It’s not always easy to find time for yourself. As a result, you press on and make excuses. You’ll do it when you “have the time”, as though time will magically appear someday on your schedule. Besides, self-care isn’t really very important, is it?
This kind of mindset is based on flawed thinking on two points. First, self-care has to take a lot of time. Second, self-care doesn’t really matter. The problem is we tend to think of self-care in terms of indulgence. As though a little time out for ourselves somehow translates into partying all weekend, or a trip to the Bahamas. If so, you’re not even close.
Self-care is about doing what’s best for you.
It’s doing something to knock a little stress out of your day. So, while fantasy vacations sound great, the reality is much closer to taking a walk in the fresh air. Or drinking more water, not more alcohol.
Nor does it involve a huge time investment. In fact, you can try any one of these quick tips right now, to make self-care a priority in your life.
With self-care, the key is consistency. Doing something right for yourself today isn’t going to be enough to carry you through for the rest of the month, or even this week. You need to constantly be on the lookout for opportunities to practice self-care.
The good news? Most of these items are so easy they’ll quickly become habits. This is where the magic happens, where you feel good inside and out, no matter what you’re doing today.
