“Self-care is not about self-indulgence, it is about self-preservation.” ~ Audre Lorde
I believe that when we take time to better take care of ourselves, we take better care of the important people in our lives. Life is busy and life is fast but pausing to focus on ourselves can lead to feeling more balanced, peaceful and fulfilled. However it’s much easier said than done. That’s why Solera Self-Care offers workshops and retreats to support you in your pursuit for self-care and self-renewal.
FALL IS THE PERFECT TIME TO SLOW DOWN AND SELF-REFLECT
As much as I love the beautiful weather that summer brings, every year I find myself feeling slightly relieved when it's over. I find myself running around more than normal and trying to fit in activities, vacations, social obligations, and relaxation time into those short 12 weeks...half of which are usually too hot or too rainy. Fall, on the other hand, is like the second "new year". It gives us a second chance at reconnecting with ourselves, our goals, and our priorities...much like our new year resolutions. Even as an advocate of self-care, I sometimes need a reboot in my own self-care habits. So as the weather turns cooler, I intend to quiet down with a hot beverage in hand; play games with my kids and be more present with them; and prepare nourishing meals rather than eating on the run so that I can take care of my physical well-being.
There are so many aspects of self-care and you cannot go about it wrong. There are a million small and significant ways to practice self-care, and the best ways are always the ones that honor your true self. To help you figure out what works for you, Solera is offering a number of Personal Renewal Workshops in 2019. These two-hour mini retreats are a group life-coaching program for people at all stages of life. Topics include the power of self-care, managing your energy, saying “no” and asking for help. Check out the workshop schedule!
Solera is all about providing you the space and tools to find more balance and fulfillment in your life, whatever that looks like for you. All of Solera’s offerings are done as group circles, because while the self-care journey can be done solo, coming together with a group who are all on the same quest is powerful and transformative.
