I often talk about filling our cup, as a metaphor for meaningful self-care.
As a therapist, these days I work with clients online and strolling in the local park.
Either my clients and I know each other remotely or in-person in the environs.
This has been one of the impacts of COVID
At times I miss the comfort of the green couch and the mid-century bookcase filled with my favourite texts, that was once my therapy room.
But the COVID related forced isolation was a time for quiet reflection. A reconnecting to what is most valuable to me. My partner, my family, my garden and freedom.
Freedom to live life as it suits me.
The more I honour this, the more I can honour other.
In many ways this is the foundation of The Calm Store
An invitation to come to know yourself and fill your cup in a way that is meaningful to you.
Permission to -
slow down, check in, and act upon the self-care - that really truly fills you
I invite you to check in with yourself today
and despite the changes and perhaps even the discomfort that might ensue
fill your cup in a way that is meaningful to you
everyone will benefit, including you
