5 Steps for Self-Care

It is important to put yourself first. Take care of your well-being. Relax and breath. There will be obstacles in life that will disrupt our daily living, so it will be essential for us to put our self in a healthy mindset. Five easy steps to do daily for self-care:

  1. Meditate. Take five minutes daily to meditate clear your mind, and breathe.
  2. Be grateful. Think of all the blessing you have. 
  3. Exercise. Move your body at least 30 min daily. 
  4. Self-love. Say something positive about yourself whether is internal or external. 
  5. Eat healthy. Your body is a beautiful temple, eat for a purpose. 

Be Grateful

Life will not be easy. You will be weary. There are times in my life I feel with so much potential and strength to overcome obstacles. Other times I do not feel motivated to show up to my regular schedule. I have learn to show up, and be there, see where the world will take me. Observe your surrounding and where you are at the moment, and just be grateful. A special moment in time will not occur twice. Breathe, live, and be grateful. You are Blessed.

Be Unique

There was a time in my life I enjoyed pleasing others. I was the people pleaser who hardly said NO to anybody. I wanted people to like me, and to be a genuine friend to them. I always said what you wanted to hear. I was never the honest friend, I wanted you to like me. Through the years Life taught me so much about people, and the power we had to control many things in our life. I was never a negative person I desired to be good to others. One day I realized I did not have to be friends with toxic people who overwhelmed and drained me. I could say NO to them because I was not entitle to do anything for them. I was not a jerk about it, it just took me time to realize my worth in life. I started Loving myself more, I took care of myself, I enjoyed being with myself. I said YES to myself. Life will hit you hard sometimes, but as long as you have yourself there for encouragement, and motivation nothing will ever stop you.

Is it Quarter Life Crisis?

Life at twenty-five years old it is hella hard. I mean you have all these goals you want to achieve, and it seems there is not time for them. I have caught up myself worrying about my future, my career, and my financial status. Now, this has caused me to feel anxious, and stress. Lately I have stopped myself to take a deep breath and focused on the situations I am able to manage, and make a list of goals to achieve daily. It is great to dream big, and want more for oneself, but it is important to take care of our well-being. It has been a priority for myself to balance my spiritual, mental, and physical health. I believe this helps us achieve many things in life. I am no expert in counseling, yet. However, it is my goal to one day be a professional counselor, so I can help many powerful women achieve their ultimate goals in life. As in for now, I am still looking for inspiration to keep going in life. Take a breath. You are only human.
