Self-care is the greatest service you can give to yourself and others. At the end of the day, there is nobody who knows you better than you do. There is nobody who is more in-tune with your constant, thoughts, feelings, and emotions than you. It may seem dark, but nobody will truly prioritize your well-being and happiness more than you. You are doing a disservice to others when you don’t take care of your mental, emotional, and physical health because you are limited in energy you serve to the world if you don’t fill yourself up first.
Self-care isn’t a random day at the spa once every couple of months. It doesn’t have to cost money. It simply means consistently caring for yourself. It means genuinely checking in with yourself in all regards to analyze how you actually feel. Some things to ask yourself:
“What is one small thing I can do for me today?”
“What have I been wanting to do for myself, but haven’t?”
“What would make me happy right here right now in this moment?”
“How am I truly feeling? How does my body feel? What act of self-care can I do for my body?”
Self-care is not selfish. Self-care does not make you weak. We need to prioritize our health and happiness; it should be at the core of everything we do.
