Self-Care is …
Self-care refers to any activity that we engage in to maintain and nourish our health, including mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing.
While it may seem like an obvious concept, self-care often gets cast aside for more pressing priorities such as work, family, and the everyday pressures of life.
Here is why you should prioritize self-care though:
✔️ Improves mood
Investing time in your own care can have a major impact on your mood, leading to greater optimism and positivity.
Self-care helps you to be the best person you can be, which in turn has a positive impact on your relationships.
✔️Decreases risk of burnout
We all lead busy lives and regular investment in self-care is necessary to avoid burnout. v
✔️Makes you become more present
Spending time managing yourself allows you to become more present and engaged with your surroundings.
Self-care is often seen as indulgent when in actual fact it can have a much broader impact.
✔️Increases quality of life
By helping you to be healthier, have better relationships, and be more present, self-care allows you to live a more fulfilling life.
This is HOW to prioritize self-care
There are some small ways you can prioritize self-care. Even if you are busy, find 5 to 10 minutes that you can have to yourself. What will help you feel special and taken care of? Is it reading a book? Listening to a podcast? Meditating? Taking a hot shower?
Just last month I bought a new loofah. A simple, nothing special loofah. But that evening I felt so pampered and loved by simply spending a couple of bucks on a brand new loofah.
Self-care isn’t neglecting your responsibilities. It isn’t even being selfish. Or indulgent. Self-care is taking care of yourself so that you can give the best of yourself to the people you love.
Carve out 5 to 10 minutes today. Make a daily date with yourself and keep it. Do something for yourself. Repeat. Enjoy :).
