Top 3 Reasons People Avoid Self-Care

Loving on your beautiful self can get lost in the shuffle of life. All of a sudden at the end of your day – you’ve given at work, you’ve given to your family, you’ve given-given-given…except to yourself.

Self-Care is a gift you give your SELF. And I propose that it these small acts of kindness woven together throughout our day that promotes SELF-LOVE. Self-Care is a steppingstone to Self-Love.

Click here to see a quick vid on the top 3 reasons why people avoid Self-Care and simple ways to invite it in…

Focus On What Your Body Can DO

We spend a lot of time worrying about what our body looks like.

A LOT of time.

Often that energy turns into loathing, flagellation and negative thoughts toward your beautiful self.

When you notice this happening, try thinking about all of the amazing things your body can DO. Because it’s pretty f(*&king miraculous.

Self-Compassion Exercise

When my kids were both finally in school, I knew I needed to do some work around self-love and self-compassion. So I designed a self-study course for myself. High on the list was a book by Kristen Neff called, “Self Compassion.” You can see her TED Talk too by clicking here. 

One of the exercises in the book was to write a letter to myself from the position of a loving friend.

It was a game changer for me.

You try. Click on this link: http://self-compassion.org/category/exercises/

You’re worth it. xo.

Cut the crap…

February is Self-Care and Self-Love Month. Here’s an idea:

Start really noticing what you’re allowing in…

Not so very long ago, I loved fashion magazines. (I know it’s hard to believe because I look like a sweaty mess most of the time, but I love fashion.) But I started noticing that sometimes I felt crappy after looking at the magazines. I somehow felt…not enough or less than when I exposed myself to them.

So, I stopped reading those magazines.

I don’t seek out stuff that triggers my ‘less-thans’ (fitness sites, social media, some people’s websites, fashion magazines, RHO___.)

I especially avoid them on those those days when I just feel a little poopy. On those days, I make sure that what I’m putting in supports the whole of me – feeds the real and essential me.

Also, consider dropping the stuff that agitates you and pisses you off. Politics get you all wound up? Maybe step slowly away, or control your intake. Maybe start blocking people in your feed that keep posting disturbing things.

Start noticing the crap that makes you feel like crap and serve as the gatekeeper for your own beautiful self.

You’re worth it.

And I said to my body…

and-i-said-to-my-body

The first time I saw this…I wept. The biggest gift of self-love we can give is to set down the battering stick that we use on our bodies.

Our bodies are miracles. They hold us up, move us around, allow us to express and receive love. They heal us, allow us to feel, and think.

We are. YOU ARE a miracle wrapped in beautiful package.

Make peace. Spend the energy that you’d normally spend on flagellating yourself, loving yourself.

You are so worth this gift.

Namaste, S

Self Care – Idea

This month, challenge yourself to do ONE small thing each day to show yourself love and care.

One small thing.

Each day.

Don’t let the things that normally stop you from self-care get in your way. (In yoga teacher training, we call those ‘confusion strategies’ – things that we design ourselves to hinder our own growth, care or understanding.)

Step sweetly out of your own way and do this for your highest good.

Be creative!

Pedicure too expensive? – Lotion your feet.
No time for yoga? – Take 3 deep breaths during your day.
Can’t make time for exercise? – Drink one more glass of H2O each day.

Sometimes people say they don’t have enough money for self care…self care doesn’t have to cost a thing. https://turinofitness.com/2016/02/09/self-care-month-i-cant-afford-it/

Here’s the invitation – Make yourself a priority in your own life.

You’re worth it.

Namaste:) S

Idea – Self Care

It’s February – and every year in February I like to help us all remember to take our self-care and self-love seriously. So here’s an exercise for you to try:
Brainstorm a list of things that please you, light you up, bring you joy. Don’t let anything stop you from writing it down – including time, money…whatever. Don’t let “it’s not possible” stop you from dreaming.

Trip to Paris? Write it down.
Cup of tea and a good book? Write it down.
Massage? Write it down.
Exercise? Write it down?
Date night? Write it down.
Knit? Color? Girl’s Night? A house cleaned by someone else?
Write it down.

Give yourself permission to dream. And allow the things on your list to be soul-drenching.

Then, take a highlighter out and highlight the ones that are feasible and do-able and simply have to happen this month.

Click on this link for a free and printable February calendar if you need one.

Choose five. (More if you like.)

Schedule them.

Why? Very simply because you’re worth it.

And when you take care of yourself, you can better serve the world. Let February be a kickstart for self-love and self-care year round.

Namaste, S
