Self-Care: How Do You Know When You Need It (#28SelfCareHacks)

Self-care is a practice of paying attention to what you are doing and how you are being in life. It is taking care of yourself by attending to the wellness of your body, mind, and spirit. At the heart of self-care is your relationship and connection to self. It is understanding what you need to be your most constructive, effective, and authentic self. I believe it is essential to living healthy, wholeheartedly, and happy.

Self-Care: Stay Curious (#28SelfCareHacks)

One of the lessons that I have integrated into my life from Yoga is being in inquiry. To stay curious and have a beginner’s mind continuously opens one up to new learning, different experiences, and a lot less resistance. I hate to say that I now have limited patience for those who think they know it all. Yoga has taught me that there is the potential for limitless learning — about life, about myself, about the world — which by the way changes EVERY DAMN DAY. How can anyone think that there isn’t something else to learn about one thing or everything for that matter.

Are you someone who says “I’m not a morning person"“? Well, you could be a morning person if you choose to be. I’m the first person to admit that I love to sleep in but I have learned that there are so many benefits of waking up early (yes, I mean with the sunrise) and starting my day at this time never fails to be a little bit magical.

Self-Care: Ask for Help (#28SelfCareHacks)

Today I want you to think of something you need help with. Big or small. And then ask someone to help you. Yep, you heard me. ASK. FOR. HELP.

I am notorious for not asking for help, for doing everything on my own, suffering through things just because I feel like I should be able to do everything on my own. Where the hell did I get that idea? Take it from me, this is a really crappy idea. Asking for help is a strength not a weakness.

Self-Care: Get Your Hair Done (#28selfcarehacks)

I remember when I was young my grandmothers, mother and my mother’s friends all going to get their “hair done”. They didn’t necessarily get a haircut but treated themselves to a blowout, as we say now, or getting it styled and set for the week. This usually involved curlers or and curling irons and a lot of hairspray! My mom didn’t do much for herself, but she did do this and now I know why.
