Happy Wellness Wednesday 😍
You know that demonstration that the flight attendants give during take-off, where they show you how to put on your oxygen mask first then to the person next to you? This is so you can have enough oxygen to help the next person. Basically, Fill Your Cup first.
We can only pour from what is filled. Remind yourself daily through positive self affirmations & thinking well about yourself, being gentle with yourself, & just overall giving yourself the Love that you give to others. You are worthy of it.
When we don’t replenish our inner environments, we lose our Peace. We become everything to everyone, leaving ourselves out to dry & sometimes not even realizing it. Below are some positive self affirmations that you can use to help you fill your cup along your Peace(ful) journey. I use these too & find them helpful when I feel like I’m running on “E.”
“I am Love.”
“I am worthy of being treated with love & respect.”
“I have everything I need right here within.”
“I am enough.”
You can also schedule time for yourself to be with yourself. Get into a good book. Make a hot cup of coco & actually drink & enjoy it while it’s still warm (I can’t tell you the cups of tea that I forgot about from being too busy to even drink it while it’s still hot). Schedule a day in the week for yourself to do something you like doing. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, even going to the gym can be it. It just has to be something that brings you back to yourself so you can feel the fullness of being you, & ready to go again for another day.
For me, I have dedicated Wednesdays to be my Wellness & Writing nights, where I make a point to do some form of exercise (preferably Yoga) & make time to write (journalling, stories, poetry, etc). It makes a huge difference when it comes to giving back to me, and making sure I have what I need for myself after taking care of others all day. What do you like doing that can replenish your Peace?

Have an amazing Wellness Wednesday my loves!😘 Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ❤💫
