The Artist’s Way Challenge-Give From Your Overflow

Hello love and welcome back to my space! Day 13 of The Artist’s Way Challenge down!!! Although I want to go back and completely re-do Day 11( and I just might), I’m glad I didn’t give up! It was touch and go! The pressure was ON! Today has been the opposite. I’ve been leisurely doing everything at the pace of a turtle and I don’t even mind. There was laundry piling up. The kitchen needed a deep clean and of course we are still rolling along with this challenge. After doing a bunch of random stuff around the house, I finally sat down to write and share Day 12 shenanigans.

My movement message of the day was tied to a video that I saw on Instagram of a granddaughter asking her 102 year old grandmother what was the tip or secret to living a healthy life and she said loving yourself. I believe this to be so true. I know for women especially of past generations, its been the norm to give selflessly before considering ourselves. This way of thinking can lead to resentment and burnout.

I know that our schedules are so busy these days that it can be a challenge to put ourselves first but it is one of the most important things we can do. Pouring into ourselves can look like but is not limited to:

  • Going On A Walk
  • Meditation
  • Movement
  • A Tea Ritual
  • Reading A Book
  • DeCluttering (If you don’t find this sort of thing stressful, I personal LOVE it)
  • Journaling
  • Drawing (no matter how good you are)
  • Have A Dance Party For One
  • Make A Vision Board
  • Make A New Recipe

When we take care of ourselves first, it puts us in a better position to help others! Pouring into ourselves before to start pouring into others leads to giving from our overflow! Is there anything you would add to this list?

Alright! Let’s get into these…
