    Such an important point about exercise- I haven’t been doing well with that in the last few weeks, which makes me sad since I did so well earlier this summer! And so glad your mom is okay 🙂

    Glad to hear your mom is doing well! It really is so important that we check in with ourselves regularly and it’s something we’ve been working on. Taking a few minutes a day can be so helpful!

    This is so important and if I were to be really honest with myself, I don’t think I’ve been doing a grat job checkin in with myself. Thanks for the reminder!

    So sorry to hear about your Mom’s surgery, Dana! I hope she’s feeling better 🙂 You’re so right about the importance of taking care of yourself. Running on empty doesn’t help anyone. I like your suggestions to take 20 minutes for yourself each day and to exercise. I started going to walks in the evening, and while it’s not intense exercise, it’s so relaxing. Perfect way to reflect and recharge. Thanks for sharing!!!!

    Great post. I agree with taking 20 minutes everyday to check in with yourself. Those moments spent in self care can make the world of difference

    It is so important to check on your mental health often. You definitely can not pour from an empty cup!
