Take a look at your current to-do list. Chances are, it includes errands and chores – things that keep your life running well and take care of those around you. But, have you thought about also prioritizing things to take care of you?
While “self-care” may sound a little abstract, it’s really very simple. It’s all about rejuvenating your spirit and nourishing your soul. Making a choice to reconnect with your spirit on a daily basis.
Practicing self-care each day can help give you the emotional and physical strength to pursue your personal and professional goals. And, for those working on their sobriety, it can help you cultivate a fulfilling life – one free from addiction.
(1) Set aside 15 minutes of reflection before bedtime. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. But, it’s important to take a step back and press pause on life once in a while. Before you go to bed, turn off your phone and the TV for a few minutes and spend some quality time with yourself. Think about what you accomplished during the day and the moments that you cherish. Focusing on your achievements today can help fuel your dreams for tomorrow.
(2) Indulge in some fresh air. Carve out a few minutes in your calendar to spend time outside each day. Instead of eating your breakfast in the car on the way to work, take your bagel and cappuccino outside. Spending a few minutes on your patio in the morning can help set you up for a great day.
(3) Make your sleep a priority. If you want to take care of your emotional and physical well-being, start prioritizing the amount of sleep you get each night. Getting a full night of rest can help regulate your mood throughout the day and boost your productivity at work.
If you’re like most people, you likely have a busy schedule – filled with personal and work obligations. But, it’s also important to schedule activities that are designed to keep you well balanced and feel good about your journey in life.
