Discovering the Best Form of Self-Care: My Morning Walks with My Dog

I just realized how my morning walks with my dog are the best forms of self-care I could ever ask for. It's incredible how an hour in the woods, no matter the time of day, can bring such profound benefits. This simple routine has become a sanctuary for me, offering a time for reflection and an opportunity to truly connect with myself and nature.

For the longest time, I didn't consider these walks as self-care. They were just a part of my daily routine. But now, I see them for what they are: a precious hour where I can refresh, reflect, and recharge. It's amazing how something so simple can have such a significant impact on my well-being.

Self-care isn't about grand gestures or elaborate plans. It can be anything that brings you joy and allows you to breathe and reflect, free from external worries. It might be sitting on on the sofa watching Netflix, sneaking off to the car to play a quick game of chess, or even just sitting on the loo for a few extra minutes on tiktok. These small moments of comfort and joy, things we do out of habit, can also be considered self-care.

I've come to understand that self-care is highly personal. What works for me might not work for you, and that's perfectly okay. The key is to recognize and embrace the activities that make you feel good and help you disconnect from the stresses of daily life.

I encourage you to take a closer look at your own habits. What are the little things you do that bring you comfort and joy? These might be the very acts of self-care you need to prioritize. Whether it's a morning walk with your dog, a quiet cup of coffee before the house wakes up, or a few minutes of meditation, find those moments and cherish them.

Self-care is about taking the time to nurture yourself, in whatever way feels right for you. So, take a moment today to think about your habits and routines. Identify the ones that make you feel good and embrace them as your unique form of self-care. You deserve it.
