Interpret that the second ‘F’ in the title as you will. It’s been a week, and I am really, really glad it’s Friday. Even if I do have to be up at 5am to get to work before 6am, and even if it was dark and snowing(ish) and even though I actually have to work tomorrow (on a Saturday… the shame) Friday is still pretty freaking awesome.
One of the (only?) good things about being at work before 6am is that you get out before 2pm. This definitely makes my Friday’s rock even more than ever. Today I am going to spend that extra time snuggling with my recovering pup who woke up in serious-out-of-nowhere pain Wednesday morning, and the vet thinks he may have a slipped disk in his back. There is really nothing worse than seeing him sick/hurt.
Worrying about him definitely takes a lot out of me, and the not sleeping/eating well doesn’t help that either. So, I’m setting an intention to get back on track today because taking care of me will help me take better care of him in return! Sometimes I think we all need a little reminder that it is OKAY to take care of yourself, it is not selfish. I’ve noticed that it’s usually when I don’t have the time to workout/eat healthy/get lots of sleep and rest that I need it the most. So, I’m going to make the time. This post offers some good ideas on how to do just that: 8 Ways to Put Yourself on Your Priority List
One of my favorite ways to spend ‘me’ time (aside from snuggling with that adorable pooch above) is practicing yoga. Now that I am teaching more and more, I’m finding it harder to fit in my own practice on a daily/weekly basis. I did force myself to go to a class last night, and I will be going to a fun yoga event with friends tonight.
It’s the best day of the week today (Friday) so, why not make it even better and spend some of it on your own “me time” today? It Doesn’t matter what you do, as long as it’s something that makes you feel good, then you can go ahead and share that good feeling with everyone around you and ‘pay it forward’ if you will.
If you share the yoga passion and are in the Boston area, I’d love to have you come share your own me time with me! My new class weekly class schedule is below!
