That turned into quite the Thanksgiving vacation! By the time my train pulled into Chicago, I knew I was going to need at least a couple more days to get back into the swing of things. I have a very hard time keeping up with my self-care routine when I’m not at home. I finally felt like myself again over the weekend, but of course then I had clients! Anyway, it’s good to get back to the blog.
I’ve mentioned before that one of the ways I’m taking better care of myself is by doing almost all of my own cooking, and mostly from scratch. I have a couple of blogs that I check regularly to get recipes when I’m stuck. I’ve noticed that many of the highly visible voices in cooking (and I think wellness in general) belong to people who seem to be pretty financially comfortable. I don’t know any of them personally, it’s just the impression that I get. What about people of more limited resources who are looking to improve their health and well-being?
Starting next year, I plan to write one post per month that focuses on free or low-cost ways to improve self-care. As a wellness adventurer on a budget, I feel pretty equipped to discuss this. I’d like to share some of the ways I’ve improved my own sense of well-being, and I hope that you will share what you do as well. Look for the “Adventuring on a Budget” category for this series. Because wellness is for everybody.
