Taking Care Of Yourself Is Not Being Selfish
I did not always know what it felt like to make myself a priority. Today, I know the peace of mind that I have when I can say NO or postpone things which will not add to my well-being ... or delete people who suck away at my life energy...or give myself permission to cry because even my tears release anxiety...or take in a new challenge because it stimulates me...or buy an expensive cream... or save money because it gives me peace of mind.
When I feel tired and exhausted, I deplete my own energy plus the energy of those around me.
Think of all the things which you have to do today.
Is your well-being on the list?
Each one of us are unique. Therefore what we need for our sense of well-being is also unique for each one of us. For me, a 30 minute walk refuels my energy as well as having a great cappuccino in the middle of the afternoon. Once a week, I like to stay in bed longer without any agenda. Other times, I become intense about achieving a goal because it also refuels my drive to meet my own personal and professional ambitions.
What is clear to me, is that I am consciously creating my agenda to keep myself and my well-being a priority.
How are you making your well-being a priority?
