Let's start with the importance of self-care. It is foundational, without it we cannot function properly. We can use the analogy of our cars; We use and rely upon them to take us where we need and would like to go, safely, timely, comfortably and conveniently. To do this we need to put good fuel in, or our car will run rough and simply won't go! Oil and water are essential, as is checking our tyres and regular maintenance and services. We clean our cars for comfort and hygiene so they are a pleasure to be in. If we don't take care of these things our car runs rough, becomes unreliable or ends up in the hospital, a.k.a the mechanics.
"If we don't take care of ourselves, we suffer, and so does everyone else around us"
Self care includes eating well, drinking plenty of water, exercise or healthy outdoor activities, a regular good nights rest, reading and filling our minds with good positive thoughts. But self-care also includes taking time out to just be! Spending time alone with our thoughts, time to relax, unwind, rejuvenate and rejoice in the wonder that is you.
Make you time a wonderful habit! What is it you love to do? Would love to try? Be honest dig deep and remember this time it's all about you! No guilt please!
"The greatest investment you can ever make is in you!"
