As a yoga teacher and life coach, self-care is at the foundation of my teaching. I see people all the time struggle with the concept of self-care. They feel guilty, they don’t have the time, the motivation, the means, etc. Self-care is about treating yourself right; physically, mentally and emotionally. The great news about self-care is that once you start treating yourself with respect and compassion you will find that it is easier to treat others this way as well. It’s a win-win for everyone! Here are some tips for how to be a self-care superstar:
Tip #1 Date Yourself
I’m serious! Check yourself out in the mirror, give yourself a compliment, do your hair just for you, or write yourself a love note. You get the idea! Fall for you.
Tip #2 Treat Your Body (And Your Brain) Like A Temple
You are amazing, so treat yourself with respect! Take care of yourself by eating healthy foods and doing daily movement. Read books and articles that raise your vibration, have a meaningful conversation or learn a new skill that makes you come alive. Keep up the good work and continue to thrive in your life! Investing in taking care of yourself is the best investment.
Tip #3 Keep It Real
Do what you can, when you can. Be kind to yourself. Don’t beat yourself up if you ate something unhealthy or skipped out on your yoga class. It’s okay. You missed the point of self-care. Self-care means being kind to yourself even if you messed up your self-care practice! Keep it in check. It’s all love.
