I’m a big proponent of self-love. In my work as a life coach, I believe that you need to be in tune with yourself in order to be fully in tune with others. I believe that if you’re not taking time to care for yourself, you won’t have the ability to do so with others.
But I also believe that self-care is important, even in this pandemic. You can’t live your life in full from one day to the next if you’re neglecting yourself, especially when you’re stressed and busy.
In my experience, when you’re living well, it comes from the inside out. And it’s a continuous, lifelong journey. That’s why I’ve created this self-care list for you. These are the things I’m doing to take care of myself and I hope you’ll do the same.
Exercise is a great self-care tool. In fact, it’s so great that it should be a part of your self-care list, too. There are so many reasons why you should be getting your daily exercise in. It’s the number one best medicine for our mental and physical health. It releases endorphins and stress, and improves our mood. It’s also a great way to connect to your body and soul.
I’ve always been an avid runner. Even though I live in the city, I often go to the park or my local running track to jog. When I first moved to NYC, I had the most difficult time finding a local running track. So, I decided to make my own. I found a local park and started running there every day. It helped me find my inner peace and balance in this crazy city.
Meditation is also a great self-care tool. I meditate every day and I’ve found that it keeps me centered and grounded. When I meditate, I try to stay calm and centered. It helps me find peace in the midst of the chaos in my life. I love it because it doesn’t take a lot of time and it doesn’t cost a thing.
I’m not a guru or spiritual person at all. I don’t believe in any religious figures or philosophy. I just think that meditation is a great way to connect to your own inner voice. As you connect to your own truth, you can help others connect to theirs. I’ve found that this connection can be very therapeutic.
