Hopefully you are ready to take the self-care challenge this summer with us and now you just need some tips to get you started.  Well we are so excited to have found The Freedom Experiment blog.  It’s full of great posts and personal stories of self care and self-compassion.  I especially liked the post 55 Gentle Ways to Take Care of Yourself When You’re Busy Busy Busy – I love it because it’s a great list and because I know that most of you {much like me} are often busy, busy, busy!  While I would encourage you to go and check out the full post right now  I also wanted to make it even simpler for you.  So starting today and everyday for the next 55 weekdays we will be tweeting one simple, gentle way to take care of yourself for the day all courtesy of @Marthehhagen‘s wonderful post.  By now you should know my mantra… baby steps, baby steps, baby steps!  So by taking each of these tips one at a time you should have no trouble finding a few new ways to care for yourself this summer.

Make sure you are following us on Twitter @GTAtherapists and tell your friends and family to join you too.  What better way to surround yourself with sexy, self care than by helping the ones you love to take better care of themselves too. {can’t find us in your feed?  follow #SelfCareIsSexy to see all our self-care tweets}
