Top Priority: Taking Care Of You

Self care has always been a simple act but we make it hard at times. Self care has been simply taking care of your inner home.

Self care is to nourish your mind, body or spirit. Whatever it is, you do something nurturing. Never put off from taking a needed break or having some me-time. Create a better relationship with self.

I’ve seen firsthand that for so many including myself, self-care is something people consider to be too challenging, out of reach and always the last priority. Plenty believe that engaging in nurturing care of their own bodies, minds and spirits should fall behind the needs of everyone else.

Create affirmation cards. Putting your affirmations on cards can make great reminders. Flipping through them at a later time also reinforces your commitment for self care.

Create a Vision Board. Create a vision board for self care. Cut and paste pictures of you in activities that support your wellness. Your vision board serves as a reminder for you with undertaking self care.

Meditate. This is my favorite tip! I enjoy being in a peaceful state, away from the noise, crowd and clutter. So whenever I am feeling tense, I retreat into silence for a while.

Go offline. Reduce mental clutter by going off the internet for a day or even a week. Self care is to be able to get away from all the distractions, just for a day or two, take a break from answering calls or responding to texts. It’s okay! The world won’t collapse without you.

Use aromatherapy. Use scent therapy to invoke the right mood, release your tension or simply to clear the air of toxins.

Let go of emotional clutter. Spend an afternoon, night or simply allocate some time to clear emotional clutter. I do this at least 2-3 times per week, using emotional healing methods.

Book a healing session. Maybe it is Reiki, Quantum touch or crystal therapy. Whatever the healing modality is, feel revitalized after a session of energy healing.

We have to do a better job in making your self care wellness is a priority.

My inner world creates my outer world.

I have everything I need within myself.

I have much to celebrate about myself and my life.

I choose to stop apologizing for being me.

I let go of negative self-talk.
