Making a commitment to self-care can be extremely challenging amidst a rushed schedule, countless responsibilities, and a culture that hasn’t emphasized its vast benefits until recently. But, it only takes a single first step to venture out into a new routine that allows you to take care of your mind, emotions, body, and pay attention to the voice of your soul.
Taking that small step can catapult you on a path to improve your life, and also the lives of everyone around you. The balance gained by those few minutes will allow you to absorb and bounce-back from anything that comes to you, which will help you to maintain your positivity and inherent awesomeness.
What might that first step be? Our blog is full of ways to get started. Some examples may include conscious breathing, creative writing, a few yoga postures, a mindfulness practice, or taking a moment to reflect. Likely, you’re already on your way. Maybe you exercise, meditate, cook, or play with your furry friends. And more than likely, you probably brush your teeth (neglecting this seemingly mundane daily self care task can eventually lead to health conditions like heart disease). If so, consider what else you can do to further your sense of balance and resilience.
