Ep 41: 3 Guidelines to Effective Self-Care
You feel guilty, you shame yourself for taking time out for self-care. The meaning has become so skewed over the years, but in reality when you take care of yourself, it’s the BEST way to take care of everyone else in your life.
In this episode, you’ll learn 3 guidelines for your own self-care, self-preservation practice that feeds and nourishes your mind, body and soul.
This Episode is For You If:
- You’re good at keeping commitments to other people but not yourself
- Self-care becomes one more thing on your to do list that you can’t get to
- You think self-care takes too much time, money and energy
- You view self-care as indulgent manis and pedis
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgent, its self-preservation.”
-Audre Lorde, Burst of Light
When you take time for you, time expands, it’s like a “universal exchange of energy.” You’ll create more space, and come back rejuvenated and with a fresh new outlook to everything you do.
Self-care is a way of preserving yourself, and you may choose to take hours and hours where you may want to cook a “full meal” of self-care things. That is okay, but also recognize that the “protein bar option” of self-care is also available to you too.
