When I think about self-care, an important factor for me is to slow things down. This looks like taking time to absorb every moment and truly choose joy.
Recently I bought a wall decor piece that said, ” Hygge. A Danish word for taking pleasure from the simple cozy things and the company of friends.” The words on this frame are a written description of how I aim to live life.
Along with spending time in the company of friends, something I love even more is creating memories with my family. This weekend my family and I took an impulsive trip to Masker Orchards in Warwick New York. On this adventure, we picked over four dozen apples and took in the fresh air and nature. It was absolutely wonderful and I saw no better way of spending my Sunday!
“So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.”
