Self Care is not all Bubble Baths and Cupcakes!

I’ve only recently actually started to reflect on what self care is and what it means. When someone asked me what I do for self care, I would always answer, “I don’t know! Nothing I guess!” Ask anyone who knows me fairly well and they will tell you that I am not a person who is easily in tune with myself it takes a lot of patience and a lot of work for me to answer the tough questions.

When I really started to think about it, I practice self care every day and didn’t even realize it.

I go to the gym every day in the morning, not because I want a hot body, but because I love being strong and enjoy the atmosphere. I plan out my food and meals every day because I love eating and looking forward to what goes into my belly next! I go to bed early most days because I love the feeling of waking up refreshed and not tired and cranky. I read a novel instead of watching TV because I love how the characters make me feel like I am right there in the moment with them.

Some other not so glamorous things that are self care is, washing the dishes by hand every night, because I like a clean kitchen in the mornings. Doing laundry once a week because I do not like folding laundry more than that. Making sure that all my bills are paid on time, because I know how important it is to financial security and I don’t like being stressed out about it.
