Self-care is about taking action to preserve one’s bodily and mental health. Quite simply, we only have one body and one mind, so it’s essential that we put these things first in life, no?
Except it’s rarely that simple. Other things like, well, life get in the way and sometimes self care feels out of reach or oddly selfish.
That’s backwards, though. Can we agree that self care is not self-indulgent, or at all an irresponsible use of time? We can? Great. We have a responsibility to care for ourselves.
Without caring for ourselves we can hardly care for others, so if you’re finding yourself stressed, burnt out, or just want to keep up a healthy practice, you’ve come to the right place. These are 9 of my favorite self care routines and ideas to make it enjoyable and easy.
