The holidays have come and gone. During the holidays we were all looking for gifts for others and running around. During that time of year and all times of year, remember to take care of yourself. Self-care is a very important part of our mental health. Self care allows us to recognize ourselves which can be very difficult at times for us to do. Often times for mothers and caregivers we are looking after other people’s needs and wants. Continue to try and fit time in your daily left for yourself. Do not neglect your self and your own mental health. I found this self care chart which breaks it down into 3 parts, our mental, physical, and emotional self.
As you read through this chart challenge yourself to think about ways to take care of yourself mentally, physically and emotionally. You are unique; there is only one of you in this world. I encourage you to find your strengths, potential and worth and make time to care for yourself today and everyday!
Create, educate, inspire.
