Feel Extra Confident With a Tailored Self Care Routine

self care routine for busy people

Are you the one who sees and hears everywhere the structure “self care is important” but you never took it serious or practiced self care because you didn’t have the time to think about what self care routine you really fancy? If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place darling!

What is self-care?

Let’s start by defining our today’s topic. Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it’s a simple concept in theory, it’s something we very often don’t plan on doing.

balanced life

Self-care is the key to living a balanced life.

Where do you start? Well, there are three golden rules:

1. Being Intentional

The biggest thing is being intentional of how we take care of ourselves. When we’re not last on the task list, we have more energy to do what’s important to us.

2. Plan in advance

Self-care needs to be something you actively plan, rather than something that just happens. It is an active choice and you must treat it as such. Add certain activities to your calendar, announce your plans to others in order to increase your commitment, and actively look for opportunities to practice self-care.

3. Being Consistent

Self care is far more effective when you practice it on a daily basis. Practising self care 10-15 minutes a day is far more helpful than two hours once a month. Self care doesn’t have to involve a lot of time. If you’re struggling to fit self care into your routine, start small, prioritise, and listen to what you need.
