The Self-Care Inspiration Guide
You know the women who make you think:
“How do they have it together ALL OF THE TIME?!”
I want to let you in on a secret… well, two actually…
Those women still have moments where they feel like their lives aren’t together
I can guarantee that over time, they’ve developed their own self-care practices that help them to feel and be at their best
We are all so different.
Especially when it comes to what self-care practices make us feel the most incredible versions of us.
For some of us, it’s moving our bodies at an intense circuit class. For some of us, it’s having a good stretch out at yoga.
For some of us, it’s going for a walk to clear our heads. For some of us, it’s journaling our way through how we’re feeling.
For some of us, it’s listening to a podcast for inspiration. For some of us, it’s meditating.
There is no right or wrong answer… it’s just what works for you.
But why should you prioritise self-care?
You are a busy woman after all!
Committing to time where we consciously rest and unwind activates the part of our Autonomic Nervous System responsible for the restoration and relaxation of our bodies - the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS).
By activating the PNS, we allow our bodies to:
+ Boost our immune system
+ Digest thoroughly and properly
+ Reduce stress and anxiety
+ Increase energy levels
+ Promote focus and productivity beyond self-care
+ Aid overall health and wellbeing
When we don’t take time to practice self-care and consciously relax? We put ourselves at risk of weight gain, mental health problems, digestive issues, immune system problems, sleep problems and more.
to help inspire you to a self-care practice you loved, i turned to 21 incredible women
From professional sportswomen to life coaches
From nutritionists to models
from radio djs to youtubers
And everything in between...
And I asked each one three questions:
What is the number one thing that lights you up?
What is the number one self-care practice you swear by?
What is your go-to to turn a bad day into a good one?
and each one had a completely different answer…
Because every single one of us is different… so why should our self-care practices be the same?
The only way you’ll commit to self-care practices that you love to do… is if you love to do them!
If you are meditating/journaling/insert other self-care practice here because it works for your sister/best friend/that celebrity on Instagram/insert other person here… you’re never going to feel truly relaxed, restored and fulfilled.
