Relationship Minute: Take time to check in

Here are suggestions of four questions to check in with yourself: 

  • How can I give myself permission to accept joy in moments of sorrow? 
  • What are ways I can cultivate stillness into my daily life? 
  • Have I been moving the negative energy out of my body? How can I tend to my vessel? 
  • How can I honor my anger? 

Self-care is important, especially in times of collective overwhelm. If you aren’t tending to your own experience with awareness, it’s harder to connect with and love others.

What does self-care look like for you? It doesn’t have to be a bubble bath or a mud mask, as nice as those may be.

How can you create time for yourself to take stock? If you are undertaking the work of confronting your own biases, how can you do that with self-compassion?
