Wouldn’t It Be Cool If You Could Stop Spreading Yourself Too Thin And Start Putting Yourself First

Today on B Blissful With B, I share the self care tips that I wish someone would have told me when I was getting started. With so much going on in our lives it is often difficult to ourselves first but as the old saying goes you can't pour from an empty cup. When we are getting started with self care rituals it can often be discouraging when we don't see results fast, when we feel like we aren't doing it "right" or when it feels challenging create time for ourselves. So my top tips for starting a self care practice are: 1. Remember that it doesn't all happen over night. I often say that transformation is a bunch of subtle shifts added up over time. Don't expect to do one meditation and immediately feel better. Know that it takes time. 2. You don't have to do "all of the things" during your self care time. With so many ways to practice self care from yoga to meditation to journaling to nature walks to visualizations and more, it is sometimes hard to find which ones are best for you especially when outsiders suggest that they know that way. The only way to know what is best for you is to try each practice on, maybe for a day, maybe for a week, maybe a month! But don't feel like you have to do all of the things all of the time, if your list of self care "non-negotiables" is too long it might feel like a chore list that leaves you resistant, discouraged and frustrated. Each day do only what feels good for you and forget the rest. 3. The first 10-60 min a day set tone for whole day. If you can do your self care practice right when you wake up it is the best time. Most of us already have busy mornings getting ready for our day so it is likely that you will need to get up a little bit earlier to really commit to your self care. Some experts say it takes 21 days to break an old habit and 21 days to form a new one, so AT LEAST 42 days before it stops feeling hard. Others suggest that it might take up to 66 days to really start getting in the flow of it! So don't give up on yourself. Continue committing to showing up until not practicing self care is harder than actually doing it. I found that having a set bed time routine helps me to stick to my morning routine.
