- How much do you love yourself?
- And do you know where you spend your time on?
- Are you consciously setting your priorities?
For me these 3 questions are essential for self-care.
The first question is so important and normally not taken into consideration or even thought about.
- Do you love yourself in the first place?
- And then how much?
This is for me the key for self-care. If you don’t love yourself, you won’t put yourself in the first place but at the end of the list of all the things you have to do and all the people you take care of.
Wrong place to be if you want to live happily, lose weight, start a meditation practice, work on your mind, or just be a better parent, partner or colleague for example.
Time to reconsider!
Then a lot of times we think we don’t have time but if we would really make an effort to see where we spend our time on, we would see a lot of unuseful stuff like social media, which is big nowadays, watching tv, spending time with people who don’t support us or binge-watching series on Netflix.
You have to be the detective of your own life and use the time you are given wisely.
Time goes by and will never come back.
Priorities are a big thing. As soon as you know where you spend your time on , then you can dig into your priorities. Have you ever even considered dedicating some time thinking about them?
You can say yes to everything but then probably your time is scattered between soooo many things that you can’t even focus on one thing right. Know your priorities, focus on them and say NO to a bunch of other things which don’t add up to your life.
I always come back to conscious living. As long as you don’t take your life into your own hands and you don’t take responsibility for it, you won’t lead the life you want to.
I know it’s much easier to complain and say that things never work out right for you, but do you work on it yourself? Or do you let outside circumstances lead you?
For self-care, these points are really important. If you want to live a happy, healthy and productive life you will have to take action. You will have to put yourself first and take care of yourself. Nobody will do that for you, it’s in your hands.
Don’t give your power away to anybody or anything. Life is too precious to waste, so start 2020 in the best way ever.
