SelfCareJamesGordonFirst, I need to learn again or for the first time how to treat myself with love and respect. That starts with self-care. It is good to nurture myself because when I feel better about myself, I can extend that care to others.

I have been taught that giving to others is the way to happiness. That is true, but when I don’t take care of myself, I don’t feel like (and then resist) helping others. When I’m not nurturing and loving to myself, my depression, self-pity, and lethargy takes over and my energy level is drained. So, for me, it starts with me – and that is not being selfish as most people might think. This is being selfish in the most loving way known!

So today, I made the decision to get out in the sunshine and walk. Now that may seem to some as – “well, duh!”, but for anyone that struggles with depression, SAD, or anxiety, that is not a typical action. Even though I know the benefits of movement, it’s the impetus to get up and move that I never quite understood. Intellectually, I know, but I just don’t have the drive or desire. So what creates the desire? I can’t say because it is different for everyone. I finally decided to try it for a few minutes, even if it was just down the street and back. Even so, I had to keep pushing myself as I was putting on my sweats and tennis shoes. I told my daughter that I was going to get up and go, so I guess that’s what helped me to drag myself out from under the warm covers of my cozy bed.

You see, being a retired, recently single, but not divorced yet woman at age 66, I could come up with any excuse possible to stay and pull the covers over my head and ignore that here was another day full of possibilities of which I didn’t know or want to decide what to do.

The other blocks had to do with what was I thinking. Doing and thinking are connected, but even when I am doing, my thoughts can meander and ramble to distant parts of freaking scary places unknown in the future. Those thoughts can stop my doing or they can come along and continue to nag me into depression or anxiety. Those nagging thoughts can get extremely loud and overwhelming, and they don’t go away even when I slink back and try to hide from them.

So for today I chose to keep my thoughts on the present moment. Looking around while I’m walking, taking in the scenery, every bird, every sprouting green shoot of spring time blooms keeps my thoughts on the present moment. I acknowledged everyone else that was out enjoying the brisk, sharp breeze with a smile and a “good morning”. My need to connect after the isolation of winter has started my day by filling my self with love and compassion for me. I walked at a slow pace for now, breathing deeply and slowly through my nose as I concentrated on smiling. My day continued to unfold in a much more relaxed state than it has been for the past couple of months. It was just what I needed to remember that my life is good and I have a lot to be grateful for…how does it get any better than this?

What did I do today that I feel good about?

Where is my focus?

The mind is an incredible part of our being. I am talking about much more than the brain. Yes, that is a fascinating organ and is considered the command center of the body. I  even used to think  that the body knew best, in fact, it signaled that something was wrong in my world. I would…

In today’s hurried, whacky, frantic world, it would be difficult to find anyone who is not stressed out. There is always a laundry list of things to do and never enough time or energy to get it all done. Stress may lead to chronic anxiety and stress hormones keep us awake. Over seventy five percent…

If you are like me, I may not always recognize or acknowledge what is good in my life. There is so much chaos and turmoil going on in the world and that is what most people talk about. Whether it is politics, the world economy, what is being presented in the local news, or the…
