Self Care Advent Calendar Day 24

It’s the day before the day!!!! Happy Christmas Eve!

Todays Self care idea is quite a simple one. Remember why you started.

Tomorrow ( and tonight ) may be full of tasks that you are doing on behalf of other people. Maybe it’s travelling with small children, maybe cooking for the family, maybe putting together toys. All of these can can be a little frustrating – especially if we don’t feel appreciated for it. If that happens, try to remember why you did it in the first place.

The chances are that the reason you were doing it, was to make that other person happy, not to get appreciation. So, appreciate yourself for doing something nice and leave it at that. If you get appreciation (or reciprocation) from the other person then you should be thrilled, but not expect it.

Another reason you should remember why you started is if you are trying to stick to an exercise plan or diet over the next few days. Nobody’s saying you can’t enjoy yourself, just don’t go crazy and undo all the good work you’ve been doing up until now.

Have an amazing Christmas everyone x

Never have I ever…

Have you ever played never have I ever?

The idea is that someone says never have I ever…and then states something that they have never done. Anyone else in the group who has done whatever the statement was, has to have a drink.

Some people don’t get drunk playing this game, some people get very drunk indeed.

My aim in life is to try as many things as possible, which is a great strategy for enjoying myself and expanding my comfort zone, but is a terrible strategy for playing this game.

I try to do something new as often as possible. I listen to new music, I try new sports, I read new books, I meet new people.

I expand my comfort zone.

Today I did something I had never done before.

I took my car through a car wash.

I grew up in a home where nobody drove. I was the first one to get a driving license when I was 17 and soon became the house taxi service. There were quite a lot of things that I had to do that were unfamiliar to me – simple things, like filling the car with petrol, going into a multi story car park or changing a tyre. I had to work all of these things out for myself and it all went fine. One thing I had never got around to doing was going through a car wash as before now I have always hand washed my car.

Today I changed that.

It was Fun 🙂

I will be doing it again.

Is there something you’ve never done – big or small – that you can do today?

If there is – Do It – you never know, you might enjoy it.

If you feel like commenting what you’ve done or what you want to do, I would love to hear about it.
