Episode Info:   If you’re listening in real time you’ll know that we’re half way through January now – and although New Year has well and truly gone now I’ve just made a brand new years resolution which I wanted to share with you today….and they are 2 words….self care! Now, let me explain. Over Christmas I decided to take some time off and spend it with the kids and just hang out and play and veg in front of the tv. That kind of thing. But even though I announced it to everyone I didn’t actually do that. In fact, even though I’d not booked any time with my clients I still found myself working. I wrote articles. I wrote podcast episodes, I caught up with people, I planned things, I sketched out new training programmes all whilst I had moments to spare in my day. So when January came round and things were going back to normal, I really didn’t feel like I’d had a break at all. In fact I felt more tired than ever – and then when I was thumbing through a magazine in an office somewhere 2 words jumped out of the page to me - self care! Now, I know I’m not the only one that tries to catch up when we have some down time. Whether that’s catch up with work or things around the house. So – when I saw the words self care in this magazine it really struck a chord with me…and although I have to say I feel like I’m OK at looking after myself I found myself really thinking about what this means for me – and this is what today’s podcast is about posing the question what does self care mean for you? Every one of us is different, and we all have different things going on. Things that take up our day and stuff that we have to do. So, when we’re talking about self care it really has to be right for us and our needs and able to fit in and work with our day cos it’s got to be a habit and for it to become a habit we’ve got to do it regularly and to do it regularly it’s so much easier if it doesn’t feel like a major chore. So if this is something that you know you should have on your to do list. Before you dive in have a think about what it actually means for you so you’ve more chance of making it work. But for today, I want to share my tips on self care and what I plan to do –just to give you a starter for ten.  Don’t forget I’d love to hear your thoughts, tips, ideas and suggestions.
