It’s Not Selfish, It’s Self Care

What’s a simple way to start to feel GOOD all the time?

Doing more of the things you love!

Though, if you’re like me, you have those moments of guilt. There is something instilled in so many of us that if we aren’t busy working or taking care of some form of responsibility, we feel lazy or selfish with that “wasted” time. But let me tell you, it’s not waste and that’s not selfish – it’s self care. Without it, you burn out, you’re not living life to its fullest, you’re letting time pass by instead of living in the moment.

So make a list of the things you LOVE to do

On mine?

• Watching a beautiful sunset with my pup
• getting to a basketball game (go Celtics!)⠀
• writing a new song on my guitar⠀
• making a healthy meal⠀
• spending time with friends/family⠀
• going to the movies⠀
• dancing my butt off at a concert⠀ ⠀

Taking time for YOU is what your mental health is all about. It craves the endorphins, it craves the joy and beauty of the moment and most of all it loves how it makes you feel all over on the inside and even more how it radiates back out into the world.

So do yourself the favor and take some time for you. Make it a priority and see how you’re every day can change into the best day. ⠀
