7 favorite self care 💖

In the past 18 months I have done a lot of work on myself and for myself. And guess what?! I am more happier today than I have ever been in my entire life. Along with my friends and family, the self care items below have contributed to an amazing quality of life that I am excited to share!

1. Taking a break. I have always been bad at taking breaks. I love being productive, multi tasking and helping others. When I started my new job back in July I made a promise to myself. I added in a reoccurring hour lunch break each day to my calendar where I go outside for either a walk or run to the park or I call someone. It has been so helpful to take that time away from screens and move my body.

taking notes after a date 📝

Writing and journaling has always had a special place in my heart. It helps me hold space to reflect and analyze my thoughts in the moment and more importantly, later down the road. This has been extremely helpful dating these past 18 months. Looking back on 2021, there were so many things I read time and time again that I need to move to the fore front of my thinking.

This summer a person I never went on a date with suggested: How To Not Die Alone: The Surprising Science That Will Help You Find Love. I had an epiphany. I love behavioral science. I'm planning on reading it a second time once the Libby app makes it available for my Kindle, but seriously I should just purchase it. LOL I suggest it to everyone navigating dating. 

My favorite takeaway from the book was The Post Date 8. 8 questions to ask yourself after a date.
