Over the last two weeks we have ticked off some items from my 31 days of self-care list, or maybe you came up with your own list. If you didn’t get a copy you can download the list here to get you started.
This month my theme on the blog has been 31 days to focus on YOU If you want to catch up you can click here to read through the posts so far.
Self-care list Week 3
Your goal for this week is to tick off 5 more things to do that are JUST FOR YOU! Who is up for the Challenge?
Being fit, fabulous, healthier and happier doesn’t just mean working out. It means nurturing your mind, body and soul. That means taking time to look at these three areas of your life and ensuring that you are doing things to keep healthy and feeling fabulous.
We can all have great intentions of making changes in our lives but what is the point if we don’t actually DO anything.
5 more things to tick off your self-care list this week
We can actually tick off more than five as I’ve combined some together. I’ve also included again some previous posts you might like to revisit so click on the images for more information on each.
1. Exercise each day and include some Yoga
Just 30 minutes of exercise each day is all we need to keep healthy and fit. Including some Yoga will help to strengthen our body and our mind. Any movement is good for us and good for the soul. So start moving today!
2. Schedule your annual medical check up
Do you have any regular medical checks that you need to schedule? Now is the time to do it
Last month in my focus on Health & Wellness I wrote about the importance of knowing what medical checks and screening we might need, especially as we age.
3. Chill out and watch a favourite movie Plus indulge in some dark chocolate
Relaxation is so important to keep us healthy, happy and with energy to keep up with a busy lifestyle. This week, select a film you haven’t seen or maybe revisit a favourite. You can also indulge in some dark chocolate which is good for the soul. Last month I wrote about Creating a Gold Class Movie Experience at home so you might want to revisit and get some ideas.
4. Watch a sunrise or sunset – take a moment to breathe
There is something special and spiritual about watching a sunrise or sunset. Just taking time to be in the moment and experience the beauty of nature.
5. Write 5 things down that you love about YOU
Okay this is ONE YOU DEFINITELY HAVE TO DO THIS WEEK! Until we can love ourselves we cannot experience our full potential. So often we are critical of ourselves, so the goal this week is to start discovering what you love about YOU! I’d love you to share your thoughts with me on this one.
How to achieve your goal?
We can all procrastinate, say ‘we don’t have the time’, say ‘we have responsibilities’ BUT you and your well-being is JUST AS IMPORTANT. SO MAKE THE TIME!
In my previous post I listed 3 ways to achieve your goal AND also the health benefits of making time for yourself. CLICK HERE TO REVISIT THEM BECAUSE WE CAN ALWAYS DO WITH A REMINDER.
So are you going to schedule your ‘me time’ this week?
Will you tick off my 5 suggestions or do you have others on your list?
