Self-care as an Act of Radical Self-Love!

Self-care as an act of Radical Self-Love!

Life can get very busy and hectic and it’s common for our self-care practices to get de-prioritized and fall to the wayside.

But the periods when we feel we don’t have time for self-care, are almost always the times when we need it the most.

If we don’t take time to refill our cup, then we will ultimately have less energy, focus and motivation to be as productive as we need to be!

This topic reminds me of a quote by Gandhi:

“I have so much to accomplish today that I must meditate for two hours instead of one.” 

Your form of self-care doesn’t have to be meditation, nor do you have to carve out an hour each day.

The point is to prioritize some form of self-care each day, even if it’s just for 15 minutes. It all counts and even a small amount can make a huge difference in your day!

    • Take a walk – get your blood flowing
    • Journal – get your thoughts and feelings on paper
    • Meditate – use an app or calming instrumental music
    • Call a friend to catch up or get support
    • Stretch & breathe – get out of your head and into your body
