THE IMPORTANCE OF SELF CARE...



Do we care for ourselves enough???
Just something to think about, whether it be mentally or physically..
According to Google "Self Care is the actions that individuals take for themselves, on behalf of and with others in order to develop, protect, maintain and improve their health, wellbeing and wellness."



Sometimes life itself can be overwhelming, especially for women, and be a bit extra (well a lot more) for mums. Maybe you have tons of projects piling up at home or your calendar may be packed with overdue task, it might even be that you are overwhelmed at work. for some of us , to make room for these stuff we skip a meal; we forget to do our daily exercise; we skip our morning facial routine. just these little daily self care routines, because we get so caught up into getting other stuff done, whether for your kids, chores at home or in the office.
Before you know it, your hair is a mess, you are missing a nail( for those who wear extensions) or only four out of ten nails have polish on them... if you get what I mean.. you get irritated or angry at the smallest little things, and without you even know it, here come stress!

As simple as the phrase "Self Care" may sound it isn't just important its crucial. Its soo easy to forget  about taking care of ourselves because we are "too busy". But why not just STOP!!!
Take some time for yourself, use some of that money you got from working those extra hours and go get your hair done. Relax, put your feet up and get a pedicure. I mean you deserve it , after walking around  all week ensuring everyone else is happy.
Most of us believe that the more you sacrifice, the bigger the award. I'm a strong believer of this as well. Of course, hard work pays off, and who doesn't want their homes to nice, comfy and clean and for sure taking care of the family is a must. But while making these sacrifices, give yourself a break, and just be you!!


Make your favourite meal, go out with friends and have a drink (my favourites are Pina Calada and Strawberry and Cream Baileys lol). Do your daily exercise , whether at home like myself or in the gym. just the little things that makes you happy. Take a some time away from the kids. Not that that you are tired if taking care of them; not that you are being selfish, its just a little time to take care of you..
I'm not just writing from just knowledge of what self care means or how lack of it can affect us. I'm writing from my experience. Everything I've written is what I've experienced. From the chipped nails to the messy hair, to being annoyed and moody, I've been there, even recently lol. But as soon as I go get my hair done ,do my nails. just basically take a break. I felt like ME again. I literally looked in the mirror and say "wow she's gorgeous" haha.. no I'm not vain. but sometimes we do need a little reassurance.
Self Care helps us to rejuvenate, it help with our mental health and most definitely helps us to perform better in whatever task at hand. It also manage our stress level and I know it sure makes me feel more confident. So ladies, take back control, do things that makes you fell good, balanced, confident and attractive.


"When you say 'yes' to others, make sure you are not saying 'no' to yourself"

Found this photo of this outstanding art on Facebook  with a caption "the weight of a woman's shoulder". This art piece says soo much. We have so many responsibilities not just mums but women on a whole. But who says we can't be gorgeous, happy and confident while getting the job done.

 Thanks for stopping my loves, good night and good morning
Loads of love xx
