You may be thinking, “I don’t need self-care. That’s for people who need therapists and yoga.” Mmmmm….. Not quite.
Self care is something us mental health professionals preach and preach because surely enough, we all could use some TLC.
What does self-care look like?
A bath or shower
Curling up with your fur baby, or real baby!
Doing something that makes you feel beautiful such as buying new makeup, getting a haircut, getting your nails done
Finding a place in nature and being by yourself
Going for a walk or to a work out
So many forms of self-care! But really, it comes down to doing what re-energizes YOU.
Self care is for all of us. It’s for when our battery needs recharged. When we’ve had a bad day. When our motivation is low.
Bottom line. Self care means taking care of yourself. And we all need it.
Don’t keep pouring from your cup without refilling it. In order to be the best version of yourself and serve those around you, you must take care of yourself too. It is not selfish, it is only giving back to yourself so you can continue to brighten those around you.
