January is a great month to let yourself rejuvenate from the holidays and retreat for self care for the upcoming year. It’s easy to do up here in Wisconsin because it’s hard to get out with the cold & snow (well, usually). I use this month for reflection, art projects, and relaxing with my fuzzy socks.
For the Year of Creative Discovery, this is a great time to start your altered book and decide what your focus will be for the next year. We’ve worked on prepping your book so you can work on it this month. You can get your book ready as you retreat. YES – IT’S TIME FOR A CREATIVE SELF CARE RETREAT!
I try to do one retreat in January to get myself mentally, physically, and spiritually recharged. January is one of my favorite months and I look forward to it – now you can too!
A self-care creative retreat will help you refocus while being creative. This is all about you and you will decide what’s it’s going to look like. I’ll give you my suggestions so you have something to work with but the main purpose is that you spend time outside your normal routine doing only things that will nourish you.
Taking the time to get ready for your retreat gets you in the mood for taking time away. Self care is serious stuff in a fun & creative way. Sometimes it takes practice taking time for yourself, but it is essential for living your truth.
The next post will give you more ideas for your retreat day.
