Self-Care September

Holy Moly. Where the heck did summer go? This year is flying by. I always love September because it is my birthday month, we finally get a break from the hot Texas summer and fall racing season is upon us. It's the most wonderful time of the year.

In celebration of my birthday, I scheduled something special for each weekend in the month of September to relax and to take care of myself. Self-care is so important. In our crazy lives we'd all do well to take some time on a daily or even a weekly basis for the things that nourish our soul.



On September 2nd I am going in for a Cryo Therapy appointment. We've been working out hard lately and my old-lady joints and muscles can always use a boost in recovery.

September 9th I scheduled a 90 minute massage with my favorite sports massage therapist. He's a miracle worker.

September 16th I scheduled a hair appointment because when you look good, you feel good, right? I swear my hair stylist has super-human abilities. He wrangles my rat's nest mess of a head into smooth and shiny locks.

September 23rd I want to go stand up paddle boarding. I've been wanting to do this for years and I figure my birthday weekend is the perfect opportunity to make hubby take me try something new.

September 30th I'll get a pedicure because these runner's feet need some love too.

One way to practice self-care is to move your body. No, I don't mean join the local CrossFit box for their 5am workout five days a week or start training to run a marathon (unless you feel so inclined). I just mean get your #assoffthecouch and do what feels good. I like this 30 Day September challenge because sometimes the hardest part of all is getting started.

Of course, self-care doesn't have to be about doing things that cost money. Take a bubble bath, read a book, turn off your cell-phone for a day, go for a hike, play with your dog, chat with a friend, sleep in, write in a journal, even indulge in your favorite show...whatever it is that makes you feel like you.
