What is Self-Care?
Self-care is to deliberately take care of your mental and physical health. How do you take care of yourself and be kind to yourself?
Self-care should not be treated as reward, but as a way of life. It's a gift we give ourselves by honouring our bodies and souls. It helps us create moments dedicated to our wellbeing and allows us to express love for ourselves.
Why you need a self-care practice?
We neglect ourselves so much because we are too busy (not making time for it) or because we think we don't deserve it.
We need to treat ourselves with love and respect because when you give your body what it needs, be it rest, nutritious foods, exercise, or just a long warm bath, your body will start working for you. It will be capable, it will feel better, which will allow you do do more with your day!
Same goes for your mind. If you don't take the time to care for what it inside your head, you'll be in bad shape. You might be extra tired, or unmotivated, stressed out or even depressed or anxious. It's really important to clear your ind and treat it with care if you want to feel good.
What is the goal of self-care?
The goal of establishing a self-care practice is to create moments dedicated to your wellbeing as often as possible. It's about making your needs come first. You want to create a daily self-care practice even if you might not need the same things each day. Do things for yourself, for your wellbeing everyday.
