Self Care Sundays

Self-Care Sundays

I try to make a point to never portray myself as someone who’s ‘figured it all out’, and self-care is an area I am continually working on.

On Sundays when I don’t teach, I like to spend my day on self-care. From the outside, it really doesn’t look like much.

I might pick up a random magazine or journal and poke around in it.

I might do some really free-form yoga.

I might listen to The Moth on the radio and sit down with a cup of tea.

I might organize my underwear drawer (really!).

I might throw away a bunch of stuff.

I might play a really old cassette and be transported back to being age 17.

I might open a page of a self-help book I haven’t yet read.

I might roll around on a foam roller.

I might open a stone box I have of tiny slips of paper and read one. (I call this a Dream Box and it has New Year’s ‘resolutions’ – things I wanted to call into my life, from the last 3 years).

As a somewhat introverted and creative person, these Sundays really recharge and restore my spirit.

I think for someone quite extroverted, they might not even need a self-care Sunday, or their idea of one might be completely different.

If self-care seems like a foreign, yet attractive assignment, here are a few tips to making it easy: Private Yoga Santa Monica Brentwood Pacific Palisades Bel Air Venice

  1. Don’t make self-care a job, a chore, or an item on your written or virtual to-do list.
  2. Slow down with whatever you happen to be doing at that moment.
  3. On a different day (not Sunday), identify a few activities that are just PURELY ENJOYABLE TO YOU.
  4. On a Sunday, do those.

Anything you like to do – however unusual – that feels uplifting and restorative to you?
