Self-Care Is Not Selfish – It’s Essential
Self-care is not selfish – it’s essential. We know it to be true, but the world is getting faster paced, the time for self-care and time-out seems to get getting less and the pressure to be all things to all people is on. We know there are days when we need to take a breath. We know we should have exercised or done that yoga class, and we know we could do with more sleep and should eat better. Yet somehow no matter what our best intentions – it just doesn’t happen.
There are three things to consider when it comes to making self-care a priority.
- A different perspective
- Use the time you have
- Practice makes perfect
Couple these practices with powerful daily aromatic rituals and you will be walking your talk, you will be leading by example and you will be creating a ripple effect that extends beyond realisation. And if there is one self-care practice that makes the biggest difference of all it is setting your intention, honouring yourself and doing your Daily Body Boost ritual.
