One way I practice Self-Care

The boys got off to school on a good foot and thankfully, Elliott is feeling better also. Aside from being exhausted, things went well. I took the boys to school and on the way home, I summoned up enough energy to hit the track.

I didn’t set any records but I showed up and walked.

There was no part of me that wanted to do that but I know I need to make that a habit once again. I’m already losing weight at a decent pace since dropping the Paxil. Walking in the morning is not only good for my body and mind but also my soul.

With all the stress I endure each and every day of my life, I need this time to let everything go, even if it’s just for a couple laps.

Listening to music and being in nature helps me to center myself. When I’m done, usually in about an hour, I feel recharged and in a much better place to deal with life.

I walk with the boys and Lizze a few days a week anyway but this alone time is very important. It’s something that’s easy to fit into my schedule and Lizze is happy to hang with the boys so I can go. Sometimes I’ll walk with Lizze or my Mom and I love those times also. Sometimes it’s nice to put in the earbuds and venture out in my own.

For the record, this doesn’t mean you should stop calling me to walk in the morning’s Mom… I always look forward to that.. ☺
