Do you see yourself as worthy?
Worthy to be able to follow your dreams, worthy to treat yourself with compassion and kindness, worthy to wrap yourself up in a big blanket of self-care. You are so incredibly worthy, feeling this, and knowing this, can help you create the boundaries in your life you need to nurture yourself.
You are not the last option on your to do list, it is not well if I have enough time today I will go to my yoga class, or whatever your thing is – journaling, exercise, reading a book. You are worthy to schedule this time as non-negotiable in your day, and let everything else work around this. Now sure, occasionally there may be a reason it needs to be put aside, but I am talking about the majority of your time. For the majority of the time, what you need to do is not an option, it needs to be scheduled in your day. You are worthy to have your time in your day.
It is about showing ourselves some compassion and building in self care into our everyday, it is okay to fill your cup, and nurture yourself first. You are so incredibly worthy of this.
A couple of points for you to think about –
- What are my daily non-negotiable self care activities? The options on this list can really vary – journaling, reading, a cup of tea by yourself in the morning, oracle cards, meditating, exercise … this is just to name a few.
- Once you have this list, you then need to schedule this time in, and let those around you know you have booked out this time. Let your partner know, so that they are aware of your time.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it. If you are finding you need to get something done and won’t have time eg. Prepare the dinner, ask your family to get involved. Have a think about how others can help you with the daily to do list. You do not have to do everything.
Let me know how you go with scheduling some self-care into your day.
(Day Twenty-Three: My focus for the month of April, is to blog everyday. I am setting aside 30 minutes at the end of the day to connect with my message to share with you. The idea behind this, is to limit the overthinking, to minimise the censoring and just to connect with a theme I would like to share for the day.)
