Once again I’m so thankful to Becky and Michelle for hosting Reasons to be Cheerful, and reminding me to look for them: This week has been mostly about self-care to enable me to keep going as a carer.
#MagicOfOctober – this Instagram challenge from theclotheslines.ie is distracting me from other thoughts as I try to find something to fit each day’s prompt.
Bargains – chocolate counts as self-care I think, and what could be better than a bargain 10 cent bar I found in my local Tesco!
Zumba – I know I’ve mentioned Zumba before, but dancing is proven to be good for the soul, mental health, and brain health too, and it’s the one weekly fixture I hate to miss.
Running – a lot of running happened this week. Beginning with an assisted run with B on Saturday at a nearby Parkrun, when we got to test a real running buggy, and I hope to blog about that experience properly soon. On Monday I went for a run along the Royal Canal with a pal, and yesterday I was absolutely delighted with this result from a training run with my Phoenix Park running group.
Hope you have a great week xx
