The Second Monday Evening Each Month
Self-care can be more than getting enough sleep, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, staying hydrated, connecting with appropriate healthcare providers, and cultivating social support networks. While all of that (and more) is essential to wellbeing, sometimes it helps to expand the typical self-care regimens to include those activities and approaches that truly nourish the body, mind, heart and soul. Most of us rarely take the time to discern just what those things are, let alone make time for them in our daily lives.
As we wind down the year 2023, this short series invites you to discern what truly nourishes you and to develop a plan for incorporating those things into your everyday life. With 2024 around the bend, recommit to nourishing YOU.
October 9, 2023: Noticing
Change begins with awareness, noticing what is working, what is not, and deciding which direction you want to take. In this session, we will practice mindfulness, learn ways to incorporate mindfulness into daily life, and begin the process of noticing (with curiosity rather than judgement) what nourishes us and what doesn’t.
November 13, 2023: What nourishes me?
We can get so absorbed in the outside world that we sometimes lose touch with our inner compass. In this session, we’ll explore ways to reconnect with your body, mind, heart, and soul inviting them to be wise consultants to your self-nourishment plans. We’ll also investigate “outside the box” ways of categorizing potential approaches.
December 11, 2023: How do I access what I need, when I need it most?
When we are in the thick of circumstances that require our focus and energy (life!), a way to access where we are and what might be helpful in the moment can do wonders. In this session, we’ll explore ways to organize what works best for you so that you can apply nourishing approaches effectively.
