It’s been quite a week, hasn’t it?
The news has been overwhelming recently, with stories of loss, craven abuse of power, sexual misdeeds and stories of utter bravery.
It’s a lot to take in, and for many of us, these stories unearth old memories that we thought we had tucked away.
So be gentle with yourself this weekend.
Here are a few ways to practice self-care and healing.
1. Find an affirmation for the week to that you can say to yourself when you need to be lifted up. This was my affirmation last week.
2. Take a deep breathe (or two or three) and let the week wash away.
3. Get outside and enjoy the autumn foliage.
4. Take an hour or two to plan out and cook some of your meals for the week. Knowing you have a plan to nourish yourself well when things are hectic can take some weight off.

6. Have a long hug with a loved one.
