Self-Care List + Strategies

Self-care is an important topic that we do not lay ample emphasis on which is quite wrong, it is a necessary ingredient needed in completing the recipe for life. And self-care checklists or self-care ideas can direct you.

First, for adequate self-care, you need a handful of patience, a heart of compassion, heaping cups of esteem, barons of worth, spoons of understanding, sweetened with acceptance and lungs full of laughter.

In the struggle of balance, we create bridges and boundaries from our challenges when we ought to cultivate and build bricks of growth, we devolve so much in our emotions that we diffuse our light, we let things go on default mood by neglecting ourselves, beating our worth down with self-criticism sometimes questioning our experience and outlining charts of comparison.

Self-care is the act of tending and caring for yourself, setting healthy priorities for you which needs to be valued and practiced more often. It is the ability to put yourself first and not anchored to selfishness.

Self-care is how you take your power, withdrawing from burnouts, recharging, restoring and replenishing the flames and magic smuggled in your soul.

Sometimes survival can push an anchor of unrest and struggle that we need physical self-care to take a step from everything and revaluate. Not just for ourselves but to discover a better version for the lives we touch.

Self-Care List + Strategies

Sometimes we let fear measure our dreams, possibilities, and goals, we let uncertainties set boundaries to our resilience, vibrancy, we cut down the momentum in our soul halfway down the journey of conquering; all because of our fears.

We induce reluctance into our bones and stain our soul with the limitation of exploring the version of ourselves.

We cage our potentials behind bars and prisons of uncertainty, limit the flame burning inside of us, wrap our tongue around negativity as she walks her way into our throat and builds a hive of compression.

We let experience teach us to shred authenticity rather than embracing a version of ourselves.

We are raided by the parade of aesthetics that we are forced to lose ourselves at the core of our journey. We dilute the territory of our strength to fit which is all wrong because owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do.

Self-care and self- love isn’t selfish, it is a deliberate action to gift yourself with people, places, things, events, and opportunities that recharge your personal battery and promote your whole health—body, mind, and spirit.

So do not let self-doubt and criticism grease your wheels; unravel, unpack, learn and unlearn in the struggle of climbing upward, do not sabotage the greats thing because you don’t feel worthy.

In the quest of discovery, scampering around seeking and finding ourselves, we build museums of doubt, we shelf our worth on the stand or album of acceptance. Let our mind be housed by negativity, rallying around self-doubts and fears when caring for ourselves is the best form of survival.
