Self-Care Retreat Roundup

It’s mid-August, and about this time I realize how I wish summer could go on just 4 or 5 months more…and that our  self-care retreat could go on a few more months, too!  It has been such fun working with and getting to know Valerie of City|Life|Eats and our wonderful guest hosts, Wendy of Celiacs in the House, Shirley of Gluten-Free Easily and Iris of Daily Dietribe

Here are the highlights (and if we missed your post, please let me know!)

Movement, hosted by Valerie

Reflection, hosted by Cheryl

Food & Nourishment, hosted by Wendy of Celiacs in The House

Nourishment through Friends, Family and Pets, hosted by Shirley of Gluten-Free Easily

Nourishment Through Creativity, hosted by Iris of The Daily Dietribe

I loved this retreat.  It gave me extra incentive to take wonderful care of my body–it felt like an extra special homework assignment. I often feel like I have 101 reminders to work, to do, to rush, to whatever, and I appreciated the extra opportunity to explore self-care in a different way.  I mean, I often think about the food and meditation parts, but tend to ignore the creativity and movement parts. And I actually started water walking.  Granted, I’m doing a teeny tiny amount, but I absolutely love the experience of moving my body again.

I truly appreciate all of our glorious hosts, everyone who commented, everyone who thought about commenting, and most of all, Valerie, for making this happen!  We hope to do this again in a few months, too.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    What a fabulous series, Cheryl (and Valerie!). And thanks for posting this so I can go back and read the ones I missed!

  2. This was truly a wonderful series. It made me focus on things that are important to think about but often relegated to the back burner. Thanks so much.
