Self-Care and Why It's Important For Your Health

self-care Apr 29, 2018

Self-care is non-negotiable when clients start working with me.  It is something that I build throughout my coaching sessions. Afterall if you are not looking after yourself, it can be very difficult to attain the health goals that you desire.

If you're a woman who takes care of everyone else first, this might be a new concept for you. However, it is well known that women who create self-loving strategies and build it into their lifestyle, attain their dreams and goals and have a happier and more fulfilled life. 

Defining self-care is easy simply because it's the opposite of self-sabotage or self-discipline. To successfully acquire self-care, you must have a self-care strategy. It's with that structured plan that you're going to be able to properly care for your very being.

 

Self-care isn't just about brushing your teeth or brushing your hair. Self-care is for the needs within you.

 

Self-care is caring for your soul, your inner self, and your very being.

 

 

Building a Solid Self-Care Strategy

  • A good self-care plan reminds you of what you want to accomplish. After all, you have values, goals, and a purpose in your life. This strategy reminds you of what you need to do to take care of you.

 

  • Using a diary or making notes to yourself can remind you of your goals and the things you need to do to take care of your body, mind, and soul.

 

  • Your self-care strategy gives you a good foundation for what you want to do and how you can achieve it.

 

  • You should also provide yourself with inspiring quotes and affirmations. This is the spiritual food that keeps you focused on your own personal well being. Not only do you have the reminders of what to do, but you also have small pieces of inspiration around you to remind you of why you're doing it!

 

  • Along with inspirational quotes, you can hang motivating pictures throughout your home and office. These pictures may be of amazing places you 'd like to visit someday or peaceful images of nature.

 

Your pictures may be of something that you want to attract into your life or may remind you of a happy memory from your past. You can also have a photo of your loved ones to remind you of what's significant to you.  

Your self-care plan should inspire you and remind you of why you want to take care of your body, mind and spirit. 

Another aspect of your self-care strategy is tracking your progress. Let's say you have a difficult time getting excited to exercise. By keeping a log of your exercise time, you can keep yourself focused on achieving a healthier you.

A food diary is also a great way to track your food choices so you can remind yourself that you need to eat nutritious foods. In addition, you can use a food diary to record your mental and emotional health.

Make a note of what's going on inside of you so you can evaluate your feelings and proactively look after your mental health.
