Self-care benefits you and the people around you. When your needs are being met on a regular basis, you’re better able to take care of others. Your proverbial well is full versus being empty which gives you the strength and ability to do everything that is being asked of you.
If you haven’t taken some time out of your weekly schedule for just you, now is as good of time as any to make self-care a priority. You don’t have to block off hours of time each day to benefit from a self-care practice. You do, however, need to make a commitment to yourself, your family, friends, and co-workers to do your best to take good care of your physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, and financial well-being.
Here are some self-care tips that benefit the mind, body, and soul:
- Start a compliment jar. Every time you start to feel overwhelmed and think that negativity is setting in, pay yourself a compliment. Write it down on a piece of paper and store it in a jar where you can pull it out and read it again when you need inspiration.
- Take long baths. Water is therapeutic. Rather than shower, fill your tub with warm water and some luscious bubble bath. Lean your head against your bath pillow and soak your cares away.
- Take a mini retreat. Pack a bag and get away for the day even if it’s only a trip to the park you take. Spend some time doing the things you love like reading, journaling, and taking photographs. Sip your favorite beverage and take in all the sights and sounds around you.
