Because how can we possibly share our energy/love/gifts when our ‘cup’ is less than full?
The idea is not only to fill your cup with self-care items but to also actually drink from your own cup (receive self-love). This is why it is a continuous process of filling so that you become so full of energy/love/gifts they spill over onto the saucer. The love/energy/gifts you have to share is what is on the saucer because it is so much easier to share when you have left-overs. Self-care is not selfish, it is necessary!!! We have to bust that myth wide open and enjoy the things we love. When we are full we are the best version of ourselves. We are so happy and loving that we can’t help but share the good things in life. We are overflowing with them!
So what happens when our cup is less than full…?
1 an emotion characterised by feelings of tension worried thoughts and physical changes like increased BP
2 feeling of worry, nervousness unease about something with an uncertain outcome
3 strong desire or concern to do something or for something to happen
So how do we get to Now and stay there:
***Use your senses in the present moment what can you See/Feel/Hear/Taste/Smell?
***Connect with your breath Meditation/Yin yoga with Marissa at Recover Wellbeing!
3. Expectations – Do you have high expectations of yourself and others? Are you a perfectionist? Do you expect your less than full cup to spread across career, relationships, care-giving, keeping a clean home, eating right, exercising, meditating…I’m exhausted already!?! Straight up, I must confess… My name is Tessa and I am also a 'recovering perfectionist'. Just like Brené Brown I am trying to embrace being 'a good enough-ist' because life is very full and can be challenging!!
Take this moment to care for yourself. All of us need a little help sometimes! Together we will get through this.
