If you had asked me this a few years ago, I would have struggled to answer this question. I knew it was important and that I needed more of it, but I struggled to implement it for myself.
It was only when I hit a place in my life where I had no work life balance and life, I was on the verge of another burn out and life had become about surviving, that I knew something had to change.
Now, I’m very committed to my self-care and if that means other people have to wait, get told no, or I actually spend my time and energy on myself… I’m okay with that. We can never recover lost time and it can be very hard to reverse dis-ease and I believe prevention is better than cure.
Self-care can mean different things to different people, but for me, it’s daily dog walks, regular gym sessions, weekly breathwork, daily mediation and EFT/Tapping, relaxing on my Shakti Mat, spending time with friends and family, kitchen dancing to cheesy tunes, being honest when I don’t want to do something or when
I’m triggered, doing things that make me happy, asking for help and spending money on quality supplements and food that give me health and vitality.
