The Importance of a Self Care Morning Routine
Taking care of yourself may feel selfish, but if you think about it, taking care of yourself only helps you better take care of your loved ones. When you give yourself the care and love you need, you have more to give others. More energy. More patience. More love.
It’s not selfish to put yourself first – it’s actually selfless.
Creating a self care routine can help you ease into your day feeling calmer and more capable to take on whatever comes your way. When you have a solid morning routine in place, it’s one less thing you have to think about during the day.
And we all know how valuable our mental energy is as moms!
Making time for a Self Care Every Day
And self care is, but how do we find the time for it in our already busy schedules?
The answer, create a routine that brings self care into your life. Make a commitment to this routine until it becomes a habit. Once you see how your self care routine improves the quality of your day and life, you will not want to give it up!
Creating a new habit really isn’t about doing something for a certain number of days, it is about doing something consistently. It’s a good idea to take a pause after several weeks or months of implementing a new routine or habit to take stock of how things are going and what tweaks or improvements you can make as you move forward.
It is also good to take time to celebrate the work you put in to take care of yourself and move your life in the direction of your choosing!
Sometimes we feel that if we miss a day we should give up completely. This is not the case at all. We are human, if you miss a day for whatever reason, give yourself grace, and pick back up where you left off.
