3 simple tips to help you thrive!
Too often life can get into a 'routine' like momentum, and suddenly you feel as if you have no time or dedication to you (I know this feeling all too well). As cliché as it sounds, if you don't love you or have time for yourself how do you expect to give that love and time to others? I know it's extremely hard to find time or make yourself a priority. Trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, work, nurture relationships and look after yourself? It's a lot! That's where I come in - I'm going to give you 3 simple yet life-altering tips to make yourself the priority, because you deserve it!
Do your self-care checklist everyday.
I feel as if the words 'self-care checklist' have become quite a trend lately - and for good reason! Having a self-care checklist is so important, but it doesn't need to be super elaborate as most people think! No it doesn't need to be a super high end night time routine, or a crazy in depth journaling regime. If having that cup of tea before bed is your thing, then do that everyday! Or if having that piece of chocolate everyday is your happiness, then do that! You should NEVER feel guilty for eating, doing or wanting time to do what makes you happy. Own that 10 minutes of your day, indulge in it! Self-care is so important for your health.
Disconnect for a moment.
When's the last time you took time to unplug from the demand of social media, your mobile phone or laptop? Easier said than done for sure, but it is crucial to create that boundary between being on your devices and taking time to be 'human'. If feeling guilty is your thing, trust me - the world is going to run just fine without you for five minutes! Next time you're in bed and about to reach for that phone, opt to a book you like, get creative with some drawing, listen to a podcast or do a meditation. The more you disconnect from the outside` world, the more you connect with you.
Gratitude and appreciation is the key to wealth of being.
This one is SO important. I've previously written a blog on manifestation and law of attraction, and the importance of appreciating and being grateful for what you do have before asking more from the universe. I personally add this step into my self-care checklist as I believe in it so much. The benefits of expressing gratitude daily are endless - a more positive outlook on life, better relationships, improves self-esteem etc. The difference between doing it well is either just saying to yourself what you're grateful for or actually writing it down and going more in depth. If you follow my Instagram you're probably tired of me sharing it, but I write in my gratitude journal every night. ( I got mine from Kmart for literally $5 - bargain!!) It helps you realise that even the simplest of things make up the great life that is yours. Some of my favourite gratitude prompts are - What are you grateful for right now? What do you love about today? What can you let go of? What will you focus on going forward?
You deserve to be the very best version of you! Do what makes you happy, take time to yourself, be grateful and appreciate what you have.
