Self-care means asking yourself what you need and following through on the honest answer. Self-care can be as simple as getting to bed earlier on a work night, or as hard as taking a look at some of the habits you’ve created for yourself and their long-term effects. Self-care is essential. It’s human work we all need. It is hard work that takes time. Every one of us who’s been paying attention for the last few years and watching our communities come apart. We all feel the weight of this time we’re living in. Self-care is not one-size fits all. Again, Ask yourself what you need and then listen.
What do you need in this season of your life? What robs or steals your energy, joy or peace? What brings you joy, peace or energy? What is your capacity right now? What are healthy vs unhealthy habits, practices, or activities? What do I need to stop, start or continue?
A better world starts with the best version of you!
