Notice when you take some time for yourself. how you are feeling, and notice when you neglect yourself how you are going to be feeling.
Actually set some time, preferably in the mornings, to take care of you, and do whatever is required.
I do that every single morning. Ask yourself every morning: “What I can do to set myself up for success today?” And actually do that.
It’s different for each and one of us. I need to sleep a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean for only 8 hours.
Actually schedule a time for the taking care of you. That can be twice a week. Even once a week. Whenever you have a time. Actually schedule time for yourself.
I do that my every day off. If I have a two days off from work, I will do this two days. If I have a three, I will do three times a week.
Of course, your taking care of you can be every day, and it should be every day, it”s just that, if you need to do some certain tasks, you will have to have a less time for yourself, and that is ok. You are going to take more care of you, when you are going to have some more time for yourself.
What I am suggesting you is, reserve mornings for that. When you wake up, do whatever it takes to get yourself ready fully for the day.
By self care I mean: meditation, journaling, guided meditations, planing your future, do the pedicure, manicure, hair cut, coloring your hair, shaving, doing eyebrows, dry brushing your body, exercising, doing yoga or running, or both, having sex, detox your body, forgive yourself, call someone, watch a movie that you always wanted to…
These are all self-care actions that you can do.
You cannot help someone if your cup is empty. Fill your cup first, and only then you will be able to fill somebody else’s.
I find it very crucial to take some time for myself. I kinda feel more energized, it makes me feel so fine, and good taken care of.
Wash your face is an amazing book that you should read.
My kinda story
For example; I was getting ready for a sleep now, changed my clothes, got into pijama, and was so tired to get myself into the bathroom, to wash my face and brush my teeth, but I did it anyway, because I knew I will feel better once I do it. And my morning the next day is going to be much more pleasurable.
Self care tips about the taking great care of yourself can also boost your confidence, and self worth as well.
Now, riding my bike on a way home from work, I was counting and reminding myself of the things that I am proud of myself. And it made me feel so good. I even drop a tear or two. This is also part of the self care routine, and you must implement. Train yourself to find the good in you.
So to take great care of you, you need to first want it enough. Only those that are loving life, and wants to take the most out of the life, are taking great care of themselves.
Don’t get me wrong, we are all taking care of ourselves, the way we know how, but there are also those that are brilliant in this. I wanna be one of them! Do you? We want to shine bright like a diamonds! 😀
Nutrition! OMG, nutrition!
You are going to have so much energy if you watch what you eat. When you eat, is not that much important, but what you eat.
Think of the food as a fuel. You can”t fuel your gas with a diesel fuel, if your car uses the normal one. It is just not going to work. You are going to have difficulty turn on the car. Car is going to struggle.
Same with our bodies. Feed your body with live foods, cook yourself, do not buy factory produced food. This food is dead.
If you stay in your head you are going to be screwed. You need to go outside, move your body, actually breathe fresh air, but not the one that has been stagnant in your house. You are going to feel much better.
I, for example, whenever I go for a running, most of my times, I don”t bring my phone with me. It is such a relieving feeling. You can get so much insights from that too, because when you spend time with you, and only you, you get to know yourself better. And you should do that definitely! Spend some more time, you with you, and watch how you are going to feel.
Start with the nutrition first. If you are looking for some food inspiration. I highly recommend you to check this Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/takes_you_higher/ I put all my heart, soul and energy into it.
Nutrition is something that I value the most, and I think you should be too. You are going to have so much energy.
Elevate your mood
Do whatever it takes to make yourself feeling better. Put smile on your face. I smile all day, every day. At least I try to. And it gives me such a good feeling. You can do that too. Actually ask yourself every day: “How do I really feel?” and “What I can do about it?” Read more on here about Two Questions You Need To Ask Yourself Daily
This Blog Post is not about me. It is to help you, by my experience. And I am telling you! After each 30 minutes stretches, doing yoga, or running, I feel like I can touch the sky. I feel so high. And I want you to feel the same way, because nothing else matters. So exercise often!
Think about this way: Nobody is going to care of you if you don”t take care of yourself. Nobody is going to ask you: “Maja! Are you hungry? “Do you need some rest?” Like, nobody! And that is a great thing, isn”t it? Because we don”t want anyone mess around us, and our lives. We want to create it the way we want to, right? So actually do it. And take great care of you, forever and always.
We really hope that helps!
To your success,
