The modern woman has it all -- everything but enough time, that is. It can be difficult to take care of yourself with a busy schedule but neglecting self-care can end up causing major problems down the road. Self-care isn’t selfish, it’s self-respect. It’s not a luxury, it’s a necessity.
Take the first step by nourishing your body from within –
As a busy woman, self-care can sometime take a backseat. But its time to start prioritizing yourself:
- Eating well and paying attention to your nutritional needs is a basic aspect of self-care. But eating the right thing isn’t always easy, especially when you lead a busy life. Come up with one or two go-to meals you can turn to whenever you are too tired to even think about what you might want to eat.
- The average person doesn’t get enough water throughout the day. Dehydration can lead to severe medical complications, including fatigue, joint pain, weight gain, headaches, ulcers, high blood pressure, and kidney disease. While you may not be able to lug around a gallon of H2O with you, you can include water-rich foods into your meals like cucumbers, strawberries, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, cantaloupe, spinach, and watermelon.
- Meditation is the best way to tap into your intuition and really listen to yourself. Try setting up an area in your home (or even in your office) where you can sit in peace and quiet and truly concentrate on your practice.
- Prioritizing is the key! At the office, self care can take the form of prioritizing your must-dos over the many emergency fires that call for attention. Make a to-do list, put your phone on DND, and if you have one, close your door, or if not, pop in your earbuds.
