Why do we find it easy and natural to care for others but not ourselves? Have we chosen to give away all our love and keep none for ourselves…..
Many of us struggle with the idea of putting ourselves first, maybe we were raised to think we should always put others before ourselves and ignore our own needs, that is somehow self-centered. Ultimately, it boils down to the fact that we think others are worth more than us.
Time to take care of you! Self-care includes all the things you do to take care of your well-being in four key dimensions – your emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual health.
So why is self-care not held in high regard as the essential practice that it is for our well-being? Self care helps to prevent stress and anxiety and by incorporating self-care activities into your regular routine, you give your body and mind time to rest, reset, and rejuvenate, so you can avoid or reduce the symptoms of stress and anxiety .
From my work in counselling over the past 15 years and from my own personal experiences with lack of self care; I set myself the challenge of writing a book to help others. Including all the little tips that have helped me grow and the tips I’ve used with hundreds of clients over the years. Sometimes all it takes is one little affirmation one little action or daily challenge that can be truly life changing…..
We are all capable of amazing things and I would love you to try the 100 day challenge of being kind to yourself, maybe for the first time ever! ‘Sacred U’ –helps you build new positive habits help you connect, Supporting you to be mindful, live in the present and honour promises to yourself.
If we are confident in our love for ourselves and treat ourselves kindly, as if we are worthy, then that is what we attract back in our lives.
My book Sacred U – 100 days of Self Care is coming soon!
