Let’s talk about Self Care today. If you’ve been around my blogging space- then you will have seen several blog posts so far. But just incase- get a recap here:
Self Care can sometimes come up as this illusive idea for some people. It seems simple- yet can be incredibly hard to implement. The way I break it down for my clients is that self care should rejuvenate you. It should make you feel as though you have returned from a nice massage or a relaxing vacation. It should not involve errands, chores, or anything on your structural to do list. It should be just for you.
As moms, we’re generally last to do everything:
Get New Things
And so this can be a new change of pace to start actually implementing self care into our day to day routine- but I promise you- it pays off big time, if you are strict in implementing it. Self care takes planning- you have to plan for it- and how often depends on the person and the season you’re at in your life. Some people need a little bit everyday- not much but 15-20 minutes. Some people need it once a week, while others can go several months before they need it- but the bottom line is that everyone needs it.
Some of my favorite advocates of self care are:
Brittia Kubeczka with Fringe and Fitness– she has a self care challenge that is free on her website.
Natalie Hughes with Success with Style – she’s a personal shopper but clothes can really be a huge confidence boost- especially for moms. She has a super affordable option for personal styling without breaking the bank and I’ve learned so much from her in just a few short weeks.
There’s no right or wrong way to practice self care so long as you are filling your cup and not depleting it!
