Many people think that self-care is selfish. But it is not. Burning yourself at both ends is no way to live. Sometimes you need to take a break from everything – friends, family, work, spouse, and children – all to rejuvenate. There is so much going on in the world – sickness, death, and stress. And none of it is going away, at least not in the foreseeable future. Therefore, continuing to add to the stress that’s circulating in the human collective is not a good idea.
Sometimes you have to unplug from the Matrix and recharge your energy so that you don’t end up sick or nearly on your deathbed trying to be everything to everyone. A huge part of improving your immune system isn’t just about taking vitamins or herbs. Sometimes it involves the simple act of relaxation, happiness, and getting away from it all. Your body has to have time to let go of the stress and be happy so that your vital organs won’t get overwhelmed. Sometimes the very act of getting deep breaths can release loads of stress.
As we start the new year, it is a good idea to create a routine that puts you at the forefront. Don’t you know how they say “pay yourself first” in personal finance? This concept also applies to self-care. Therefore, this year is the year to build into your schedule time in which you intentionally put yourself on a pedestal. Even if it is once a month when you go to get a full grooming session from head to toe, you deserve it. No phone calls, no interruptions. Just time alone to be alone with your thoughts and to de-stress. To help you with your self-care routine, here are a few of my affiliate partners who sell products that can help.
