With nothing but on the go, non-stop pressures of life, most of us forget to sit back and actually take care of ourselves. The self-care movement has been gaining traction in the past year or two and deserves some time in the spotlight. By taking some time to genuinely check in with ourselves, assess our mood and address our needs we can start to become more productive and happier humans. This recap emphasizes the importance of consistency in this routine.
- If you’re not aware of what your body and spirit need today, you may end up just reproducing a routine rather than attending to your real needs.
- Working too hard for too long can lead to a mental, physical and spiritual sense of burn out.
- Treat each day like a miniature life, complete with the opportunity to be as alive as possible.
“There are no right or wrong answers when it comes to self-care—only what’s right for you in a given moment based on what you’re feeling and what you need. So, create a judgment-free space for yourself. Be kind, loving, and compassionate to yourself, and honor your varied needs.”
