Self Care is a Practice

IMG-9026

Here I am on the path at the beginning of some much needed self care in the form of a walk in nature. My absolute favorite way and place to practice self care! This walk almost didn’t happen today, and when I say much needed, that means it didn’t happen many days prior to today. I’ve been working on a big project over the past few months focused on self care and the benefits of practicing self care. And in the process, well… I haven’t been following my own advise of practicing self care on a regular basis. I’ve told myself I didn’t have the time when I’ve previously experienced making the time gives me more energy to focus on my project and the goal of completing it. Does this sound familiar to anyone?!

There’s a balance between being focused, working hard, and pushing yourself to reach a goal or dream and taking care of yourself in the process. Taking care of yourself so you can actually enjoy the process and then make it to the goal without getting burnt out, completely exhausted, or sick along the way. Self care has to come first and is the foundation which provides the best energy, focus, and ability to reach goals and dreams. The balance between working towards goals and dreams and taking care of yourself in the process is the practice of self care.

What activities, hobbies, and places are your favorite for practicing self care? I encourage you to think about this and find a balance that works best for you. And then continue to take action steps on your path practicing and discovering what works best for you on a daily and weekly basis for balance through ups and downs and successes and failures. All in the process of working and reaching towards your daily goals and bigger dreams.

I look forward to staying connected and sharing more along my path to encourage and inspire you on your path. šŸ™‚

Until next time, Laura Li Lifestyle
