Today (& everyday), I challenge you to take take 10 minutes for yourself. No one else.
Disconnect. Turn off your phone. Do your favourite face mask.
Take a bath. Get your hair done. Read a book.
Go for a walk. Exercise. Sit & reflect.
Watch your fave TV show. Think about your goals. Jot them down.
Call a friend. Make yourself a latte & read the news.
Do a yoga class. Lie in bed & do nothing!
Self-care is one of the most necessary components of:
- living a healthy life;
- developing a healthy relationship with yourself, your mind & body;
- connecting with your inner being;
- finding ways to cope with all the stres the hustle & bustle of everyday life entails.
Ten minutes seems like nothing, right?
But this is something I struggle with SO MUCH, which is why today’s challenge really resonates with me on a personal level. It’s something I promised myself to work harder on this December & as I step into the new year. Read about my December intentions here: Hello December: My December Intentions.
Taking some time to focus on YOU every single day can really change your entire perspective and approach to how you choose to tackle your day & allow you to refocus.
Trust me when I say that self-care isn’t selfish. It’s the key to you becoming the happiest & best version of yourself & in turn, being that happy & best version of you when you’re around others.
Practice self-care & you will radiate positivity.
I come from a place where I lived & breathed self-neglect. Where I subconsciously always found reasons to put everything & anything before myself.
When I changed that, my life changed. For the better.
Yesterday on my self-care menu was: a healthy, hearty breakfast made with Vital Proteins matcha collagen, a warm & frothy almond milk latte, 2 killer morning workouts, a day spent blogging & chilling by my fireplace & later at night, exfoliating, a face mask & an epsom salt bath!
What does your self-care look like today?
