Mindful Monday

May 21, 2018

Self-care is about doing the things you have to do to be able to function. That may mean going to work or school, taking care of another person, maintaining your home, or being there for a loved one. Many of us place others before ourselves, and oftentimes that might mean overlooking little things that we have to do for ourselves. Have you ever found yourself halfway through your day and you haven’t eaten yet? Skipping a meal once in a while because you’re in a hurry is so common. It might not hurt you if you do it once, maybe a few times here and there, but it can be easy for those things to start piling up, and after a while they can start taking a toll on your health.

Self-Care Sunday

May 13, 2018

We often talk about the importance of self-care, but what does it really mean and how do you actually do it? Each of us has our own ways of taking care of ourselves. When I say "self-care," in and out of my professional role, I am referring to those things that you need to do in order to help you function in daily life. These things vary from person to person. Sometimes, people mistake "self-care" with "selfishness," and they might begin to believe that doing things for oneself is inherently bad. This is not accurate. If we can't take care of ourselves, we can't function, and we can't take care of others.

Favorite Fictional Mothers, Part 2

In celebration of Mothers' Day weekend, I decided to write about five of my favorite fictional mothers. You may wonder why this is part two... that is because I have done a similar post in years past, where I listed my top five favorite fictional mothers. I thought this was a good opportunity to celebrate other awesome fictional moms, so I thought about different mothers this time around.
