Why Self Care?
Women's Wisdom Retreat - May 2017
I'm very excited to be part of this Women's Wisdom Retreat - it’s coming at the perfect time, in the perfect place and in a theme that is close to my heart. 26-28 May, 2017 in beautiful Fiztroy Falls, NSW, Australia.
It is so easy not to find time and space for ourselves. So easy to dismiss the investment as frivolous or unnecessary. (Surely it's a bit selfish to just disappear off for some "me time?" ) But sometimes, we know deep within ourselves that this is what is needed so we can continue doing what we do with energy and joy. More than that, sometimes we need this time and space to help us to lift to the next level in our selves and in our lives - a little break from the every day to help us to reimagine and reinvigorate how we live and who we are.
This sacred and nourishing women’s space is the Women’s Wisdom Retreat and is focused on nurturing and filling our cups, because let’s face it, many of us are just run off our feet - too busy meeting others’ needs to really know what our own needs are.
I know what this is like. I’ve been working full time whilst developing my business, as well managing my home and social life. (We all play so many roles every day, don’t we?) And I always seem to be driving! Even when I am driving to and from things that I love doing, I find it can be really exhausting after a while.
In fact, many women I see are struggling with similar issues –
always feeling just a little bit exhausted
always putting something or someone before themselves
struggling with not living their truth but not sure why
feeling alone or isolated from like minded people
no time to relax or enjoy themselves
And having been there myself, I know that the action needed for me at times like this, is to stop, drop everything and take time for aligning myself. I know it might sound selfish or misguided, or perhaps just self indulgent! But I recognise that I can’t meet the needs of others if I’m unable to take care of my own. When I start feeling depressed or anxious or simply stressed out, I know it’s time for self-care.
What’s your most indulgent self care practice?
For me, I love to go somewhere with big nature like the ocean or the bush, to dance, catch up with friends who make me laugh, and to rearrange furniture. Anything that helps me to get out of my head and back into the pleasure of being quickly shifts the way I feel about myself and my life.
Below is a video with Naomi Nonu-Carling where we discuss women's wisdom and self-care of our selves and our bodies.
Come play, experience something new and be with other womenfolk, in a new way. You’ll find everything you need to know here at this link. I am hosting a session called Diving Deep Into Woman on Saturday evening, using movement and music to help us find more freedom and ease in our bodies and our selves. I love how connecting with my body in a safe, supportive environment can help me to feel more alive, more appreciative of my body and more aligned with my true self.
