Day 10 Of #365daysofselfcare

IMG_20180509_235911_197This morning I had a very much needed counselling session. Sadly it was my last session. I have been very lucky to be able to access 12 session from Care for the Carers in Eastbourne. The sessions have helped so much and I am now looking at other options so that I can have weekly support. They are a vital part of my self-care, I find talking with an impartial person so helpful. I also find that in having my thoughts mirrored back to me, I realise things or discover things I hadn’t seen before.

Day 3 of #365daysofselfcare

This Blog is part of the #365daysofselfcare challenge

2018-05-03_00.38.03-01Today can best be described as a, ‘wading through treacle’ day.

I had a  counselling this morning. It helped to share how I’m feeling and to vent my frustrations at my additional health issues. Having someone to talk to is so vital.

I felt quite lost once back home and very frustrated with myself. I did lots of gentle talking to myself  and reminding myself that my feelings were both understandable and valid.

I managed to find some motivation later in the afternoon and made a video for my channel. I also made nutrient packed salad despite the temptation to buy junk.

However, I wasn’t mindful of the time and sat editing my video until almost 1am. I tried not to get cross with myself and just set the morning alarm for a couple of hours later.

I decided it would be helpful to take a little more time to wind down before getting into bed, so I made myself a hot chocolate and sat in bed reading a chapter of a book before turning of the light and settling down at 1.45am

Tomorrow is a new day.
