What is Self-Care and Why it is Vital to Well-being?

Mindful choices throughout the day are not flashy and often they defy immediate gratification.  Embrace the BIG PICTURE and realize the consequences.

*Are you self-sabotaging your future with negative thoughts and habits?  

Although you cannot change overnight, you can change your direction.  Hoping things will get better will not change anything. Action is required.  Self-care is internally fueled by your thoughts, dreams and desires.

Taking care of you is not selfish it’s self love and necessary for well-being.

*Train your mind and body.

A good self-care plan reminds you of what you want to accomplish. This plan reminds you about what you need to do to take care of you.

* A foundation for what you want to do and how you can accomplish it.

You should also provide yourself with inspirational quotes and affirmations. This is the spiritual fuel that keeps you focused on your own personal well being.

In addition to inspirational quotes, you can hang motivating pictures throughout your home and office.

* Inspire you and remind you of  your why.

Track your progress. Keep a log of your exercise time and a food journal; record your mental and emotional health. Write down what’s going on inside of you so you can evaluate your feelings and proactively take care of your mental health.

*Create a Personalized Self-Care Plan

Ask yourself about what has motivated you in the past. Use this as your motivation toward the things you need to do to take care of yourself.

*You need to take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone else. 

A good self-care plan will provide you with the outlook, attitude, and energy to enjoy life to its fullest!
