What did you do first to practice self care today? Was it bathroom, brushing teeth, and taking a shower? Making a healthy meal? Prayer or mediation? Some kind of movement? What are your current self care practices and activities? Is there a practice or activity you’d like to add to your schedule? Do you think self care is for others and only for you when you have the time?
What self care conversations do you have with yourself?
It’s my experience that self care is vital to living the lifestyle I desire. I’ve learned I can only be my best for me, my family, friends, and community when I focus on taking care of myself first. In addition, no matter where I am on my journey, I feel there’s always room to learn and improve.
For me this means making self care a priority on a daily basis. I eat healthy foods, avoiding the mainstream news, practicing optimism and mindfulness, spend as much time as possible in nature, incorporate movement (the above picture is of me taking the stairs), and celebrate all that life has to offer me with gratitude. One of my favorite ways to practice self care is getting out in nature and taking a walk. I also practice self love by being kind to myself during the process of continual learning and practicing. 🙂
Today, I encourage you to think about the self care conversations you’re having with yourself. The different ways to practice self care are endless and it’s a good thing we have so many options since there are so many of us. What have you found that works best for you so far? What inspires you, brings you joy, and supports you emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually?…
Is it a particular diet? Thinking beyond food and considering books you read, what you watch on television, and people you have contact with… Does it include a certain type of exercise? Walking, yoga, biking? Regular massage? Quiet time? Vacation time? Church? A favorite hobby or activity? A certain amount of sleep each night? Taking action on a goal or dream? Following your passions?…
