Engage in Self-Care
People love to make fun of those who spend a lot of time on themselves, calling them vain or egotistical. But the truth is this: it’s neither. You deserve some truly fantastic self-care.
If you’re not already taking care of you, it’s time to start now.
“Self-care,” as Kaiser writes, “has nothing to do with what you do, but why you do it.” For some, self-care looks like an awesome beauty routine. For others, it means taking adequate alone-time with a great book and a cup of tea. For still more, it’s a couple of hours at the gym three days a week.
No matter what, though, it must always come from a place of love, and it must help you be both healthy and happy.
So, instead of getting stuck on what you don’t deserve or what you’re doing wrong, focus on giving your Self what it needs.
Make a list of all the activities that help you be your best self—this could be anything from exercise, to education, to cuddling with your cat.
Now, do these things. Prioritize them each day. In doing so, you’ll show an abundance of love to yourself.
