I'm not sure what your reaction to the word meditation is - you may roll your eyes to heaven, or tune in for more. There are many kinds of meditation, but one of my favourites is that of loving kindness. You don't need to know the science behind it (although if you're interested, click here
) simply play
this one I've prepared, and enjoy your five minutes which will have an impact on the rest of your day.
Be honest, what do you think of
when you think of self care? Are you
thinking spa days, manicure, treating with nice food, maybe a glass of
something sparkly, locking the door and turning up the TV?
If you answered yes, you’re not
alone. And does this all sound a bit
self indulgent, selfish even? And how
often do you achieve the above? I’m
guessing you might be struggling to remember and then feeling bad that you don’t
do it more often. Well, I’m not going to
tell you whether it’s self indulgent or not, but if you believe that, I do
think that it’s probably the reason why you don’t do it – that and telling
yourself you don’t have time/money.
