Self-care is often the first thing we think about after a hard day at work or after taking care of the kids. It is also the last thing we do before going to bed at night. I created this guide to remind us of the importance of self-care.
Her life as a self-proclaimed workaholic
Workaholics are people who can’t or don’t want to take a break. They don’t go home when they get tired; they go home when they are too exhausted to continue working. Workaholics tend to work long hours without taking breaks. They take phone calls at the office, answer questions on the phone, meet with clients during business hours, and they never stop working. The reason they never stop working is because they have no choice but to work.
After working at several startups, she’s learned what it takes to be successful in the workplace. But this doesn’t mean that she’s never enjoyed her downtime. For example, she loves spending time with her boyfriend and family. She says, “My personal relationships are probably the most important thing in my life.”
Why she decided to write a book
When I had my daughter a few years ago, I was overwhelmed with all of the responsibilities that came with that decision.
Writing this book was a big decision. Not only do I not know anything about writing books, I don’t know much about business, but I wanted to share my own experience with others who might feel the same way I did when starting their business. I believe that if you follow your passion, you will find success in everything you do.
Her advice for anyone who struggles with self-care and self-improvement
But I’m learning, and I’m improving. In the last year, I’ve developed a healthy eating habit, which I’m still trying to keep. And I’ve learned some important lessons, such as how to eat without guilt, how to manage my emotions and stress, and how to improve my life overall.
We all get caught up in our own little worlds and don’t pay attention to the bigger picture. What you need to remember is that you’re only a small piece of the puzzle, and the whole world isn’t going to implode if you fail to make your bed. It might even help you to realize that some things are better left undone.
Introduction of the book: What is self-care? Why should you practice it?
Self-care is the act of taking care of yourself and putting your own needs first. Whether it’s attending to your physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual needs, it is a form of self-care that is a necessity for anyone who hopes to remain balanced and happy. Self-care is a vital part of life because it gives us the time and energy to do everything else. Without self-care, life becomes overwhelming and draining. It makes us tired, anxious, and stressed.
As mentioned earlier, self-care is really the sum total of actions you take to promote your own well-being, both physically and mentally. These actions range from sleeping more and exercising to taking time to meditate. I’ve included specific practices below that I believe are beneficial to anyone who wants to start practicing more self-care in their lives.
The 3 steps to self-care: What is self-care? How can you apply this principle in
There are three stages to any healthy lifestyle change. First comes the awareness, which can be defined as the realization that something needs to change. After this comes the decision. Then, finally, the actual implementation. Each stage is essential. Without the awareness, there’d be no motivation for change, without the decision, there’d be no action. Together, awareness, decision and action form the self-care formula.
The first psychology principle on this list is probably the most well-known in the eyes of the average consumer, though most might not know it by it’s name: It’s urgency. In ecommerce, urgency works like this: in order for visitors to buy now and not later, they have to be presented with information or facts that convince them that it’s in their best interest to do so. For urgency to work as an effective persuasion technique and sales driver, the consumer has to actually believe that buying now is the best option for them.
Self-care is an important part of anyone’s life. But what does it actually mean? Does it mean that you should ignore all the other parts of your life so that you can focus on you? What if you have a million other things going on? Do you have to sacrifice your career, friends, relationships, family, or even your health? No. The truth is, you need to take care of you. Learn how to take care of you in this guide.
