Most people think of candlelight bubble baths, drinking wine, or eating chocolates as self-care.
And frankly, it can be.
But if this stuff doesn’t resonate with you or help you move your life forward, there are other ways!
And because showing self-love and self-care is so important, here are 4 ways you can express self-love that don’t involve baths or consumption…
- Create space for yourself daily to reflect and dream – this can look like visualizing the life you want, journaling, or meditating. There’s no right or wrong, but you should feel inspired when you’re done. It doesn’t have to take more than 10 minutes per day.
- Take up a new hobby (or spend more time with one you already have). Uncovering new skills or finding ways to re-focus and release stress will do wonders for you.
- Spend time with friends. Too many people get caught up in the grind, hustle, and responsibility of life. So, make a commitment to yourself and your people to get together to share, talk, and laugh 2-4 times per month. It’s totally rejuvenating!
- Set a goal to help you level up and work toward it. This could be a fitness goal, a career goal, a money goal, a relationship goal, etc. It doesn’t matter what the category is, but humans thrive best when they have something to work toward.
The key with creating success from these strategies is consistency and following through on them even when you don’t want to or you’re short on time.
This can change your mood, success, and your entire life.
