Are you one of those who thinks that once Monday rolls around, your body, mind and spirit belong to the world — work, family, friends, community — with nothing left over for you. Yes? Well, guess what? I’m on a mission to get you to think about Mondays in a whole new way. Mondays are your new ‘Self-Care’ day so you have time to take care of yourself, no matter what’s going on, to feel strong, energetic and calm for the rest of the week.
Too hard, you say? Try this: Instead of being sucked right into “life” on Monday morning, how about scheduling some “me time” to get a massage after work, a mani/pedi during lunch, a glass of wine with girlfriends, or just take a pleasant walk for an hour. There are a lot of simple “micro” ways you can create your very own ‘Self-Care Monday’ that will bring you up and brighten your day, just when you’re starting to feel overwhelmed.
This week, the amazing women of FASHION FLASH — the best online mini-mag for women 40+ — bring you lots of ideas to feel pretty and be fabulous every day of the week, starting with today — ‘SELF-CARE MONDAY‘!
