Taking care of yourself should be the easiest thing in the world.
Yet, we all forget to do it or tell us that the happiness and health of others mean more right now. A lot of people put themselves last, sometimes helping others is easier than taking care of your own mental and physical health. But the truth is: you can only help others, if you take care of yourself first.
You start small. You find the things that calm and de-stress you. For each and everyone of us it is something different. For example, I like to take care of my skin and body so I either exercise or treat myself to a face mask. But like I mentioned it’s different for everyone.
But here are some simple ways to make sure you take care of yourself:
Start by doing one thing for yourself a day. Whether it being five minutes extra in bed to calm your thoughts or whether it is a short workout or nap. Find something that suits your lifestyle. You’ll always have at least 20 minutes a day to just take care of yourself and if not make room for it and evaluate your day. You don’t have to spend money.
Self-care is about mindfulness, habits, practices and mindsets. Find your way. Create and sustain a better life for yourself and the people you care about.

In a world that is always finding new short cuts to do things quicker, I believe it’s important to go back to old practices. It may seem daunting and time consuming, but believe me, learning a new skill is fun and rewarding. It is not only good for your brain to focus on an activity, […]
It’s been a while guys hasn’t it… I’m sorry. I haven’t been able to post much content for the past couple month for a variety of reasons, but in my absence, I have been able to think of some new and original ideas to bring to my blog posts on the My Need To Live […]
