How will we take care of ourselves?

Be extra certain that you take care of you and your family.  It may sound simple, but be sure to get enough rest and exercise, and eat and drink in moderation.  Take some time to create moments of solitude or time for quiet reflection.  Even though things can get really busy, try to slow down and take the moments in.  You will need a lot of energy, so be prepared.  Have those things on hand to help give you the energy you need for everything. 

                I am not sure exactly what we will do to take care of ourselves.  Hopefully, weather pending, spending some time walking outside can be added to our list.  If you don’t journal, now may be a good opportunity to take time to write.  If you don’t write, then paint or photograph or draw.  Do whatever you are drawn to that will allow you to take care of yourself-physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.  A lot of what we will end up doing will be decided in the moment.  It will be more of a, what are we feeling in the moment and what are we going to do about it. 

So, how are you going to take care of you and your family?  What is your plan?  Share below your thoughts, tips, or ideas.
