How’s your self care? Cultivating daily self care requires two things… consideration of self (how do I feel, what do I need right now) and action (choosing an activity that uplifts you and gives you a sense of well- being.) As you build your self-care capacity, it will become a part of every day life to consider yourself and take care of you. Here are some areas to draw from for your own self care. The choices are endless.
Learn how to become “full of yourself” and have more energy, more well-being, a better relationship to yourself and others and more success in your business and your life than ever before. What is Self Care and why is it absolutely essential to the quality of your life and bear a direct relationship to business success? Self Care is defined as the practice of rituals, routines, and behaviors that support you to be at your best: emotionally, physically, and spiritually. There is quite a range of what true self care looks like for a person.
If you had a magic wand and you could manifest anything you wanted, what would that be? Is your vision for your Next-Level Life to become healthier and more vibrant, or to have more fun and adventure, or to meet your soul mate, or to uplevel your current relationship from “OK” to “off the charts fabulous” or create more income with joy, ease and flow? Whatever your goals are, honor them! Go BIG… Claim what you truly want. No excuses, minimizing, or concessions.
If you want to take your income, your relationships, or your health to the next level but you can’t seem to find the time to squeeze that priority into your over- filled calendar, this is for you. The strategy I have for you is counterintuitive AND it works! But first a story. Personal development guru and author of the classic book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey, taught a different approach to “time” management. In live events, Stephen would demo how to “get it all done” using three items, an empty bowl, sand, and a set of medium and big rocks. He challenged a participant to fill the bowl with ALL the rocks and the sand.
How is it that some people have the ability to “have it all”? You see their updates on Instagram that they are slaying it at work, taking cool trips all over the world and recently launched their own not-for-profit organization. On top of all of these successes, they have a wide circle of friends and a close-knit family. They’re happy, healthy and fulfilled. Their successes are real and it’s impressive.
