Welcome back empowered readers,
For this weeks empowered journal I wanted to discuss and remind my readers about the importance of self-love. Today I was reminded of how easy it is to slip on self-care. Waking up with a head cold, I have been using the day to self-reflect on how easy it is to preach self-care, but also on how easy it is to fall-out of our much needed self-care practices. Even when we have the best intentions.
What is Self-Care?
Self-care means asking yourself what it is that you need at any given time and then following through on that honest answer. Self-care is an act of self-love and can range from taking a bubble bath to saying “no” when you are needing a break.
Why is it so hard to consistently engage in self-care?
We all experience stress, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Even when things in life are not going as planned and things can’t seemingly get worse, something can happen again to add additional stress and frustration. It is specifically at these times we need to make our self-care practices a priority, but learning to press the pause button seems to be the last thing on our minds.
But what can I do during these times of over-whelming stress and exhaustion?
Learn to say “I Need Help”.
Being able to identify the need for support and being vulnerable is a BIG STEP, especially in our society. Being vulnerable can be seen as a weakness, but is a place where we can meet ourselves with self-compassion instead.
