#30 What Can I Do Now? Just BE!
In a world filled with so much doing, I need to give myself space to just BE! Not be my titles, my tasks, my practices, my plans, my work, or whatever else—JUST BE! When we get caught up in the doing, it’s very easy to lose ourselves in all of it. We make things we…
#29 What Can I Do Now? Set a Healthy Boundary
Healthy boundaries are such an important piece of self-care. Without them, we lie down to get walked on by our own two feet along with anyone else who wants to join in. Today, I got the reminder to not give myself away. Now, I’m pretty good at this, but from time to time, when I’m…
#28 What Can I Do Now? JOURNAL!
“Journaling is like whispering to one’s self and listening at the same time.” -Mina Murray Today, I got a clear sign it was time to journal. This is not the same as my free-writing where I get a timer and just write it out. Journaling is a little bit more complex than that, at least…

I allow them to share from their hearts, and I open up mine. I give them…

Do It Now Challenge #9
Pick a Mantra and Live By it In This Moment When we have challenges, it’s very useful to have mantras to help us get through. 12-step programs are where I learned the power of mantras. I used to go to an AL-ANON meeting where there was a few on each wall. I’m not asking you…
#25 What Can I Do Now? Laugh!
“Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.” Lord Byron I love to laugh. I love listening to other people laugh. I love being in a crowd of people laughing. Today, I’m really appreciating all the moments I got to just laugh. The beauty of this day and age is that I can find…
#24 What Can I Do Now? Eat Something Healthy
One of the gifts of self-care is that when we do it in one area of our lives, others areas open up naturally. Eating something healthy isn’t about shaming myself for what I look like, my weight, my blood pressure, or cholesterol levels. Eating something healthy is simply about wanting to do something nice for…
#23 What Can I Do Now? De-clutter One Space
De-cluttering one space at a time is so incredibly rewarding. When I say one space, I don’t mean an entire room. I mean one drawer, one shelf, or one section of the closet. If it leads to another—great! Doing one small space at a time keeps me from being overwhelmed about the process. I keep…
