When I put the turmeric in the fridge and the coconut milk in the cupboard this morning, I knew that after an incredibly productive week and weekend, it was time for a day at home.
Radio off. Phone off. Tea kettle on. Lists of everything that needs to be done get written out so the unlimited tasks can stop swirling around in my head and live on paper instead. My workspace and house get organized. Everything gets put away. The plants get watered. I make sure to take a few minutes to admire our garden and to watch the quiet street outside the window. I enjoy the fresh green leaves finally erupting and I take in the peacefulness of a morning after a Spring rain.
Listen to yourself and give your soul what it needs.
By taking care of yourself, you take care of your partner, your neighbor, your family.
