What is self-care?
Please join this #selfcaremovement & post pics all over your favorite social media sites of you doing daily self care tasks to help you along this journey.
Self care is a journey and we are ALL in this together!
As I post new videos about self care & empower women to be more mindful about what self care really is, I want you to know that I am along for the journey with you.
Self care is something I do NOT do for myself regularly, let alone on a daily basis. There are weeks where I’m really really good about it, but like everyone, life takes over and I end up falling off the wagon & back to my old ways again.
This movement is about keeping each other accountable and being each other’s cheerleaders along the way. Remember, life is a journey. We need to always think about how we get to our destination that’s the learning experience.
“Life is about the journey, not the destination.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I love this quote and it really is something we should all take in consideration when looking at our lives.
Benefits to self care
I love that self care is more than a massage, facial or mani/pedi. Self care is YOU doing small daily tasks that you tell yourself “I love me”. When you’re not doing these small things for yourself, you are not a nice person (trust me I’ve been there).
You don’t want to be THAT person, do you?
Here are some great benefits:
- Easy to do
- Can be done anywhere and anytime
- Only takes 5 minutes
- You feel better instantly
- You look better on the outside
- You feel happier
- You make smarter health choices
- You follow your heart & go for new opportunities
- Become aware of your life and your goals
- Boosts your confidence
- You become a better person
You will begin to walk taller, feel lighter and be more pleasant to be around. You’ll be a better mother, wife, girlfriend, sister, daughter, aunt, friend, etc; when you take time out of your busy life to tell yourself that you love and honor you.
Self care is a treat we can give to ourselves.
We cannot and should never rely on anyone else to make us happy! #truth
I remember being a young girl and just adoring Disney Princesses, such as Ariel, Belle & Jasmine (because those were my favorite new movies when I was young) and just thinking that all I need in life is to find true love and he will make me happy.
How twisted was that?
The lesson I ended up learning is that no matter how amazing a guy is, he will NEVER make you happy unless YOU are truly happy with YOURSELF!
How do you love yourself?
