Self Care And Getting Back Into The Zone

In March I decided the best way for me to get through the situation we found ourselves in was to indulge in small pleasures, holidays at home, virtual tours on Youtube whilst clocking up some miles on the exercise bike, good food, wine, lots of reading and craft projects of course. However once the days got shorter I didn’t feel much like working.

December was mostly about self indulgence, so January had to be about ‘my body is a temple’ to make up for the December excesses.

We have followed a healthy eating plan, mostly vegetarian, we have done dry January, we’ve walked locally when weather has permitted otherwise there’s the exercise bike and more virtual tours. I’m still allowing myself the luxury of taking breakfast back to bed and reading until it’s light , as well as little treats such as online art and craft courses. I’ve lost the weight I’d gained in December but it’s more than that, after 2 weeks I felt noticeably different, bouncing with energy, I actually wanted to get back to work.

The snowdrops were still not quite ready so I started making some leaves and fish which will be raku fired on a warmer sunny day.

Now the snowdrops were starting to bloom so I brought some indoors to enjoy for a day before taking them out to the studio for some clay work. It was only 5C out there but I soon got into the zone and the time flew by.

I am feeling quite pleased with myself for finally getting back to work and you know what, I enjoyed every minute.

Spring really is just around the corner 🙂
