The pandemic has taught us some lessons in self care. In this episode, we’re talking about what worked, the mistakes we made, and what we should have done differently.  Having to change our self care for body, mind, and spirit made us realize how important it is to maintain healthy habits.  The stress and restrictions caused by the public health emergency forced changes in our workouts.  It was difficult to be consistent in healthy activities.  We created a small workout group to increase our accountability and keep each other safe in the summer heat.  Self care of mind and spirit has had to change this year as well.  Finding ways to worship that fed our spirits made us get creative, utilizing music and time outdoors.  We made lots of mistakes and the healthy habits got set aside, making way for poor food choices, isolation, and sedentary activities.  We’re working hard to re-establish healthy habits, getting back to self care that’s positive, sustainable, and individualized.
