Self-Care, a new start

Dear Fellow Journalers,

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had about all I can take of the negativity, hatred, suspicion, and downright meanness exhibited in the world right now. It seems that almost everyone I meet (family, friends, and complete strangers) are affected by the destructive behaviors of others. While many may start their “New Year’s Resolutions”  to get healthy or fix relationships I decided to ” be gentle with my feelings”. I can’t fix the world but I can do something to fix some of my problems that are brought on by my reactions to the world’s chaos.

My Self-Care Journal will hopefully help in this regard. I decided to write in it all year. 2020 is not only the beginning of a new year but the beginning of a new decade, one which I hope to survive. Being a “sexy senior citizen” over the age of 70, this decade will be one of challenges and changes so what better time to start than right now!

In a way, a “Self-Care Journal encompasses every other personal journal. I decided to focus on my health first and so to that end I began my journey.  I have habits like all the rest of you! Some of mine are good, some not so much! I mean reading and eating chocolate are good, right-but probably better in moderation.

I bought a die-cut 2 weeks ago which will, I hope, help me in my creative goals and also my Self-Help goals as well. This journal has sections I can create that will divide my journey and which I will share at a later date.

For now though, I decided to take my journal to bed instead of my Kindle and set up an alarm app so that I get 7-8 hours of restorative sleep. I’m still working on the chocolate angle -maybe next week…
