Take Care Of Yourself, There’s Only One You!

Self care? What is this word that you speak of? If you are asking this question, you like me, usually put the tasks that you have to do, or your goals, above taking care of yourself.

And I’m here to tell you my friends, as much as this gets things done it takes a toll on your health. I myself have had an experience with that. In fact that’s why I’m writing this post so you guys can learn from my not-so-smart mistakes.

When you work yourself so hard, one of two thinks are more than likely going to happen:

  • You’ll get so exhausted that you won’t want to work on the things that were so important that you put off taking care of yourself for.
  • You’ll get sick and can’t take care of said things.
Aaaand we’re down for the count!

Either way, you’re going to burn out and that’s never a good thing. And as the title of this post says: take care of yourself, there’s only one you!

Here are some things I personally like to do for self care, maybe it’ll inspire some of y’all out there.

  • Listen to my favorite music playlists. I literally have one constructed for each occasion/mood
  • Have a bath bomb sit in a small thing of water and let the smell waft throughout the room. I swear this is the best thing ever for me sometimes.
  • Take walks. There’s this adorable trail right by where I live that stretches for a good mile or two and it’s the best feeling ever to walk it when I’m too stuck in my head.
  • Video game session. Just ignore all responsibilities for at least an hour and relax with your favorite video game. It works every time.

Now I know taking even some time to do a little self care can be daunting. It can feel like if you take some time out of your busy schedule to do anything that’s anything but your tasks, you mine as well throw your whole to-do list out of the window.

I think this one speaks for itself…

But it doesn’t have to feel that way. I myself am still mastering this, but I’ve learned that if you close your eyes–just for a few seconds and take a few deep breaths, you won’t feel overwhelmed and will have the ability to schedule in that all important You time.

You’ll find that it’s worth it. And your body, mind, and surprise, surprise work schedule will thank you for it in the long run.

Well, that’s all for now.
