In celebration of love month, we are going to talk all things self-care. Self-care for the body. Self-care for the heart. Self-care for the mind.
Self-care can feel a little fluffy, abstract and indulgent. But when you check out the definition below it is anything but those.
We care for our homes. We care for our kids and pets. We care for our friends and family. We care for our clothes and cars but often we don't care for ourselves with the same intention.
Self-care is less about massages (which count too) and more about setting boundaries and protecting your energy.
Self-care is implementing preventative and maintenance practices as opposed to responding with self-care when things get hard.
Self-care is doing what you need to be your best self in whatever form that looks like.
Today's homework is taking inventory on your current beliefs about self-care and how you currently work self-care into your daily life. Here are some questions to ask yourself.
What is my definition of self-care?
How am I implementing self-care in my daily life?
Do I respond with self-care when things are bad or do I lead my life with it?
On a scale of 1-10 how important is self-care to me?
Am I honoring that importance in the way I show up for myself?
We are going to dig in this month and put some structure around self-care so that you can continue to kick ass in your life without the burn out and frustration.
Self-care is 100% necessary for us to show up as ourselves and live our truest life. You deserve it.
