I've decided to begin a 21 day "detox." I put detox in quotes because it's not a true detox in the sense that I'm taking some crazy supplements or putting my body under extreme circumstances, expecting to achieve unrealistic results.
What I've decided to do is take 30 minutes a day and focus on self care. In a sense, detoxing from the world around me. Granted, owning a wellness center, I know I have a lot of resources at my finger tips, but sadly it doesn't seem to make it any easier to fit self care into my schedule. I still find the struggle to be real.
It makes me realize that its not necessarily a convenience thing. It's a scheduling thing. It's a recognition that I'm important enough to do something for myself every single day. It's a purposeful intention to get the "me" time in.
Seems silly to think that the most difficult part of a self-reflection, relaxation challenge is getting myself to DO it consistently! But, I suspect I'm the biggest obstacle in my own way.
I plan on counting any 30 minutes I spend outside of my "normal" routine as qualifying. (Therefore, it excludes exercise.) Check back in to see if I'm sticking to it!
