Hey Balance Fam,
We know just how important it is to fill up your cup and take care of yourself so you can go into everyday with a fresh mind and full heart. Although morning routines, nutrition, hydration, and sleep habits are all essential to taking care of yourself, we want to take self care a little further in this blog.
What you’re reading, listening to, or seeing everyday can (and often does) have an effect on you whether you realize it or not. You can get caught up in the highlight reels you see on social media and start comparing. You can let the attitudes of others begin to determine how you feel. You can start to neglect the little things (like who and what you surround yourself with on a daily basis) that make such a large impact on your overall mindset and subconscious.
Often times when we think about self care, we think in terms of treating ourselves. While a face mask and bubble bath are definitely a relaxing form of self care, they are only a temporary solution. Instead of focusing on what you can do to take care of yourself in that moment, focus on acting with intention as you go through your day and through life. Mindfulness can play a pivotal role and will allow you to observe what is benefiting you and what is not. Be aware that everything you do, and everything you expose yourself to, can affect you even in the most minor way.
In order to be your best self, it’s important to practice self care in all aspects of your life.
