Self-Care >>>

One of our projects in the Intuitive Heart Sanctuary was to take some photos of a few things we do for self-care.  This is one of my favorite subjects, as I am a firm believer that we must take care of ourselves first, before we can lovingly take care of others.  Or at least make little bits of time for ourselves when we can, in between.  It is very very important.  Self care does not have to be something that takes alot of time, just something that makes your soul sing, even if for 5 minutes.  Below are a few images that do that for me.

1. We recently moved the record player into our bedroom and its one of the best things we could of done.  I get to turn on a record now when Im in the shower or tub, or right before bed to relax to before I fall asleep.  Or while I fold laundry on the bedroom floor!

2. I love bath salts.  My friend Rain sent me the best bath salts Ive ever used from Origins and I use it like its gold, ha ha.  I recently traded a friend the other bath salts and Im loving them.  They are from Sage Goddess.

3. Just a few of the books Im currently reading.  I usually have between 5-10 books Im going back and forth between each night, depending on my mood.  I like reading this way.  Otherwise I tend to get bored really easily.  After seeing several recommendations, Im anxiously awaiting the arrival of Women Who Walk With Wolves.

4. Smoothies.  Nourishing my body has been a big priority for myself lately.  Im more ways than one.  But making a simple smoothie is an easy way to nourish your body each day.  Something that even my hubby will drink and he hates all veggies.  :)
