The way you use your time is the way you live your life.

Yet, when our days get busy, self-care is often the thing that we set aside. This can be especially true for many women, as we are socialized to place self-care rather low in our hierarchy of priorities.
So, while most of us can’t deny that life gets way too busy, in order to embrace all that life has to offer, we need to move self-care much closer to the top of our priorities.
Establishing (and practicing) rituals to take care of your mind, body and spirit provide rejuvenating and soothing oases in your life that ripple outward. These rituals contribute to the contentment and joy you feel in everything you do.
Not only that, but self-care rituals remind you of how important you are to YOU – forging bonds of self-trust that are vital to your growth and success.
Here are a few self-care rituals to consider. As you read through them, feel free to add others that soothe and refresh you. We are all unique, and different rituals may work better for you, so don’t be afraid to tweak these!
1. Exercise. Exercising relieves your stress and rejuvenates both your mind and body.
2. Re-acquaint yourself with the spaciousness and depth that nature provides. Nothing relaxes and nurtures like getting outdoors.
3. Set aside time to do something you really love to do.
BONUS TIP: Stay in touch with your feelings.
Engaging in activities and rituals that soothe you deep inside enriches your day-to-day existence. A regular practice of self-care also demonstrates that you truly recognize your own worth. Discover a deeply satisfying life through practicing mind, body and spirit-soothing, self-care rituals.
