Focusing on self care is massive and something that needs to be practiced every single day.
Self care isn't the trip to the mall to shop or getting your nails done. I'm talking real, true self care that needs to be addressed every day of your life.
When we practice self care, we are becoming more in tune with ourselves. With our mind and body.
Real self care is waking up and checking in, really considering how you are feeling in that moment.
It's checking in throughout the day and seeing if your needs are met.
When we check in, it's important to ask ourselves the questions like "are my needs met, how am I feeling today, where is my stress level at, am I hungry, how can I improve that, what needs to happen today to make a positive shift"
Self care is picking up a book, listening to a podcast or doing a course to increase your awareness and better serve you. It's doing the personal growth development and making the time for that because it's insanely important.
It's also knowing that it's ok to take time to slow down and rest. That having that mid afternoon nap doesn't make you a failure in that day but makes you appreciate yourself for taking the time to notice what your body needs and fuel it in that particular way.
It's trying something new. Understanding yourself and what you need moment by moment by moment. Everyday for you and no other.
