Get your sweat on: walk, run, yoga…
As I mentioned last week, I’m doing a self-care challenge this February with a little help from my friends. 🙂 I did more digging into what self-care is and want to share why you don’t need to make purchases to take care of yourself.
Reading Self Care 101 on the Girl Boss website shifted my perspective on self-care big time. I often associate self-care with buying things but it isn’t the only or even the best way to practice it.

Luxurious or large proclamations aren’t necessary to practice daily self-care. It’s all about the intention behind our actions really. Of course healthy food, fitness memberships, and workout gear will cost something but I’m talking about using a purchase as an excuse to delay working out (I’m so guilty of this!). I’ve rationalized starting yoga only once I buy a new pair of yoga pants, haha. Just YouTube yoga, lay down a towel, and move those hips to downward dog, chica!
Self-care prompt: walk, run, yoga…
So let’s get our sweat on this week. Especially with it being a week full of love, however that shows up for you, go for it. You might not even need new gear. 😉 This time of year is SO HARD for me to simply MOVE and it definitely effects my mind, body, well-being in a nasty way. I have a few more days of my yoga membership at Funky Buddha Yoga Hothouse so I’ll be sweating it out there, taking Tiger for long walks, and a fun dance class with a few girlfriends that I always feel amazing after doing.
Let me know if you’re doing it with me by tagging a photo or story of your workout with #iamlovingme on Instagram. I’d love to cheer you on. 🙂
Have a great week! xo, Em
