It's easy for us to pile guilt on our shoulders for …. well ANYTHING these days! We carry a ton of responsibilities. When we run out of capacity to carry through on a task or commitment, that guilty feeling begins to creep in. Especially when it's something or for someone that we love.
I'm here to tell you to take that pressure OFF, especially when it comes to your self care. Didn't drink enough water today? Just acknowledge it and try again tomorrow. Too tired to read tonight? You need to SLEEP mama, close those tired eyes. The last thing that you need is to put more pressure on yourself, especially when it comes to caring for YOU (it's the OPPOSITE of what you need!).
Dropping the guilt does not mean that you are less committed to caring for your mind, body and spirit. You can be just as committed to your current self care goal of meditating daily as you were last week when you made the time each day and take a day off because it's necessary today. Drinking 5 glasses of water today doesn't mean that you failed at your goal of drinking 6 a day. I'm not telling you to shove your self care to the back seat - it's the opposite, in fact. I'm telling you that shifting your priorities is allowed to happen without feeling like you've failed yourself. I'm telling you that making room for the shift - is sometimes the best self care that you can give yourself.
When you are able to listen to what you need in any given moment or on any given day - truly listen - and realize that you need something else, and then allow that shift to happen…that is tapping into YOU and being a true, thoughtful part of the process. You're not using it as an excuse, you're not walking away from your goals. You're simply realizing that there is another self care action that will better serve you in the moment. #SelfCareGoals
I wish you a carefree week!

CRYSTAL OF THE WEEK | MOONRISE CRYSTAL BOUTIQUE
Looking to sprinkle in happy vibes? Citrine is the crystal that you want in your space! Known as the “happy stone”, citrine promotes bright energy, raises self confidence + self esteem, strengthens the intellect, stimulates self realization, attracts prosperity + success; encourages sharing, opens intuition, is emotionally balancing. It benefits the root, solar plexus + crown Chakras.
This sunny + warming stone is a joy to look at. I love to set my happy intentions with it surrounding my yoga mat or in meditation.

The new moon represents deep feminine wisdom. Engaging regularly with the moon cycles is a powerful way to become intimately connected with the phases of birth, death and rebirth. In our lives, we too are constantly moving through these cycles, seasons and changes. Connecting to and working with the moon as she cycles, creates a life of deeper meaning and more authentic connection as we are able to live a life with more awareness and intention.
Join Lisa Reeder (Wild Souls Yoga) & Jenny White (MoonRise Self Care) in a women's circle and yin yoga practice as we practice grounding techniques, breath work and development of our intuition. We will share space with each other to receive, connect and create. The location is at a private home, in an outdoor space in the North West Thornton area.
