Take A Good Care Of Yourself

Because if you don’t, nobody will. Because the best care has to come from you to yourself first. From others are just a plus. They are welcome, great even, but not essential. Self care is. And self caring includes taking a good care of your mind, body and soul. They are all important aspects of the self. And if one of them are neglected, the other two suffer. So find ways to support all of your selves. Try different things and see what works best for you.

For your mind you can try meditation, yoga, visualization, affirmations, psychotherapy, memory exercises…

For your body there are plenty of activities like a morning walk, running, lifting weights, yoga, Pilates, Zumba, ballroom dancing, massages, Reflexology, Acupuncture, other alternative therapies, seek good doctors, and so on and on and on… Eat healthier, full of nutrients food, do your annual physical exams…

For your soul you can try alternative therapies like soul retriever, Reiki and things like meditation, yoga, pray, spiritual practice or rituals…

Explore the possibilities. Seek help when you need. Listen to yourself, to your body. Get in sync with all your selves. Breathe well and deeply, slowly. Don’t overdo. Relax often. Rest anytime you feel up to or need. Do things that make you happy. Do things out of your comfort zone. Keep your friendship network alive and kicking. Let love happens. Have your back. Be present in whatever you do. Be you.

And yes, make time for it. You deserve it.

And before you feel guilty (if you aren’t already) keep in mind this: if you don’t take a good care of yourself first, you will not be able to take care of others who might need you either. Because in order to do so, you gotta be alright, be at your best or at least functioning well to take a good care of others.

Right?

Right.
