I’m 40. No really, I am!

April fools

At 40 years old I am told time and time again that I appear much younger than my actual age, and I attribute this to my self-care. More often than not – we as women get obsessed with our outer beauty, and we tend to neglect the area where true beauty lies – and that is within.

Taking care of yourself from the inside out, is not only beneficial to your outer beauty, but critical for your overall long-term health.

If you don’t know where to start with your self-care, here is my simple acronym that will get you started on the right track to a good balance in your life – it’s called: Savvy Me!

The acronym Savvy Me stands for:

S- (Sleep)sleep 6 to 8 hours per night
A- (Alkalize) your body (EAT CLEAN)
V- (Vitamins) take the vitamins that your body specifically needs
V- (Validation) Validate your loved ones. Schedule 1 to 1 time with your spouse, kids, etc.
Y- (You) Your purpose – what is it? Fuel your mind for 15 min/a day w/something that fuels your soul.
M- (Meditation) Meditate to gain clarity, relax, prevent anxiety & hear God’s voice
E- (Exercise) Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day

Remember, self-care is not a luxury, it is a necessity. You will be a better spouse, mother and overall kick ass super hero because of it.

  • Kenia, you are such an inspirational being. I have fallen in love with your blog and I intend to for as long as you continue to write. I too lost a partner, not to death but to another woman -yet the grief was very similar. It’s been almost 5 years, since we parted ways. I’ve gone through everything from depression/anxiety to despair, and denial to healing and acceptance. Thanks for sharing your journey with others. It’s appreciated.

    • Claudia, thank you for your beautiful words and taking the time to share your story. I pray that God provide you continued peace on your journey. I completely understand how a divorce can feel like a death. It is never easy, and nothing can prepare you for such a loss – but I do believe that your story is far from over – and although we can’t reverse time….a new kind of wonderful awaits. God bless you.
