Celebrating Self-Care Day!
“Listen. Make a way for yourself inside yourself. Stop looking in the other way of looking.” – Rumi
Join us on Saturday, November 21st from 5-7pm (MDT) for a much needed self-care day at home to reboot, recharge, and soothe the soul. Sign up below!
Feeling stressed and overwhelmed? We are all navigating an abnormal world, and it’s hard to know how best to take care of our needs during this tumultuous time. Self-care is key to living a balanced life and maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself. It’s so important to intentionally take care of your body, mind, and soul in order to thrive and live fully. Self-care can mean many things, from doing more ordinary things like getting good sleep and exercising daily to treating yourself with specialties like a massage or going out to dinner.
November 16 to 22 is recognized as the national self-care awareness week, and we’ve dedicated 2 hours (5-7pm MDT) on Saturday, November 21st to celebrating self-care day at home and loving yourself! It is time to hit the reset button to rest, nourish, and connect, learning ways to come back into yourself with morning and evening rituals. Learn to set boundaries for me-time, enjoy flowing movements to unlock stagnate energy, and turn on your innate healing energy with Qigong and a self massage.
We will begin the celebration with some dance and qigong to get the happy molecules bouncing and immune system fired up. Later, we will split into breakout groups and discuss self-care tips and tricks for winter, as well as go over ways to take care of ourselves during these interesting times. Finally, Christina Russell will guide us through a self-massage using tennis balls before ending with a group meditation to slow down, calm the mind, and get us ready for the night and days ahead.
“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.” – Anne Lamott
This is your chance to escape and unplug, reset and start anew from the comfort of your home. The truth is, a lot of us have a difficult time even considering the concept of self-care. Many of us struggle to wrap our heads around the idea of valuing ourselves enough to intentionally look after ourselves. Doing so can feel like a foreign concept or like breaking an unwritten rule. But you need to put the oxygen mask on yourself before you can help others!
