Ways to Practice Self-care for Yourself + Others in 2020

by - 11/04/2020 12:00:00 AM

2020 has been the year of uncertainty... I will always remember being told on a flight to make sure that I put my life jacket on prior to assisting others. I've l.earning in life, that you can not properly take care of others if you do not take care of yourself first. 

It's so important to know when to unplug from social media and the news. You have to make the decision when it's right for you. However, know that it's so important to just unplug. 

As a busy mom, these days are essential. Take a moment for self-care. I realized how much I love having my nails painted. Weekly I make sure to take time out of my schedule to paint my nails. Why? Because it makes me happy. For you, it may be reading a book, going for a walk, or even get a message. Let's not forget shopping. Schedule those days, you can even turn this into a family event. Maybe the kids want to read at a special place. Like going to your local park. Figure out what works for you and your family.

Learn How To Relax
This is something that I too struggle with and plan on continuing to work on. What is working for me is learning how to be in the moment. If you're really in the moment it won't be so easy for you to react to what's going on around you.

My parents have always told me that if you don't have anything nice to say. Then don't say anything at all. I love the concept of writing out your thoughts prior to sending a text message or posting it on social media. Whether you're having the best day or a not so great day. Take some time out of your day to write down what you're grateful for. Ways that you can improve your day-to-day tasks. Take a moment to reflect on how you're feeling that moment. Trust me, it's wonderful to look back at and reflect on what you're grateful for. 

Do you practice self-care?
