#LoveU is a mission to encourage everyone to love themselves and take care of themselves. I am a strong believer that the better you feel the better you behave; and the better you are at giving others the real you.
I am pretty good, now, at taking good care of myself. I will take a day and relax and do things I enjoy even if its something as small as listening to a song on the radio or eating my favorite candy. I keep my health in check by keeping regular appointments with my doctor and dentist (mammogram scheduled for next Thursday).
As most of you already know, I’m a special educator, I have been since 1992, in some form or another, so its a clear shot to think that its something I’m passionate about doing. Teaching students that learn differently, are on the AU spectrum or whose behaviors may make it difficult for them to learn in a general education classroom, is one of my favorite things to do. Getting to go to work everyday and do what I enjoy and something that I know helps other people is not really work at all. It is part of MY self love and self care
I said all of that to say: I’ve decided to take things one step farther in my professional life. I have enrolled in college to advance my degree and apply to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. If you enjoy what you do it, you will work to do it well, including what you do as a career. Most adults spend many hours at a full time job, shouldn’t it be a place that is pleasurable? Think about what you can do to make your work life more enjoyable. I’d love to here your thoughts.

“Its hard to do good if you don’t feel good!”, this is a quote from a lecture by Les Brown. And he is absolutely right. Everybody wants to be successful and happy but have you ever tried to go to work with a headache, or a cold or you just plain didn’t feel good. Where you able to give your 100% effort? Probably not…….TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
What about what you tell yourself. I’ve said once before that; You are what you say you are; in other words “so a man thinket, so is he”. Be careful of what you tell yourself…tell yourself happy thoughts, positive thoughts. Make a commitment to love you and use kind words with yourself. How many of us replay the last argument or negative conversation in our heads. We think of snappy comebacks that we wish we would have said. Basically, we get upset again about something that’s over. Instead of reliving that bad situation over and over again; Let it go!! Move on! Live in the happiness of your now.
Take care of your health! Be cautious of what you tell yourself.
I saw my close friend’s smile grow tremendously on yesterday as we ate lunch in a local sandwich shop. That smile was brought about by her seeing her boyfriend walk into the restaurant. One main goal in self care is to do things that you enjoy doing. Surrounding yourself with people that make you happy is a beautiful, healthy thing. My advice to everyone is this……
This pass weekend was very busy for me, some good, some not so good; but I was able to etch out some me time just the same.
Your list may not look like mine but should always include my last check box of DO SOMETHING FUN!
What did you do for yourself today, this past weekend, this month?
Get busy taking care and loving yourself.
Until next time…
I will remind you again how important it is to take care of yourself. But its not just me saying this:
Yes you have to do this for YOURSELF!!
In fact everything is right about loving yourself!
It is easy to put off a doctor or dentist appointment because we get too busy doing other things, but this is very important to your well being and a crucial part of self care. Taking care of your body means loving yourself as a person.
Today I encourage everyone to get a health check up. Go get the ‘well woman’ exam, men; get the prostate check up. Do this for yourself! Visit a dentist, even is nothing is hurting or wrong. Proper oral hygiene is a must.
Practice preventive measures to stay healthy. Don’t wait until you are sick to start taking care of your body. Its a lot easier to do when you feel good.
