What Actual Self-Care Means

What is Self-Care?

Self-care has been a trendy word that you would often see in magazines or in the internet. Sometimes, it’s a piece of chocolate and a hot long bath. Sometimes it’s staying at home. Spending time alone.

Self-care are set of intentional choices to grow, heal and transform to better version of ourselves. It’s changing and something that we define ourselves.

As a mother with a newborn, self-care is so important and often something I forget to do for myself. As the start of the month, I wanted to write this blog post to remind of myself of what it really means to “care for oneself”.

Here is what actual self-care means for me

  1. Setting financial goals and sticking to it
  2. Automating investments and savings so you don’t have to worry about it
  3. Using your PTO/vacation time
  4. Calling in sick when you are actually sick
  5. Saying “NO” and setting boundaries
  6. Avoiding food and drinks that make you feel like crap
  7. Meditation
  8. Setting time to do what you love

Self-care MATTERS. It’s so important because “You can’t pour from an empty cup”. Self-care is not just about spas, scented candles or face masks. It is something that you need in your life physically, mentally, financially and emotionally.

That’s what TRUE SELF-CARE IS.

Now, I want to hear from you!
