Self-Care: How to Create Your Daily Ritual
Between spending countless hours dedicated to our careers, taking care of children, cleaning our houses, managing appointments and family obligations, maintaining a self-care ritual for yourself may not always be a top priority. At Growing Forward, Jennifer Solis will work with you to help determine why your self-care isn’t a top priority, and she will guide you through the transition to make the changes you so desperately want.
Until you are able to connect with Jennifer one-on-one, here are some tips on how to create your own daily self-care ritual.
1. Narrow it Down – There are countless activities that you can do on a daily basis that can count as self-care. When trying to determine which act of self-care you are going to practice daily, make sure it is something you enjoy. While incorporating daily workouts and meditation work for some, it might not work for others. Maybe you can listen to your favorite audio book, soak in the bath, utilize a creative outlet like writing or painting, or you can even spend time in nature or walking your dogs. The possibilities are endless.
2. Get Excited – Creating a new habit isn’t easy. So, you can try to find some motivation to prepare yourself for your new daily regimen. If you’ve decided on taking a relaxing bath every day, invest in some bath bombs, bath salts and other spa accessories to enhance your bathing experience. Purchase new art supplies if you’re feeling the creative path is for you, or invest in some new workout gear if physical activity sounds most rewarding.
3. Make it Happen – You can complete the necessary steps above, but if you don’t find time daily to make this dream a reality, then self-care will remain just a dream. Jennifer at Growing Forward will help you navigate through your obligations and jam-packed schedule to determine how you can make yourself and your wellness a bigger priority in your life.
