With dozens of different distractions pulling us in every direction, have we forgotten how to take care of ourselves and listen to what our bodies and spirits’ need?
Intentional living doesn’t need to be self-absorbed, and self-care isn’t just about going to fancy spas over the weekend. We are all about using easy, simple steps that help improve our day-to-day living, and self-care is no exception.
Self-care affects five areas – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and intellectual. When these areas are properly taken care of, they can enrich the quality of our lives and the lives of those around us. Self-care is not selfish. Self-care is vital.
The best part about self-care is how flexible it can be. You can schedule an evening at home once a week or set an alarm on your phone to remind yourself to breathe deeply for one minute every hour.
Some ideas to get you started might include checking in, creating a gratitude list, meditating, unplugging for an hour, taking a nap, or soaking in a bath with your favourite essential oils! Make sure to schedule these self-care moments into your calendar, so you can ensure that they happen.
Sometimes, though, life really does just get too busy.
That’s why listening to a podcast while driving or working around the house can be a great way to engage your mind without taking too much time out of your schedule.
