on taking care of yourself


When you take good care of yourself you help everyone. You stop being a source of suffering to the world. You become a reservoir of joy and happiness. Here and there are people who know how to take care of themselves. They are our strongest support. ~Thich Naht Hanh

Jacob and the team at Cabanas La Luna as well as the Barefootworks team took very good care of us too.

Muchas gracias!

Thanks for taking us to temascal!

And thank you Martin! Yes, sweat lodge (temalzcal) was so wonderful for all of us. I've thought of that magical evening often since returning.

What a great reminder, Sharon! Our society pushes us so much towards productivity, performance, deadlines, etc... which are not necessarily bad things, but only when it's at the expense of rest and self-care. Oh, and interestingly... when leaving this comment, the word verification was "rests". Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not...

Great point Mia. I think we need a healthy balance of self care and self discipline. We all have things we want to accomplish in life, but many times it comes at the expense of one's Self.

And I LOVE the word verification you got. Seems the universe is speaking to you. :)
