Summer months can disrupt our usual routines. Instead of letting “me time” fall by the wayside, use these months to strengthen your self-care routine. To prevent being overwhelmed by a crazy day, or even a crazy month, I focus on one minute at a time. Any minute is an opportunity for self-care. When you’re heading out the door, grab a few of your favorite pick-me-ups. I bring my homemade drip coffee, the trail mix I love and my PinkSugar perfume. It sounds too easy, but there’s no greater way to care for yourself than such reminders of how good it feels to feel good. When you’re faced with making a decision that could either pull you away from your wellness goals or inch you toward them, your pick-me-ups may be just the reinforcement you need to keep on target.
