Self-care is a term often tossed around like a hot potato without really landing anywhere.
I divide self-care into four main categories. Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual.
In the past, I was great at focusing on one area or the other, but as the other areas were put on the back burner, the area that I was focusing on would suffer no matter how much I invested in it. It was simple. 100% focus on only one specific area wasn’t going to make me feel awesome, I really did need to focus on taking care of all of them. So I made the switch. I started investing a little bit of time into each category and it made a world of difference for me.
If you feel like your self-care routine isn’t giving you want you need, maybe it’s time to evaluate and reflect upon what you’re doing, or not doing, and then make some choices based on your discoveries.
