To me, self care is absolutely pivotal to anyone who wants to achieve a greater sense of wellbeing. Addressing our wellbeing isn’t always an easy process, which is why in order to give ourselves the best starting chance. To do this, it’s really important that we practice regular self-care. This comes in many forms for many people but the premises is that it’s taking time out of your day to intentionally do something which makes you feel good. Whether it’s sitting in the garden with a cup of tea for 10 minutes, or having a weekly massage, I really believe that the intention to take time out for you is beneficial in itself.
I focus on the art of self care in all my wellbeing workshops, even if is just the act of pampering yourself with a face mask – that intent and focus to do something solely because it feels good contributes to your self worth which ultimately creates a greater sense of wellbeing. It’s puts you in the right frame of mind to deal with the more challenging aspects of life. Whether you decide to address the negativity in your life or not, at least you’ll know the self care techniques to reach to if you need them.
Sometimes self care needs the assistance of a professional therapist of which I’ve investigated a few which you can read all about in my therapy reviews. If you’d like some guidance on how to pick therapies check out the therapy guides section.
