Self-Care Makes You Better, Period

Self-care is not a selfish act, it’s an act of self-love and self-preservation.

I often wonder when did working and/or becoming a mother become synonymous of “I’m not worthy”? Listen, “my hips don’t lie” anymore and I make it a point to schedule and get in a manicure and the bottom line is:  It’s not ok to forget about you.

Here are 3 reasons why you shouldn’t:

1) Self Care Improves Your Emotional Health: Taking time out to care for yourself can remind you and others that you and your needs are important, too. It conveys to others that you value yourself. This can contribute to long-term feelings of wellbeing.

2) Self Care Makes You a Better Caretaker: When you neglect your own needs and forget to nurture yourself, you are at danger of deeper levels of unhappiness, low self-esteem and feelings of resentment. Also, when you spend your time only taking care of others you are at risk for getting burned out on all the giving, which makes it more difficult to care for others or yourself. Taking time to care for yourself regularly can make you a better caretaker for others, specially your children.

3) Self Care Releases Stress: Giving your body some special treatment is a natural way to relieve stress. Spa-related activities like massage and warm baths have been known to sooth even small colicky babies like nothing else. These activities continue to be effective tools for relaxation as we get older.

Now go, what actions will you take TODAY to take care of yourself?
