Week 2: What does Self Care look like?
So let’s get to know what Self Care is all about.
Each person has their own version of what self care means. It’s all about the individual. What works for you may not work for the next person. This is the same as your diet and the food you consume.
Put simply: There is no one-fits-all guide to self care.
Only you will know what is good for you and what ignites your energy and joy. Not sure what that is yet? Start making a list!
Today go and spend 5 minutes thinking about ANYTHING that makes you feel good (and I’m not talking eating a bag of crisps or a chocolate bar!). I’m talking about the things you WANT to do or have but never get around to doing!
Some ideas to spark your self care list could be:
- Something that makes you forget about work – even for 5 minutes
- Taking a warm bath
- Eating banana drizzled with honey
- Being with friends
- Jumping on a trampoline
All you need to do is sit quietly and connect to yourself to find out what makes you smile, gives you goose bumps or that feeling of peace and calmness. This is what your self care list will look like!
Now take a look at your list and try and incorporate one thing a day/every couple of days or once a week. These things should form part of your self-care routine so that you can start to feel better in your personal life and health.
