When bringing self-care into your day feels impossible, finding a better workout routine or downloading yet another sleep app isn’t the solution. Ultimately, you need to change your mindset. By challenging your assumptions about what self-care is, you’ll be better equipped to find an approach that works for you. Here are three tips that can help.
Define self-care on your own terms.
Self-care can look different for different people. It could be watching your favorite TV show at the end of a long day, turning off your phone, meditating, working out — or something else entirely. Only you can determine what your mind, body, and spirit need to thrive.
Beware of all-or-nothing thinking.
You don’t need to become a health and fitness expert or an expert meditator overnight. Little adjustments make a big difference.
Look for ways to integrate self-care into your existing habits and routines.
Try a walking meeting with a colleague instead of a Zoom call, or make your next friend date a virtual workout class.
I strongly believe in a personal approach. We all have our own personalities and what works for one may not always work for the other.
