Steer Your Own Ship!
How are you doing as a human or parental juggler? Are you giving yourself the self-care you need and deserve? Many people forget to befriend, nurture or re-parent themselves even when they really need to. Let’s Talk http://www.LiveInspiredwithNina.com
#SelfCare2018 #priorities #Balance This recent tweet begs to be continued in a blog post. So here is my attempt at explaining myself and offering tips for you or someone who needs self-care.
We live in a multi-faceted, fast-paced world that eats us up and spits us out if we are not careful. We are at the mercy of hectic and seemingly unstoppable schedules, unless we carve out time to stop, smell the roses and take ourselves to a better and calmer place.
It is all about living in balance and enjoying your life as you live it, so let’s get started with some helpful tips!
Take some quiet time and reflect upon your daily, weekly and monthly schedule. Identity where and when you are running on a human hamster wheel and when you stop to smell the roses and replenish yourself. The key is to notice the patterns and pace of your lifestyle and where changes need to be made. Are you doing too much in one area and not enough in another? That imbalance is another key that you are living out of balance.
Create an action plan that is realistic yet just outside of your comfort zone. Choose goals in major areas of your life that you need to focus on which may vary according to this specific season of your life and can change over time. Give yourself the love and grace you deserve as you create this plan. Build into your plan self-care activities that run your engine. Write down action steps to fulfill the areas you want to achieve under the main action plan. Record obstacles for each goal to see what stands in your way to achieving them. Next be sure to issue a timeline for you to practice and achieve the action steps you set forth in your plan.
Be willing to proceed at your own pace, keeping in mind that you are on a mission to love yourself, after all. Lead yourself like the Captain of your Own Ship you are and see what happens!
