Hello. Happy Tuesday, Lover!
I have rebranded my entire website and I am now officially calling myself “The Self Coach”. With that being said, I thought it would be appropriate to write a post about self care and answer some questions that you may have.
Here we go!
What Is Self Care?
Self care — a routine that you do habitually to take care of your emotional, mental, and physical needs.
Ultimately, self care is all about what you need in order to take care of self as a whole for the betterment of you. This means you must pay attention to your psycho-spiritual development and practice mindfulness.
Why Is It Important To Practice Self Care?
Are you important? Of course, you are! So it is safe to assume that caring for self is an important part of you.
Self care is an essential part of your journey in life. Psychological and spiritual practices such as journaling and meditation can help ground you. This is important to do in order to find balance, connect with your true self, and grow.
Who Can Practice Self Care?
When Is It Best To Practice Self Care?
The best time to practice self care is…whenever you need to.
There will be moments when you may need to do more for yourself and then other times you will not need to do as much. The onset of depression and anxiety can be a crucial moment when you will need to add extra things to your routine. I know from experience how easy it is to say this and how hard it is to do it.
Do your best!
Where Can You Practice Self Care?
No matter where you may go, self care should be priority. This includes saying no to things that do not serve you and your purpose in life. Setting boundaries for yourself and asking others to respect them is the best thing you can do for yourself.
How Should You Practice Self Care?
Creating your self care routine is all about being mindful of what makes you a better person. What you add to your routine now, may not serve you later, and that’s okay. Just as long as you are doing things that serve your highest good.
That’s the gist!
If you practice self care, what does that look like for you? If you are considering it, what are some things that you can do to love on yourself? If you enjoyed this post, be sure to subscribe below to receive more like this one via email.
