I notice that when I take time for myself, I am able to deal with the stresses of my day with so much more ease. Taking this time means reading, watching Oprah (who had the author of Eat Pray Love, Liz Gilbert, as her guest yesterday), taking a hot bath, having a nap or meditating/reflecting/journalling and/or relaxing while drinking a cup of herbal tea. I settle into myself at an entirely different level than those days which are all about racing through the To Do List. How do you take time for yourself during a busy day? How do you reconnect with your core? Feel nourished? Relaxed? It is very important to know this about yourself and make the time to give this to yourself each and every day, even if it's just one 15-minute segment. The key is to find what feels like a blessing that you're giving to yourself.
