Tonight, I did something I’ve never done: I went and got a massage. And not for the “ooh this is so relaxing” moment, or the cliché self-care moment, but for the actual part of, wait for it, taking care of my body.
It’s no secret my job is high stress, and I hold onto that stress and it comes out in the form of knots, sore muscles, lost sleep, and an achey body. Why do I do this to myself?! So after I woke up in legitimate pain the other morning, I scheduled a massage.
Self care is more than the pretty post of a bubble bath and a glass of wine or a pedicure with a chocolate bar. I am the most important being in my universe. If I feed my cats, basically my children, the best possible meals so they live long and healthy, why don’t I treat myself like that?
2020 has been all about treating myself with the best possible love I can. Cleaner foods and more water. Spin classes and therapy and more sleep. Putting my phone down and picking up a book. Spending quality time with me, the person that should be my closest ally and friend. And tonight that included a massage and it will become a regular thing.
Here’s to me.
