The power of self care

I believe the most important relationship we’ll ever have is with ourselves.


I’ve learnt that good health comes from having amazing self care.


How can we be good to anyone else, our family, friends, acquaintances, colleagues, staff, clients, patients, customers if we are not happy and proud of ourselves?


Every day is an opportunity for you to make yourself feel happier.


This starts with respecting yourself, honouring your self care and really taking personal responsibility for it.


There is nothing more important than the choices you make to eat every day.


The food you choose to put into your body – affects how you feel, your energy, your decisions, your mood, how your body functions, your concentration and focus.


Over time you see the effects of the choices you’ve made in your energy levels, your skin, hair and nails, your body fat levels, muscle mass, your teeth, joints, circulation and the functioning of your organ systems (kidneys, liver, heart, digestion, brain etc).


There’s no escaping that fact – our results tell a story of how we’ve been taking care of ourselves.


You know when we were in our 20’s our body was maturing but after the age of 40, how we take care of ourselves every day will determine how many young years (regardless of your actual age) we have as matured adults.


Isn’t this exciting?  🙂


I know there is a tendency to forget about your self care as you think there’s more urgent matters of life to deal with.


e.g. work and earning money for the family or making sure the children are well cared for come before your self care.


We end up neglecting themselves.


The answers lies within you – happiness and health is an inside job.


When you take care of yourself you are:


More productive

More effective

More efficient

Happier and more energised

Able to heal more quickly


When you make this switch – you set an example to everyone around you – by your actions – you lead others 🙂


Are you ready to take your self care to a whole new level?


Your task for today is to observe:

– Are you rushing about?
– Is your focused on other people and not you?
– Do you feel guilty if you think about yourself?
– Do you switch off from healthy eating and regular exercise?


What did you observe?  What will you change?
