Hello Diamonds! As I’ve been blogging about self-care, I would love to end with a few embedded videos and personal tips from my speaking engagement at the Sis, Self-Care Isn’t Selfish, Women's Health and Wellness Expo.
Self-care - the holistic care of self that grows from intentional acts and concrete actions that support our physical, psychological, and spiritual growth, valuing ourselves as human beings worthy of love and respect. This is important because it encourages us to maintain a healthy relationship with ourselves so that we can transmit the good feelings to others.
We have absolute control over ourselves – our time, our energy, our space, our money, and how we’re treated. Setting healthy boundaries are a form of self-preservation. When we set boundaries, we are taking care of ourselves. We are recognizing what we need and asking for it. BOUNDARIES are where our power lies. It’s how we show people what we will and will not allow.
The time is now to change the way YOU think. It’s time to prepare for your future, take your power back and set boundaries. Your mind, mental health, and overall self-care are vital and indispensable; you must be determined and unwavering in protecting them. Life is short- you need time to enrich your life and to live your best life EVER.
True self-care starts from within. Our body hears everything our mind says; realize you have power over your mind! Investing in your overall well-being includes becoming more AWARE of your thoughts! The mind is everything. What you think you become, our life is shaped through our thoughts.
Powerful Thought-Provoking Questions to ask YOU:
Who will I share my “Priceless” and "Precious" Time with? And how much of it could be spent on me?
Do my needs come last? Is my overloaded schedule being prioritized over my self-care, my needs, and the messages my body is sending me?
How could I invite more self-care into my life and what shifts could I make that would allow me to do that?
What’s missing in my life that I like to see unfold? What’s creating the most stress for me and how might that be alleviated?
