Self care
28 Aug 2023

How do you comfort yourself? I was in physical discomfort the other day and ‘caught’ myself stroking my legs in an effort to feel better. Since the legs weren’t the issue, I realised I must be self-soothing.

Dad taps on the table-top. His Mother used to clap and sing gently to herself… particularly moving since she was blind and this really seemed to comfort her. I sing to myself most of the time.

So, what would you recommend? If you sing to yourself, have you noticed any tunes that keep coming up?  Mozart is a regular!

Let’s share today multiple ways through which we can be our own best friend.
