I find myself in need of caffeine. A lot.

Surprisingly, some blogs I read have made mention of caffeine. For anyone in need of caffeine resources, here you go.

The Caffeine Database
Better ways to use caffeine

Yep, this is where I am now. I don't want to think about how much caffeine is in my system.

It's been awhile since I've worked full time in a congregation. This time of year is where I remember self-care. How do we work in congregations and take care of ourselves?
I usually swing toward too much self care or no self care. I've never found that balance.
How or what are your ideas for self care? What do you do for self care?

What a great question! Boy I wish I had a great answer. Here's what I'm trying to do this year: block out one hour a day for prayer/exercise (hopefully together, but not always). Of course ,simply putting something on my calendar doesn't mean it gets done. All too often of late, that hour ends up being the time I book for someone who couldn' tmeet at any other time... which doesn't say much for my self care!

Yeah, I've done that/did that....
When I was in a congregation, I blocked out Mondays. Suprisingly, people respected that, and I really did respect that. I was in a situation where I could do that. I'm hoping I can reinstate that soon.
