Day 8 - The best gift you can give yourself & others

Dec 23, 2021

How often do you think about yourself & what's best for you?

It can be a tough thing to do, especially at this time of the year but it´s more important than ever that you feel well. 

It certainly can feel abnormal to focus on your own wellbeing, especially if you have a family to take care of, as well. 

We often feel guilty for prioritizing ourselves, because it feels as if we are choosing to put loved ones on a back burner.  Do you ever feel that way? 

It’s perfectly normal to feel that, but I do have to tell you… it’s so, so untrue.  When you are in your best shape — mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, etc. — you are in a position to be truly present and to care for others in the best way possible. Isn´t that what Christmas is all about?

So take this as your cue today.

What ways are you taking care of yourself?  What can you do today to prioritise your wellbeing?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Say no to more commitments
  • Roll out your mat and do a workout
  • Get yourself a nice smelling moisturiser and cover yourself in it tonight 
  • Light a candle, put on some relaxing music and pour yourself a bath
  • Go to bed early & read a book

Christmas is only moments away so now more than ever is a time to look after yourself so you can be there for others when the time comes.

Self care is not selfish. It's essential.

No one can look after you but YOU.

P.s: Making time for self care is one of the most efficient ways to reduce stress and develop a better relationship with food, fitness & your body.
