As busy business owners, leaders, and professionals (often life-affirming, volunteers, and families), it can be difficult to prioritize what you can do to take care of yourself. Sometimes the topic is confused as a simple, feminine subject. However, even though men do not like to get fondness or to rub their hands or spend time with their friends on coffee, both men and women need to make sure they are breathing and regaining their strength. This is taking care of themselves.
When we take care of ourselves, we expose ourselves to the risk of stress that results in mental retardation and a major burnout. While our self-care practices may not reach our highest level of what we have today, it is the first time to add to your list! Before we make a list of “good” things, you need to understand the meaning of self-care.
For years my friends and relatives have ridiculed me for burning candles at both ends and I have to take care of myself. Sometimes it was difficult to understand what he meant. I knew I was busy, but I do things that are important to me, that I love, and that I get energy and space. My friends and relatives would tell me where to find me, but sometimes I was confused about what I should do. I couldn’t see just sitting at home reading a book for three hours or an hour, or taking a whole day to go and still trying my favorite pastimes. It looked like a hurricane: “Calm down and take care of yourself, but don’t fix anything.” How do you get a non-consensual massage and I force myself to stay busy? I often reply, “I’m fine.” I had self-care items set up in my day and I feel like I have a lot of energy even though I do business, but I know I don’t take care of myself or take time off, but it seems like it’s stressful to prepare them for the day as well.
What fascinated me, as is the case with many, is when my body has not been able to be with me as it does. After my second daughter was born I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism. Symptoms should be fatigue, cerebral palsy, body aches, and more. I thought, “What’s new? You just have to get through it.” The disease did not change anything except to increase the concerns of my friends and relatives to reduce and take care of themselves. Enjoying the harvest and making things, I have more time for 2 activities, family, and more volunteer time.
Then, I turn 40. Enjoying everything I do, I found that stress comes with a few limits that I allowed myself to. The combination of stress and health is what I claim to be experiencing some of the problems I started to experience that cause panic. This piqued my interest. I tried to deal with this new problem and improve but I found that the same thing had some drawbacks. I tried to go back to my chosen years and worked hard, meditating, writing, quiet time, and much more. I started to see the experiences of those who were older but looked younger as opposed to those who were the same age it seems old-fashioned. This is when I started to think about how my small portions helped me do more but only increase my stress. My depression helped me to cope with the increasing amount of stress that was also involved.
As a result, you may be reluctant to take care of yourself and others may tell you that you need to cut back, or you may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. I believe everyone should take care of their body, mind, and spirit, but when talking to someone who is going to shake and shake, you have to take care of yourself. You connect with more people, you become more interested and depending on how you take care of yourself it can affect your ability to continue to do what you are doing and the amount of hope you share in how you do it. So, how do you do it?
# 1) Essentials. These are the principles that help you to maintain stability. When we are healthy and young we can take better care of our health and run away from not doing the basics. As we get older, we will see more of the lack of self-care or the strange appearance of those who took time. Health research and literature always have the same ideas:
– SLEEP. Do not deceive yourself. You need 8 hours.
– GO. Even daily walking is better than anything else. Get a pedometer. Perform 10K steps. Go outside (I live in MN, I know how hard it can be.)
– WATER. Drinking your body in water is good, but for some of us, some GOOD water is great. Add lemon wedges or anything that will help you every day.
– GOOD. Eat pork and vegetables (kale, spinach, etc.). Honestly, good vegetables are hard for me but when you add them to your diet, they become easier.
– SUPPORT. It may be a good food (turmeric, cinnamon, oregano, blueberries, nuts, etc.) or a supplement.
– BREATHING. Whether it’s daily meditation or 10 breaks a day, increase your time to relax, don’t worry, and fill your body with air.
# 2) Restoring Your Body, Your Mind, and Your Spirit. I believe there is a difference between a list of self-care and learning to listen to my inner personality and self-awareness. The list can be used to help inform ideas, initiate, or allow you to hear a variety of decisions on what might be needed. Self-care does not mean being a slave to lists, but responding to the call of the inner man. For example, if you are thirsty, your body needs water. You can look at soft drinks: soda, tea, coffee, water, water … but you know what your body really needs you feel your body and you will know if you try to drink other choices that will keep you thirsty. The body needs water to be refreshed. Likewise in our self-care, it is important to learn how to feel yourself and hear what your body, mind, and spirit are asking for.
– Examples of lists that include activities from which you can take care of yourself daily and weekly:
– Body (helps your body feel better): Massage, walking outdoors, eating salads, exercising, stretching, taking 10 minutes, eating fruit, eating breakfast, drinking plenty of water, cutting sugar, getting sun, laughing
– Ideas (helps to reduce stress and direct attention to relaxation): meditation, playing the piano or instrument, reading a book, writing an essay, making a list, setting boundaries, reading positive and encouraging notes, de-clutter, remove an hour
– Spirit (invigorates the heart, brings happiness and inner peace): coffee with friends, listening to music, going out, eating dinner, reading the Bible, praying, keeping a card bag and re-lighting it, reducing or eliminating toxins and harmful to the people you feed, give yourself
– Natural Correction. You can listen to your wise words and inner words, it will tell you what you want. It may sound like the things on the self-regulating list or may not be the same. You may not want to do that, but understand how smart your body is and believe that it gives you the best advice on what you want. It can be as follows:
– You’ve been sitting all day at the computer. You feel lazy and tired. You ask yourself, “What do I want to restore?” GO AWAY.
– You have felt that you have not been told and you have not been interested. You ask yourself, “What should I pour oil on?”
– You feel lonely even though you have people around you. You ask yourself, “What do I need to work on most?” CALL YOUR OLD BFF OUT.
– You feel tired and in the back. You ask yourself “Should I deal with stress?” Create a List.
– You get frustrated and nervous about all your activities. You ask yourself, “What do I need to rest for?” LISTEN TO THE SONGS AND GO TO THE JOURNEY.
Whatever it may be, the point is that there is no right or wrong. It is not a magic act. I listen to your insides and let your body tell you what you want. This may sound a bit ‘woo-woo’ and I hope it is clear that I am not saying anything that is not allowed or inappropriate, but as you get used to listening to your body (by being quiet and calm and listening to your heart), you will get useful information that is not from the head. , instead of giving up on yourself and taking care of yourself, this is a moment to help!
