What is Self-care? Perspective Matters!

How are you intentionally practicing self-love via self-care today?🤔 Let me know in the comments!

Sometimes we get caught up in an all-or-nothing mindset when it comes to self-care practices. Either I do EVERYTHING exactly right or I do nothing at all! Sometimes we are unwilling to embrace the fact that every act of self-care, no matter how seemingly small, MATTERS IMMENSELY. 🙌

So, when I ask you how you’re intentionally practicing self-care, I’m simply reminding you that hydrating your body is self-care. Eating vegetables and fruits (and other nutrient dense foods) is self-care. Journaling is self-care. Taking conscious, intentional deep breaths for any amount of time is self-care. Meditating is self-care. Spending any amount of time in nature just BEING is self-care. 🍉🥑💧

Taking a walk is self-care. Laying by the pool is self-care. Reading a book you enjoy is self-care. Taking a bath is self-care. Drinking water is self-care. Gratitude stacking is self-care. 🏊‍♀️🛁📚

The list of small, simple, meaningful practices goes on and on. The goal is to work toward changing your perspective to consciously and intentionally framing ALL of these actions under the category of self-care, which then translates into allowing you to feel successful in your self-care practices more often, which leads to you wanting to do more, and so on in an upward self-care spiral. 😊

They don’t all need to be accomplished in any particular time frame for any one of them to deeply nurture and heal your mind, body, spirit wellness! 💫

WHY is this so incredibly important? 🤔

Throughout my own personal transformation(s) and bearing witness to wellness transformations of thousands of others who achieved things they previously believed unattainable for themselves in all areas of life, I’ve learned one major lesson that always rings true:

☑️The amount of health, vibrancy, energy, vitality, joy, happiness – overall total wellness that you feel every day – IS DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO the amount of self-love and self-care you are willing to practice day to day.

That is why changing our perspectives on what self-care is (how we define/frame it) is so important (and why I aim to drive that point home continuously.) That is WHY redefining self-care is SO CRUCIAL to changing one’s habits, beliefs, and overall lifestyle choices in a sustainable way. 🙌

That is why I’m so intent on guiding you to allow yourself to feel successful EVERY SINGLE TIME you drink water, read a book, appreciate nature, or thousands of other seemingly mundane or unimportant actions that are actually massively celebration-worthy practices of self-care. 🎆🎇🎉
