Making a Conscious Effort to Practice Self Care

Making a Conscious Effort to Practice Self Care

It is important to make the conscious effort to make time for yourself, strive to be spiritually grounded, and improve your energy in order to help guide you along your path in life. Even if it is just finding a moment to think and breathe.

I know our lives can be full of busy schedules and chaos with family, work, and other personal commitments. If I am completely honest with you, it wasn't until the last couple of months that I finally put my foot down to do so consistently.

The other day, I took a nice walk at Wattamolla beach walking barefoot among the sand and water taking in some deep breathes in the early morning when no one was there. As cliché as it sounds, the only words to describe that moment surrounded by the beautiful nature was true peace and serenity. I have to say that the view was just as special as the experience itself. In short, taking time out of the day to do something I loved, an integral part of practising self care, was vital for my own emotional and mental wellbeing. 

Below are some Self Care tips you can practice on a daily basis:

1. Prioritise Sleep

Sleep is essential for our physical and mental health. Make sure you’re getting enough quality sleep each night.

2. Eat a Balanced Diet

What we eat can greatly affect how we feel. Try to maintain a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains.

3. Exercise Regularly 

Regular physical activity is great for both the body and mind. Find an activity you enjoy and make it a part of your routine.

4. Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness involves being fully present in the moment. It can help reduce stress and increase self-awareness.

6. Connect with Others

Spend time with people who lift you up and understand you. Don’t hesitate to ask for support when you need it.

7. Take Breaks

It’s important to take breaks, whether it’s during your workday or a day off in your week. Time off can help prevent burnout and improve productivity.

8. Do Things You Love

Make time for hobbies and activities you love. This can help reduce stress and increase happiness.

9. Practice Self Compassion

Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself as you would treat a good friend.


Remember, self-care isn’t selfish or indulgent—it’s necessary for our well-being. So, make sure to take some time each day to care for yourself.
