Hello to my loyal followers and whoever might just be reading my posts for the first time.
Winter is always the hardest on me with it making my depression worse and not being able to get out and walk all over town like I’m used to in the summer.
The past few days we have had really warm weather. I’ve actually been able to get out and walk and feel the pressure of the winter blues wear off.
I realize that going back into the normal cold weather might bring on a bout of more intense emotions. So far this winter I haven’t had a relapse like I did last November and I want to keep it that way. And though I realize that I can’t actually prevent a relapse, as most of the time it’s out of my control, there are things I can do to help.
That’s where my self care comes in. I’ve been lacking in it and tonight that changed. I took a bath and put lotion on and tonight I’m going to turn on my aroma diffuser.
Don’t forget your self care. Even if it’s just for 5 minutes!
Here’s to taking better care of myself and doing more things I enjoy and relaxing!
