Tip #1: WRITE TO LIVE
As this is the first official self-care tip of 2012, I will share with you one closest to my heart. It remains the most powerful instrument of personal change and transformation in my life, business and weight loss (I lost over 180 lbs) to date:
Even if its just a few lines about how you are feeling, try to do some journaling today and everyday. I cannot even begin to tell you how powerful this is and doing this earlier in the day brings the greatest benefits.
Write a letter to yourself, write about your work, or just empty your mind. Write about something funny and watch your mood shift with each word. If you are concerned that someone might read your writing, write on loose-leaf paper, tear it up when finished and destroy it. In this self-care activity, the process is more important than the content.
Make the time to connect with you. You are worth it!
