Are you fed up of me banging on about self care yet? No? Good, because it is so important. Defining self care is such a difficult thing to do, that’s because what I class as self care, you may not. There are so many different things that I class as self care, which you may think ‘well, I do that without even thinking; is it really self care?’ The thing is, you can define self care how you want. At the end of the day, self care is do what you need to take care of YOU.
Self care to me at the moment, is keeping myself healthy, mind and body. I fell into a really bad routine of fizzy drinks, junk food and literally no exercise. Driving everywhere, grabbing food on the go and literally drinking 0 water what’s so ever. This was really taking an impact on not just my physical health, but mentally too. I got to a point where I was feeling down all of the time, tired, sluggish and it just was getting worse and worse.
When new year came around, I thought girl this has got to change. I literally couldn’t carry on the way I was, so thats when I came up with ‘The Year of Self Care‘ to work toward sorting myself out. All is going well so far, don’t get me wrong I still have a take away on a Saturday night but I’m also walking to work 4 days out 5 and I’m hitting the gym at least once a week.
Whilst I do also define self care as a nice bath on a Friday night, or an hour away from screens to pamper myself. The above kind of self care is my main priority at the moment, what’s yours? How do you define self care?
