.
It’s easy for me to check in with or take care of myself in other ways, too. Usually for similar reasons. So if you’re reading this, and you can relate, this is your reminder to mindfully practice self care this week!
One of my favorite ways to practice self care is to recite positive affirmations, and lucky for you, I like to share my practice with you, too!
Every week, I share the positive affirmations that I will be using. I always share them in the order I will be using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.), but I encourage you to use them in whatever way works best for you!
I hope you find this week’s affirmations helpful, and I’ll see you again next week!
- I get stronger every day.
- I take care of myself the way I take care of a friend.
- My voice is worthy of being heard.
- I make room for who I am, and who I am becoming.
- I always prioritize self care.
- I take things one day at a time.
- I give myself the compassion I give to others.
