March Self-Care Guide
A brand new month - the last month of quarter one - is upon us.
I don’t know if it’s just me but it seems time moves really quick these days. It was just yesterday when the year started, with schools opening and businesses and workplaces starting up again at almost full capacity since the COVID-19 lockdown initially started.
I recall having to start work in January and feeling so exhausted as if I hadn’t been on leave at all. At work, although I continued to work from home, I literally hit the ground running. Preparing for my daughter’s school day also added to the pressure. Listen, waking up at 5am every morning is no joy for me because I love my sleep. I always wish to sleep a little longer, especially on those days when wrestled with insomnia throughout the night. Anyway, I have slowly found my rhythm, my body and mind have acclimatised and it’s not so bad anymore.
With so much happening around us, March presents an opportune time for us to reflect, rewire, and readjust our focus. For instance, if you’ve set goals for yourself at the beginning of the year, this period is a time to sit and review how your first quarter went. Think about what you’ve done, achieved, lessons learnt, and what moves you need to make in quarter 2 to get closer to your goal(s).
The first two months of the year are always high-pressure months and as such, we can neglect other important aspects of our lives, which contribute to the essence of who we are. With that in mind, I put together a March Self-Care guide for you and I.
