Right about now I know many are feeling discombobulated, overwhelmed, unmotivated, anxious, depressed, lost. This is not uncommon for this time of year. There is such a let down from the frenzy of the holidays and pressure to rock the new year that people feel paralyzed. If this is you do not worry. It makes sense!
In fact, this week includes a Blue Day – Blue Monday (the 3rd Monday in January), the most depressing day of the year! The post-holidays crash, wintry dark days, arrival of unpaid credit card bills, and realization of unkept New Year’s resolutions would do that to some. Here is a fun site on this for kicks: http://www.bluemonday.org/. You might also want to check out getting a Light Therapy Lamp!
So now is the time to be gentle, compassionate and loving towards yourself. Now is the time to pamper and comfort yourself out of the slump and reset so you can have your most amazing year yet (no pressure!). I am currently playing with an AMAZING book on self-care, The Woman’s Comfort Book. It’s by Jennifer Louden, who also wrote, The Couple’s Comfort Book.
This is a terrific resource for finding ways to expand your self-care, self-nurturing, self-pampering, self-soothing, self-love, and such. It provides tons of different ways to accomplish these and a robust resource list the specific topics she covers. Just glorious…
Focusing on this for yourself will help empower, recharge, reset, motivate, and inspire you. Just what’s needed right about now. And, while you are it, check out the Couple’s version to get your Relationship off to an amazing start as well. 🙂
Most people focus on things like releasing weight, exercising more, saving money, and paying off debt. Not many include a relationship goal or intention when thinking about the New Year… If you do, you get a gold star!! This is interesting as being in a happy relationship is one of the most important success, health and happiness indicators in our life…
So, how about it? Let’s make it a new habit to pay better attention to our love life and our partner… The book I mentioned above is a great way to start nurturing your relationship.
