“Self-care is the mindset, activities, practices and habits we bring to bear against stress, unhappiness, illness, depression and negative emotions. It’s the most important thing to treat yourself with”
I think there are several ways to practice self-care and it’s something I have been reflecting over a lot lately. Besides soaking in fresh air and some much needed vitamin D (the weather has been AMAZING the last few days!), slowly incorporating better food habits and getting my regular physical activity on my agenda, I have decided to practice other forms of self-care. The moment I sat down with a piece of paper and a pen to write down the best self-care tips that works for me right now, I also became aware of how much I have changed as a person this past year. Priorities are shifting and I have a clear vision on how I want to spend my time..
Here’s my best self-care tips right now;
♥ Learn to love your own company
