Self-Care Serves Everyone

Yes, I know it’s a corny title. But many of us enjoy corny content. And that’s what this article is going to be, some corniness on self-care, but with a dash of Feria style.

Look, we all like attention. We all enjoy being desired by others. We’re social beings.

We desire things like interaction, conversation, being close to those we care about (all of which are important).

Nothing wrong with that, as long as it’s all done in a healthy manner.

But self-care is about finding comfort in your own company.

Hey, you know what? That’s not always easy.

But it’s necessary for not only our own health, but the health of those around us.

A Period of Self-Care

It’s important for us to take periods of self-care. This will look different for everyone.

It may be setting aside an hour a day to meditate. It may also be taking a couple of weeks for yourself to rest and reflect.

At the writing of this article, I’m taking my own period of self-care. For me, its being present, finding thanks in what I have, and who I am, in spite of my short-comings.

I don’t want to dwell on mistakes of the past, nor be anxious about the immediate future.

I just want to be engaged with the present moment. To work on myself, and channel my emotions in a healthy way.

My routine mostly includes writing, going on walks, and exercise. Learning how to be alone, without feeling so lonely.

I enjoy writing my thoughts. It allows for self-reflection. And I’m lucky to have this blog that allows me to shares these experiences.

Slow Down

We’re always in such a hurry. Yes, I’m guilty of this. But the last thing we want to do is race to the end of our lives.

I’m learning to slow it the f*ck down.

There’s no need to race against time.

And I’m telling you, this is powerful for your mental and emotional health.

Knowing that your time in this life is limited, and you don’t want to burn through every second with hurry, impatience, and anxiousness.

It’s okay to slow down.

Self-Care Benefits Everyone

I understand that as a human, I have flaws in my personality.

Part of my self-care is recognizing those flaws, and letting go of them.

Learning from my mistakes, and doing better today.

Self-care for me is about finding that inner confidence. Sometimes we lose sight of it.

I want to be a better person. For myself.

When I can find comfort and happiness within myself, its only then that I can share those qualities with those around me.

And that is the power of self-care. It benefits you, and everyone around you.

And because I promised you a dash of Feria style, I’ll conclude with this statement:

Self-care is sexy.■
