for our family, it is the last week of summer vacation. my husband starts back tomorrow and the school year gets into full swing next tuesday. rest might not be as much as an option as things rev up for the transition, so remember to take what little pockets of time you can find to refuel during this last week of the month.
sometimes it is hard to know what it is exactly that you need, what it is that will give you the extra oomph to keep you afloat all of the daily chaos, and rest is also synonymous with taking care. the goal is not necessarily to take a nap (unless that is what you truly need), the goal is to give yourself whatever it is that you are most in need of at that time and often it takes a bit of slowing down ad quiet to be able to listen for what that is.
asking yourself “what do you need?”, out loud or at least in your head and then stopping for a moment to think about that question will help clear the space for that answer to appear. giving yourself the permission to have what that is, is the next step.
this printable coupon i though would be a fun way to embrace and honor a little self-nurturing, and it’s for you to use during this coming week. cut it out and put it in your planner or on your refrigerator and use it when you need to! you might even pass one on to your kids or anyone else who might like to indulge in a bit of restful self care.
ease into the transition, rest and enjoy!
