Do you make time for self-care?


Taking care of your mind, body and soul should always be your priority, no matter how occupied you are with never-ending tasks or chores. If you are not taking care of yourself, and procrastinating your self-care routine, you are harming yourself. Only you can take better care of yourself and understand your requirements, be it for your physical health or emotional health. When you take care of your overall wellness, you will be able to focus better on your relationships, work, goals, and all that you do. Being content from within is essential to spread positivity around. So make it a priority to take care of yourself every day in little steps.

Your physical, emotional, and spiritual health are all connected. Taking equal care of all these areas is vital to living a healthy and purpose-filled life. When any one area of your life is affected negatively, it has an impact on the other areas too. Everyday self-care helps you stay away from such negative influences and keep heading in the right direction. When you are not able to see where you are heading, you will feel lost in life, trying to figure out your purpose and path. This will make it impossible for you to guide those around you in the right direction or help them grow in life. In order to uplift others and be an inspiration, it is imperative that you experience inner peace and stay focused in life. A self-care routine in your everyday life helps you have that inner peace and better focus despite the cares and worries of life.

A self-care routine includes different aspects such as physical activity, a healthy lifestyle, mental well-being, healthy boundaries in relationships, regular sleep routine, positive connections, hobbies, healthy social connections, and maintaining healthy relationships. There could be many barriers that could come in the way of your self-care routine, for which you may have to adjust your plan instead of giving up on your routine. Take up the responsibility to take care of yourself, avoid unhealthy lifestyle choices, and make better choices for your well-being.

    Great Reminder Rancy. How busy I am I generally have some self care which is taking care mind, body and soul. I love to workout, taking care of my skin and relax. I also started to tell no to the things which doesn’t need my immediate attention. I will make sure that I get my ME time whenever possible.

      Thank you for reading my post, and sharing your thought.
      It’s good to know that you make time for workout and relaxation.
      Saying NO to what doesn’t need your attention is a great way of taking care your wellbeing.

  2. Having a routine for self-care, no matter whether it’s for a few minutes each day, is so important — we have to make sure we take care of ourselves. During a time of intense, prolonged stress I didn’t do that and my physical and mental health suffered. Self-care is vital — thanks for the reminder!
