After working 10 days in a row I needed some self care today! For me that meant sleeping in, relaxing, being quiet, and getting outside in nature. 🙂
Along my path I’ve learned that when I’m taking care of myself on a daily basis I am my best for myself, my family, friends, community, and job. To me that means emotional, mental, and physical well being. My job requires me to be physically strong, friendly and conversational, and utilize mental energy almost nonstop. And although I love what I’m doing and these qualities mostly come naturally to me the work can be challenging and exhausting at times. It’s important for me to believe in what I do, trust I’m making a positive impact, and creating my best lifestyle. I’m fortunate to work for an amazing company with a truly loving and supportive culture. Both of which are not only helpful, but important to me in the process of creating my best lifestyle focused on self care.
Why am I sharing this with you? Because I believe by sharing we have the opportunity to inspire, encourage, and support each other. Practicing self care is the place to set a firm foundation for being our best in all areas of our lives.
What does self care look like to you? How does your self care effect your ability to be your best in life for yourself, your family, your friends, your community, and your job? Do you typically practice self care on a daily basis or only when it’s necessary?
I encourage you to think about these questions. Think about your current self care practices. And join me in a conversation worth having. This is a Self Care Conversation.
