Mindfulness Monthly Memos

September Issue | Self-Care

September’s Mindfulness Monthly Memo focuses on self-care and accepting ourselves for who we are.  No one is perfect, yet we often expect ourselves to be!  When we learn to accept ourselves, we will likely be happier and better at learning and growing.  Developing self-compassion skills, a better understanding of our strengths, how to use these more, and ways to work with or around our weaknesses can all positively impact our happiness.  Here are a few tips to try this month to boost your self-care and self-acceptance:

  1. At the end of the day, notice three points of pride or success you had that day, no matter how insignificant they may seem.
  2. When something goes wrong, remind yourself that we all need to be real, not perfect.  Look for what you can learn from the situation.
  3. Incorporate movement into your routine.  We should aim to move our bodies at least 20-30 minutes daily, ideally outside if possible.

Taking care of ourselves is an investment in our well-being and valuing ourselves and others.  Self-care isn’t selfish, you can’t pour from an empty cup!

We hope you find this month’s resources and wellness events helpful in supporting your self-care journey.
