Can you believe it's September already? I do love this time of year - the vibrant colours, the crisp in the air, fall clothes... it's time to start planting seeds for the year to come.
One seed that we all need to plant and nurture is the seed of self-care. Self-care is such an incredibly broad topic however we're going to break it down to this one concept - take time to figure yourself out.
After a particularly difficult breakup, it's easy to get yourself into an analytical mode where you're meticulously scrutinizing everything your ex said & did throughout your entire relationship; especially towards the end. Was there something that you missed that could've prevented this crushing heartbreak that you're feeling right now?
Take that urge to analyze your relationship to death and shift that attention to YOU. How are YOU feeling? How are YOU coping? Never mind your ex - they can take care of themselves.
Maybe it's the first time in your life that you've even considered your own well-being. Facing yourself can be daunting but here's one key thing things you can do to begin to figure yourself out after a breakup: write in a journal.
Journaling is an amazing way to help you process what's on your mind.
Get yourself a journal. I'm talking about an actual journal with paper pages where you have to use a pen to write in it. No apps on your phones, people.
Write down every thought that's in your head in your journal. Don't censor yourself. If it's driving you nuts, then write it down.
Do this daily for the next 7 days and see how you feel. Have you ever kept a journal before? Post your thoughts in the comments below.
