Apologies about my radio silence. I am feeling refreshed restored and rebalanced after well, quite a few weeks of recharging my batteries and reflecting. No phones, no social media and no vlogging or bloging for that matter. Time to breathe and think. I needed it!
Recent unnecessary evil events around the world left me feeling shocked and heartbroken. Pausing and reflecting on what I want to do in this world to make a difference was much needed. With that in mind I know self care is underrated.
What is self care?
“Any set of practices that makes you feel nourished, whether that’s physically, emotionally, spiritually, all of the above.” Melissa A Fabello of Everyday Feminism.
Self care is different for everyone. It could mean reading a book or playing a musical instrument or exercise, yoga or meditation etc
I love September, as the long summer holidays draw to a close, the kids are back to school, it’s a fresh start. It’s my favourite time of year to get clear on what I want and how I can help you to create your killer mindset.
Part of this is knowing how to take care of yourself. After all, who will if you don’t?
Here are 3 things you can do daily to practise self care.
Appreciate YOU! Yes- without feeling guilty or selfish. Be grateful for your body when you take a walk in the park or practice yoga. Eat your favourite snack and enjoy it. And before you go to bed tonight I want you to create a sentence that other people are grateful for about YOU.
Find your passion
Remind yourself that your strengths lie within YOU. Your strengths are multidimensional; there are countless ways to view, appreciate and boost them.
Think of your strengths as your three E’s: they are essential the strength is essential to your personality, energising you feel a boost of joy or energy while using the strength, and easy the strength comes naturally to you to use, you don’t have to think about it. You have the power to make your passion and your purpose a reality.
Ask yourself ‘What is my purpose? Why am I doing what I do?’
