Natural Living Self-Care

Making time for yourself is important

It gets overwhelming to be an adult.

Being an adult means taking on a lot of responsibilities like cleaning your house, ensuring tasks are done at work, paying bills. The only way to enjoy your time as an adult, despite all your responsibilities, is to embrace yourself by taking time to focus on what is important - you. This includes self-care.

You are probably thinking, what ways does self-care help you, and what does it entail? Self-care is a well-known phrase that defines everything you intentionally do for your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. You need to be aware of your well-being before achieving true self-care.

It can start with simple acts such as changing your routines in the morning and taking time to exercise before getting on with your day. Taking on self-care is important because it encourages you to keep a healthy relationship with yourself to transmit positive feelings to the people around you.


Self-care is the best care


6 tips for self-care

1. Maintain your physical well-being

The heart of self-care is your physical health. Regular exercise increases serotonin levels in the body, improving moods and energy. You could do an activity that you love and enjoy, like swimming or taking a jog. This creates a feeling of fulfilment.

2. Getting enough sleep

Many people struggle with getting proper sleep, which can cause sleep deprivation, and it affects their physical and mental well-being. Research suggests that adults need a minimum of 6 to 8 hours of sleep every night. Your body needs time to rest and recharge itself.

3. Eat healthier

A healthy diet is a significant part of self-care. Most people enjoy comfort foods like cakes, juicy steaks, etc., because it makes them feel good. However, eating such foods on a regular basis is not a good example of self-care. This said, eating healthy and nutritious foods is, you should try to create a habit of consuming foods that will healthily build your body.

4. Recognise everything that matters to you

It's easier said than done but asking yourself the tough questions can help you identify what matters to you. For example: What difference do you want to make around you? What changes can I make to better my circumstances? The answers to these questions should help you determine your life path. It's easier to spend your time in ways that reflect your priorities once you've identified them.

5. Have gratitude and change your mindset

It's normal to focus on the negatives when you're having a bad day. Still, it can be helpful to bring some positivity into your life. You might want to focus on the good memories and hold them dearly. Take time to be still and meditate more. The best level of self-care can be achieved by adopting a gratitude mindset.

6. Learn to say no

Don't say yes to every request that comes your way just because you don't want to hurt another person's feelings. If you do this at the expense of your own peace or health, you're not practising self-care principles. You're only human, so learn to recognise when you've reached your limit and say no once in a while.

A key to self-care is socialisation. However, it can be difficult to make time for friends and family and rather easy to neglect those relationships when life starts to get busy. Maintaining those relationships is important to your well-being. Although everyone has different social needs, you should determine your needs and build enough time to create a healthy social life.

Mental self-care is just as important. The way you think influences your psychological well-being. This involves doing things that you enjoy and helps you to stay healthy mentally, such as practising self-love and acceptance. Keeping track of your social and mental health is a form of true self-care.
