Daily Dose Of Self-Care

No matter how old you are or your life circumstances, we all deserve to indulge in self-care daily. Love yourself and hug yourself!

Daily Dose Of Self-Care

When you hear the word "self-care," many think of it as an action you do for yourself when you aren’t on top of your game. You give yourself extra care when you are down in the dumps and when you are sick. In reality, every single human on earth can and should indulge in self-care. Humans shouldn’t turn to self-care when they are in need of it. Instead, we should give ourselves unconditional love and care every day of our lives. We should make it an effort to put ourselves as top priority. This is not selfish, this is simply self-care. If you think about it, we can provide the best help and love for others when we start with ourselves. Taking time out of everyday to focus inward will help balance our life and let me tell you, becoming your own best friend is the best feeling and every human deserves to feel it!

Have you ever felt like you weren't living to your fullest potential? Or that you could carry so much more light and energy inside you? After being on autopilot for weeks and weeks, I decided I wanted to start living. I made the conscious decision that I no longer wanted to live a life that is led by my anxious thoughts and past regrets. Don't wait for something out of the ordinary to happen in order for you to wake up. Realize now that life is too short to do anything besides live in each magical moment. Open your heart and love yourself. It could be as simple as waking up each morning and sitting on your front porch, watching the vast sky gently move. Start writing in a journal as you dissect your brain from your thoughts. Read an inspiring book that when you put it down, you are determined you can and will change the world. Have a meditation session in your backyard as you learn to sit with your thoughts and not let them overwhelm you. Go to a yoga class and listen to your body, mind, and soul as you connect to them like never before. It's pretty magical how these simple steps have made a huge impact in my day and life.

Now I’m not saying you have to read, write, yoga, and repeat. What I’m saying is to take some time out of your day and get fully involved in yourself. You deserve it! Self-care should be a common act we spend each day doing. We all have time! Time is just a concept, and we have all the time there is. It is very important to take your foot off the pedal and stop for a moment to reflect on your life goals and achievements. We are never too old nor too young to love ourselves endlessly, to give our body and mind the time they deserve and to not force or ignore any thoughts in our heads. To also let go, simply, and be OK with what is happening in our heads.

I encourage you to go forth with self-care. Whether it be 10 minutes or an hour, take a mini vacation from your hectic day. Get some fresh air, walk your dog, or go on a bike ride. From now on, start thinking about self-care as a mandatory step to help your body grow. Hug yourself and love yourself!

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl
