You Are Already a Self-Care Superstar

September 27, 2019

 

Feel like you don't have enough time to give yourself the

Love You Deserve? 

 

The truth is, you already have self care routines everyday and

YOU ROCK THEM!

You just haven't realized that your simple, daily routines are actually self-care.

 

So many of you tell me that you don't have the time and wish you could squeeze self-care routines into your schedule, but I am telling you now that you already have a pretty solid self-care routine but most likely are lacking intention or attention, therefore, missing the part that brings you joy and peace.

 

Now, I hope I have you wondering: What do you do every day that involves some self care and self love?

 

Here are some examples of self-care that you are probably ALREADY doing: brushing your hair, shaving your legs, applying moisturizer to your skin, washing your face, eating a healthy snack, taking a nap when your body is tired, cleaning your house, blasting your favorite jam in the car, making yourself dinner, spending a few minutes writing in a journal.

 

These are all considered daily, maybe even mundane tasks, but what makes them self-care rituals is Setting Your Intention to be that of health, love and happiness and then Paying Attention to how these things make you feel. 

 

"Set an Intention and then Pay Attention" ...the simple mantra for turning your everyday routine into a Self Care routine.

 

No matter how much time (or lack of time) you have in your day, there is always something that can be done to show yourself

You are Worth It.

I've created this little cheat sheet for you to make self-care a breeze and easily added to your every day schedule. Simply pick one and set your intention that this will be an act of Self Love and pay attention, actually feeling love for yourself, while you do it:
