As women, we are the caretakers and nurturers who hold things together, whether it is with our families, our businesses, our relationships or our personal passions. Every influential woman, whether she is a powerhouse in business or a mother who effortlessly juggles time, has a self-care routine. Self-care for women is most often associated with women’s health, but our spirits and our own thoughts also need attention. With Valentine’s Day coming up, we want to offer some ways that you can shower yourself with some well-deserved self-care.
Women tend to be their own harshest critics. Being mindful allows us to acknowledge our successes and celebrate our efforts to be the best that we can be. It is not the destination that matters, but the journey. Being mindful allows us to show kindness to ourselves as we do to others.
In today’s technology-driven world, reading has fallen by the wayside and been replaced with social media, calendar reminders and text messaging. No matter the genre, reading lets you escape to another place and immerses you in an engaging world.
Your busiest days are when finding extra time for you is challenging, but you always have time to slow down for a few minutes. Believe it or not, many women find that they are more productive when they slow down. The mind is not racing in a thousand directions, so you can focus more, and your creativity and problem solving come to the surface.
Balance Health and Well-Being
Finding a balance between health and well-being is paramount for women, yet many women learn to manage the effects of symptoms rather than seeking guidance from a women’s health expert. As part of your self-care routine, make a list of physical and emotional symptoms that keep you from feeling and doing your best, and set aside some time for a consultation.
