When we think about self care, we tend to think it’s going to a spa and getting pamper or doing self home pampering. Though it is nice to get a deep tissue message or relax in a bathtub, it is not the full picture of self care. Self care is deciding to eat your vegetables when you rather have a burger. Self care is walking around the neighborhood instead of sitting down and binge watching shows. Self care is finally doing laundry that you have been pushing off. Self care is taking the time to money budget and pay your bills.
I know these activities does not sound relaxing as going to the spa, but a good chunk of self care is NOT fun. However, it’s worth it. It gets us into the right frame of mind in order to excel the other part of our life. Trust me, we can do this. We just have to adult one day at a time.
