I hope you are enjoying this Red Tent journey through self-care. There are so many ways to show your self you care. In this post, we will delve a bit into creating. You don’t have to be an arts and crafts to create, it can mean so many things!
If you haven’t been following along until today’s post, the subject has been about our own Red Tent‘s. I’ve talked a little about grounding and cleansing so far. Today we will be delving a bit into LOVING ourselves.
Now that we are grounded and present, the next step is to do some Cleansing. This can mean your body, mind, and even space. I will give you a great cleansing foot bath recipe, but also a few other ideas as well. The recipe does not have to be exact. It may sound strange, but you can find many of these items in your kitchen or a grocery store.
This 5 part series will take you through my own personal red tent of self-care. Though I am guilty of falling off sometimes, I make sure to get back to a routine as much as I can. Some days if I have gone the whole day without some type of conscious self-care, I lay down in my bed for the night, close my eyes and take 3 nice deep, slow breaths. That’s just enough.
For a very long time, women were pushed further and further into the background. Though we have been making strides in the last century, women still tend to forget themselves. Taking care of loved ones, working, keeping up the home, and general modern life stress can take a toll. We make excuses, even sub-consciously, “no time”, “too tired”, “not in the budget”. But it is extremely important to even take a moment each day to breathe. Being tapped out on energy can leak into other areas of our lives.
