Up your self-care
When I talk about self-care, I’m referring to actions that support your nutritional, biochemical and emotional health. This might be committing to a regular yoga or meditation practice because you know you feel good afterwards, or amping up your nourishment to support your biochemistry. However, self-care also at times means putting your own needs above what others require from you, making tough decisions and speaking up.
In other words, self-care isn’t always easy. Sometimes it requires us to do things that make us feel uncomfortable. It’s human nature to try to avoid pain and discomfort so often we avoid the things we would get the most benefit from. What acts of self-care would you most benefit from?
Do you need to say ‘no’ more? Ask for support? Commit to engaging in activities that light your heart up? Do you need to be kinder to yourself? Think about your biggest frustration and you’ll usually find the thing that will bring you the most joy hidden deep inside it.
