What does nurturing yourself after a relationship break mean for you? You may have a different idea about it than I have.
Self-care for me is that I simply do what I always wanted to do when I was in a relationship but never had the chance to do. I am a independent woman and love doing my own things. That includes travelling on my own, going to the cinema on my own or even having lunch in a nice restaurant on my own.
When you have been in a long term relationship you can loose your independency. You feel as if you are suddenly disconnected and feel lonely.
This is exactly the time to reconnect with yourself and start nurturing yourself with what you really fancy.
Is self nurturing just a bubble baths? Would you book yourself a spa day on Wowcher? Do you love evenings alone with candle light? Or are you the girl you watches Netflix all evening and indulge in lots of chocolate and proseco? I am all of that and I love it. I need those little things to recharge my batteries. I need those little pick me up rituals in order to understand that my life without a man is great. What about you?
If you have a busy work schedule I suggest that you take your diary and make an appointment with yourself. Cross out a certain time once a week and do what you want to do.
Create an evening ritual before you go to bed. You could meditate and write a gratitude journal thanking the angels what you are grateful for. Think about the good things that have happened during the day.
Go for an evening walk, go the an evening yoga class or jojn a local meetup group. Organise your own meetup group.
Put your phone away when catching up with friends. Consider having a one evening per week a TV and internet free evening. Do something else instead or go to sleep early.
Wear a beautiful dress. Put on makeup and a matching lipstick. Dress up just for you. You will increase your confidence and you will shine your light. The better you feel and look the easier you will make new friends.
After a relationship break up you may have a bit of anxiety and worry issues. That is only too normal. Don't worry about what your colleagues and family are thinking about your break up. Life will shine on you again and you will fall in love again too. Choose your own path and make your own plans for the future. It is YOUR future and not the future of your friends and family.
