Love Yourself First

"Love yourself first and everything falls in line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world." Lucille Ball


What is self-care? It is the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one's own health, happiness, and well-being. Since COVID hit last year, I've continued regular exercise and healthy eating, but other forms of self-care like stress management and relaxation have taken a backseat. It is hard to dedicate time to yourself when others need and demand this time too.


What do you like to do for self-care? Here is a list of ideas:

Running

Yoga

Dance

Any other exercise you enjoy

Hot baths

Home spa treatments

Getting a massage

Watching your favorite TV show/Movie

Reading

Self Development activities

Spending extra time getting yourself ready for the day

Hiking

Spending time observing nature

A leisurely walk (gives you time to think, reflect)

Spending time with loved ones

Calling a friend or family member that uplifts you

Cooking a healthy meal

Meal planning, ordering healthy groceries for the next week


Just remember that if you don't keep your own light shining within, you won't have any light to share with others. So really self-care isn't selfish. You are taking care of yourself first, so that you are physically, mentally, and emotionally able to care for others as the best version of yourself.
