First, calling all Menu Plan hosts! I will be away for a few days without computer or phone access, so if someone can host, please let me know before Sunday.
Our July Self-Care retreat has been rolling along, and I’m really enjoying it. Valerie of City Life Eats kicked off with a post on self-care through movement, I hosted on reflection and meditation and shared some of my favorite meditation resources. Wendy of Celiacs in the House posted on Self Care through Food, and our latest posting is from Shirley of Gluten Free Easily has a great post on Self-Care through Friends, Family and Pets! Of course, it’s also helped me keep a broader range of self-care on my radar, especially the ways that I’m much less practiced.
If you’re so inclined, we’d love to have you join us, and we’ve got Iris of the Daily Dietribe lined up for our final week, for self-care through creativity.
This virtual self-care retreat is to inspire you all to make July a month of reflecting on self-care and the many ways to nourish ourselves. We encourage everyone to participate in this event in a way that feels appropriate to them, whether through personal reflection, journal or other self-care. If you would like to share your experience with self-care, we would love to include you in the experience, whether you join us for one week or every week. You can write generally about self-care, or focus on one of the themes (movement, food, family/friends/pets, creativity and meditation and mindfulness), or write every week about each of the themes. We ask that you link back to this post so that more people can learn about this retreat, and leave a comment for the weekly theme host, too!.
