I’ve always had an unfortunate tendency to carry stress in my shoulders and back. Whenever I feel tense about a situation or person for an extended period, I can feel it build up and up until I can hardly bear it.
My shoulders feel like triple knots, shooting small bolts of pain down my right arm, head and lower back. Ugh!!
The minute I walk into my home though, half of my pain melts away and I can feel my body sigh in relief. I open up my art journal and a teeny bit more dissolves away as I get lost in colors and shapes. I am so happy I made time for this over the last few days.
Tomorrow, I’m taking the day off work to do a bit more self care. A long session of yoga for my back, time with my beautiful guys and an appointment with a massage therapist (a much needed gift from my hubby). I have a big week coming up and I want and need to be in tip-top shape.
