Self care is a must for your health, happiness and well-being
Self care is self love and not in a ego way – it’s not about looking in the mirror and fancying the pants off your self ha..or believing you are better than anyone else. It’s not about self indulgence or over pampering…spoiling. Although that’s okay to a certain point.
No self love is..a necessity not a luxury.
Self love is caring for yourself mind, emotions, body and soul. It’s about caring for your health, happiness and well-being. Being the best you can be not just for you but for those that you love too.
It’s about doing what’s right for you regardless of what anyone else thinks.
Be true to you.
It’s about self respect- respecting yourself when you are tired and need a rest-rest.
If you need some time-out to yourself, because life’s been busy and hectic and your overwhelmed by it all-give yourself some time-out and relax.
When you need to lighten up and have some fun because you’ve been working hard or life has become too serious – go have some fun.
Do what you need to do for you.
Self care is about kindness too. If you feel you failed at something or your not at your best then that’s okay..your human. Learn to except yourself..flaws an all. Noones perfect, your doing your best right now and that’s enough! So be kind to you.
If you don’t take good care of yourself, how can you possibly take good care of others? You can’t give what you haven’t got can you. If you are worn out, tired, unwell or miserable because you haven’t been taking care of yourself, then how on earth are you going to be at your best? How can you look after others then? I know for some of us, this is hard.. took me a long time to figure this out..without the feeling of guilt. But it really is an important lesson to learn..I learnt the hard way. I became really unwell before I ” got it “. Now I know.
” If you believe thoughs that you love deserve care, then why shouldn’t you?”
