“Self-care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what’s left of you.” – Katie Reed
Do you struggle to consistently embody self-care in your everyday life?
After coaching thousands of women over the last decade, I have found one very big problem when it comes to self-care rituals. It’s consistency. It’s not that we don’t know what to do. The problem is that we fall short in showing up for ourselves on a daily basis. We either wait until the setting is perfect to finally show up or until we hit rock bottom. And by the time that happens, it’s already too late.
In this episode of The Elevated Life podcast, we’re sharing “How to Embody Self-Care in Your Everyday Life” so you can start checking in on yourself without feeling like you need a rigid routine. If you want to make self-care part of your daily life, you cannot miss this episode!
Tune in to hear:
✨ The different types of self-care you should be practicing
✨ How to partner with Brit as an accountability coach during the 5-day Self-Care Kickstart Challenge
✨ Simple steps to get started with embodying self-care
✨ Tips to avoid rigid routines and instead incorporate small practices throughout the day
How to Embody Self-Care in Your Everyday Life
We’ve all been there – knowing what’s good for us but struggling to make it a daily habit. We tend to wait for that “perfect moment” or, unfortunately, hit rock bottom before we finally prioritize our self-care. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Consistency isn’t about dedicating hours every day; it’s about those little moments of self-check-ins sprinkled throughout your daily routine.
Creating mini-routines can be an effective way to infuse self-care into our daily lives. Instead of making self-care feel like a daunting task, think of it as a series of small moments you give yourself. Begin by recognizing those pockets of your day that call for a little self-nurturing or quiet reflection. These routines don’t need to be elaborate; they can be as simple as taking a few breaths, a minute of gentle stretching, or a brief mindfulness practice. The power of these mini-routines is in their accessibility, so you can prioritize self-care whenever you need it.
Practice Self-Care Holistically
Self-care goes beyond just our physical needs; it includes spiritual, emotional, and mental well-being. Consider self-care decisions when planning meals, making conscious choices at the grocery store, and even practicing gratitude or meditation for spiritual self-care. Developing holistic self-care rituals ensures that you nurture every aspect of your being, leading to a more balanced and fulfilled life.
Get an Accountability Buddy
Having someone by your side can provide support, motivation, and encouragement, making staying committed to your self-care rituals easier. This accountability partner can help keep you on track and hold you accountable for showing up for yourself daily. Sharing your experiences, challenges, and successes with each other creates a strong support system that builds a deeper connection of growth and transformation.
Are you struggling to prioritize and maintain consistent self-care practices? Look no further than the five-day self-care kickstart challenge! This challenge is thoughtfully crafted to help you build a strong foundation for your self-care routine and integrate it seamlessly into your daily life. Over the course of five days, you’ll be guided through activities and exercises designed to enhance your self-care and overall well-being.
