We should not underestimate the impact of the small things we do for ourselves each day. Often we don’t even think about them, especially if they are part of a daily routine and we have done them repeatedly over time.
Making oneself a cup of tea or coffee is actually an act of self care but one that frequently gets swallowed-up by busy-ness, routine and/or habit. If we slow it down and put aside ample time to enjoy the process of making and drinking it, all of a sudden having a cuppa has become a little bit of me-time and an opportunity to nurture oneself.
Taking the cup of tea one step further, why not prepare a healthy snack?
So many snacks we find in shops are sugar-rich, nutrition-poor so organising a treat that fills us, nourishes us and tastes great can leave us feeling really good about ourselves.
It doesn’t need to be gourmet - some favourite fruits and a herbal tea are fantastic: lots of antioxidants, vitamins, fluid and calming herbs. Done! Drop me a line if you’d like some snack-spiration! 😆😋
