How do I love thee....
Spa & Selfcare
There is nothing I love more than going to the spa and getting pampered! Facials are my jam since they generally include a hand massage and I love nothing more than having someone rub the cramps from my fingers. Spa day is generally a treat that I give myself after making a self-imposed deadline or finishing a book.
For the times in-between, I make a conscious effort to include Yoga, Meditation or Walks into my routine. It is amazing what kind of things I can conjure up on a stroll through the trees! Self-care for me also includes feeding my craving to learn new things, so I set aside time to attend writing workshops, educational sessions and meet with my critique partners. I have found that setting aside time for myself has made me a much happier person to be around. Plus, in my opinion, you can't drink from the well if it's dry. Replenishing the creative well is something I definitely fit into my self-care routine!
