Do you neglect yourself? That’s not unusual in these fast-paced modern times. The multiplicity of life demands may overwhelm you and leave little – if any – time for self-care.
But unless you crack the self-care code soon, you’ll burn yourself out. Then it’s very difficult to regain your good health again.
Need a kickstart? This week, I’ve gathered three of my earliest articles on self-care for just that purpose. You’ll find two adorable kittens in the package too.
- How to Write A Letter to Yourself (and Why You Really Should)
- A Simple Approach to Boundaries, Worries, and Catnaps
- The Power of One
Intelligent self-care means finding the right balance, which includes caring for yourself, caring for others, and taking care of your work too.
Don’t let guilt get in the way. When you take time to relax and rejuvenate, you bring more focus and clarity back to whatever else you do. That means you’ll be more attentive to your children, more tuned in to your relationship, and more productive at work. All that equals more satisfaction, which is probably what you’re truly dreaming of.
Does the idea of self-care seem impossible? Then start small. Begin with just 5 glorious minutes for yourself as you sip and savor an aromatic cup of tea. When you bring your full attention to the present, a moment can feel like a relaxed eternity.
Begin however you can and fully enjoy any act of self-care no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. Place one upon the other and soon you will feel more spacious and at ease.
