Self Care

Self Care is so important for not only our physical health but mental health as well. It can drastically reduce our stress and anxiety. Hell, couldn’t all of us afford to have a little less stress in our lives. I’ve learned that managing stressful everyday life shit becomes so much easier when I have put in the time for myself.

I am a better parent, friend, and loved one when I take just 15-30 minutes a day for myself. Shutting the noise out and just relaxing. As a recovering addict, caregiver, and most importantly a mom, I find it absolutely necessary to take this time out everyday.

One of the things I try to do daily is journal. Whether I get around to it or not is a different story. I will say though, there is something freeing about writing things down, documenting your thoughts, reflections on your day.

This blog has really helped me find inner peace. I love connecting with others on here especially other recovering addicts.

So I’m trying to find ways to be helpful to you guys as well.

When I first got clean, my mom bought me a interactive journal called LET THAT SH*T GO. I loved it. You will find lots of journaling activities and a lot of positive inspirations in it.

Below is a link where you can find the LET THAT SH*t GO journal if you want to check it out.

“You can wake up in the morning and let the big bad demons in your life take over, or you can put on your special cape of positivity and power your way above, below, around, or through them.”

“I always wanted to be somebody, now I realize I should’ve been more specific”

“Even if your on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there”
