I love self care, and I’m so proud that there is actually a week in the year dedicated to talking about self care as a subject. Closing out this work week of self care, I want to pay homage to those posts around the web that I truly love reading.
This year has been such a learning experience for me in that aspect. These posts are great reminders to treat yourself kind. Make sure that you’re giving your best self during your day, by making sure you’re bringing your best self to your work life and personal life. Here are a few helpful posts I’ve read recently!
Intentional Kindness, YES! Going about your day for seven days and intetionally finding ways to improve someone else’s life. That moment where you know you’ve done the right thing and helped another person out is just as much self care as many other aspects are. Self care also comes when you connect and find something out about someone else that you can help with!
My two favorites in this post were: asking for help, because that’s always something that I struggle with and its nice to see that I’m not the only one out there still learning this principle, and getting more sleep. I am a crazy coffee lady, and sometimes I drink coffee late at night, which at the very least keeps my mind up. However, there are also days that I drink a cup of hot sleepy time tea and have a wonderful night of deep sleep. I want to do the second of those options more!
Love this! What great reminders about what’s more important than getting any “likes”. We definitely should all be more like moms on instagram! They’re the best!
I had never had anxiety until about two months ago now, and it is not fun! If you are like me and are lucky enough to not have to suffer consistently with anxiety, thank God! If you do suffer more frequently with anxiety, I really love these tips.
For those of you who have suffered frequently or infrequently, what tends to bring anxiety on for you? What tips have you come up with that help you bring yourself back down?
I remember the first time I realized that by letting go of the anger I had for being wronged in a situation I was really letting both of us free. My mind was blown. I had never looked at forgiveness that way before. The Self Care freedom that came with that was so exhilarating. I didn’t have to hold onto hurt or anger. I was going to set both of us free to live our lives!
I was obsessed with this post from the first quote. I agree that Self Care doesn’t mean that you’re being selfish. You have to learn how to “unplug” yourself sometimes and rest before you get back to work! We all want to be our best selves in every aspect of our lives, and in order to be your best self, you have to also care about yourself!
IN LOVE. Again this was one of those posts that I was completely sucked into and couldn't stop reading. I love that It’s an interview with someone who has self care as one of their main focuses, even for their work. These were two of my favorite quotes “Burnout is a real, dangerous thing and so is autopilot” and “you can’t pour from an empty cup.” These remind me so much of my post about having no more pie.
Great Stuff!! What posts do you love and read over and over again that remind you to take care of yourself? Leave a comment with your favorite self care post from this year!
