Getting Serious About Self-Care
“Self-care” is a buzz term used frequently in today’s busy world, but what does that really look like for each of us? We are all familiar with the idea of treating ourselves to a massage or a hot bath at the end of a long day, but what about some of the less glamorous activities that may also be necessary for our well-being?
How about going for a walk when we want to veg out on the couch, or cooking a nutritious meal when grabbing a processed snack would be easier? Or maybe it’s having that tough, but necessary, conversation with a loved one that we have been putting off.
These types of self-care activities can be harder to put into practice consistently because we get used to our comfortable habits even when they’re no longer serving us. So today, we can start by asking ourselves, “What is something I’ve been putting off that I could take one small step toward achieving? How might my health and my life look different after changing just one or two habits?”
