Self-Care Rituals Re-vitalize and Refresh!

Self-Care is key to your success and satisfaction no matter what your goals and responsibilities may be.

Indeed, life gets way too busy. So busy, sometimes, that you may feel like you don’t have time to take care of yourself. But that’s a big mistake!

To embrace all that life has to offer, I advise you to move self-care to the top of your list.

The rituals you practice to take care of your mind, body and spirit both soothe and energize.  As you experience more success and joy in your moments, your feelings about time are transformed! And that affects everything you do.

5 Self-Care Rituals for YOU!

Review these self-care rituals to remind yourself how important you are. Then, revive some of your own practices or add new ones that soothe you.

  • Exercising relieves your stress and rejuvenates both your mind and body.
    • No matter where you start, getting the physical activity your body craves will revive your mood and enrich your life profoundly.
    • Try a 10-minute walk to give your mind a rest or lift your spirits. Whether you choose a brisk pace or a slow saunter to admire the landscape, consider it a gift to yourself to go for a brief stroll.
  • Re-acquaint yourself with the magic and exhilaration that nature provides. Nothing relaxes and nurtures us like getting outdoors.
    • Find time to sit on your porch and just watch the birds.
    • Take a few minutes to care for a flower garden, or go for a walk in the park.
  • Take a Bath.
    • Bathing is one of the top self-soothing moments of your day. By adjusting one or two things about your shower, it becomes a relaxing ritual you can look forward to.
    • Rather than rush through your bath or shower every morning and evening, take the time to soothe yourself by using a luscious soap or that new loofah sponge or bath puff.
    • Light scented candles, put on relaxing music, and take the time to fully enjoy your self-care time.
  • Find time to do the one thing you really love to do.
    • There’s something so delicious and special about having the time and space to do whatever it is that you get excited about. 
    • Maybe you’ve got an insatiable love of reading, but struggle to find the time to read with working and family tasks tugging at you. Or perhaps you like to sew or work with wood. No matter what your beloved activity, figure out a way to make it happen. 
    • Even if it’s every other day or once a week, an important part of self-care is doing what makes your heart sing.
  • Stay in touch with your feelings.

    • This is SO important for the deepest and most meaningful self-care! When you’re honest with yourself about how you feel, you’ll have more peace and contentment inside.
    • Living your life based on your real feelings brings comfort and joy to your heart because you are in sync with yourself. It can be a challenge to be truthful with yourself and others about how you feel. But when you do, the rewards are great. 

Self-care isn’t a luxury! Re-frame it for yourself as a responsibility.

Engaging in activities and rituals that soothe you deep inside enriches your time and your life. A regular practice of self-care demonstrates that you recognize your own worth.

You’ll deepen your experience of your moments and find more success and satisfaction by practicing soothing and energizing self-care rituals.
