Expanding Your Self Care

Expanding your Self Care

The more one does self care, the more that can be accomplished in life.

Really, What is Self Care?

I look at self care being something, anything that you enjoy doing.

Something that makes you feel good. Now the feel good aspect might not be right in that moment (think running those extra 5 miles - it hurts at the time) but the feel good comes when you are finished and know you have done some great self care.

Often times, I hear people saying that they feel bad for taking care of themselves through self care. Like receiving body, mind spirit healing and guidance is something that is considered selfish, or an indulgence that should be put on the back burner. Why?


✨You are amazing and continue to take great care of yourself✨ But so many people don’t, or only do a small amount.



Definition of self care

"Self-care has been defined as the process of taking care of oneself with behaviors that promote health and active management of illness when it occurs. Individuals engage in some form of self-care daily with food choices, exercise, sleep, and dental care." Wikipedia


"The practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress." Online dictionary


Here is a list of what most people consider to be self care

  • Gym membership 
  • Massage 
  • Facials 
  • Manicure/Pedicure 
  • Meditation 
  • Reading 
  • Bath 
  • Naps. This is my personal all time favorite option for self care. I am a huge nap taker. I love feeling my body melt into my surroundings. (Hey family, right now I need 30 minutes for myself.) 
  • Using killer skincare and body care products 


But self care is also

  • Saying 'no' 
  • Saying 'yes' to what you want for dinner 
  • Saying 'yes' to the vacation you want 


I think that the more one does self care, the more that can be accomplished in life
