It’s time to focus on your own SELF-CARE and how it makes everything else in your life better. Self-care is what will give you the energy and the drive you need to turn your goals into reality. It forms the basis of everything else you do!
Without setting aside a little time to take care of yourself, you can feel unfulfilled, tired, and uninspired. And that’s no way to feel when you are trying to reach your goals… let alone go through your everyday life.
Self-care means so much more than just taking a little time for yourself every once in a while. Self-care is also eating healthy foods, exercising on a regular basis, getting enough sleep, drinking your water, and practicing stress management.
When you have energy and you feel great, everything is EASIER. Think about it this way ... when you take care of your lawn or the plants in your home and garden, they flourish and grow! You are just like those plants – when you take care of you, YOU flourish!
On a practical level, that means you have more energy for your family, your career, your friends, hobbies, home, and leisure time! Plus … all that self-care can help you with any body-transformation goals you might have. Getting back into the habit of taking better care of yourself doesn’t take as long as you might think. After just a day or two, you’ll feel the difference in a BIG way. The hardest part is taking those first few steps. You just have to decide!
So ask yourself this… What can you do starting TODAY, RIGHT NOW, to take better care of yourself? What ONE activity will leave you feeling energized and ready to take on the day? For me, that ONE thing is making sure to start the day off in a good way. It means not turning on my phone until an hour after I’ve woken up. It means taking the time before I do anything else to drink a cup of coffee and read a book. It means making sure I have an extra hour in my schedule so I can get my workout in. What is it for YOU!?
