Walking your dogs?

Running?

Pottery class?

Reading?

Someone once explained to me that our bodies and minds are like a salt shaker. Easy to pour out the contents and empty but more time consuming to fill up. And what happens if you have nothing filling you up? The emptiness lasts longer and daily tasks and duties can becme more strikingly painful.

 So please. Consider as the leaves change colors and trees become dormant, as fuzzy friends store up food for the winter – what is building you up? What are you doing to fulfill yourself and your life? What self care activities are built in to your day?

And when you realize there is very little time for self care, or you hear yourself saying to me “LAUREN – yeah right. You have no idea how busy I am,” I will reply. I don’t care. The question remains the same. What are you doing for yourself?
