Some days you just don’t wanna do ANYTHING! Maybe you don’t wanna get out of bed, or go to work, or exercise...you just don’t wanna face the day. .
Days like these are an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about your needs. Do you need to rest? Do you need to exercise but take it a bit more gently? Or do you need a kick in the ass? Do you need to get out of your head and JUST DO? Having you been saying yes to others and no to yourself? Are holding resentment towards people you’ve over-given your time to? Taking responsibility for where you are at is one of the first steps to knowing what you need. .
Self-care can come in many forms and sometimes it’s being willing to admit to yourself when you’re making excuses for your situation. i.e. “I’m mad because I’ve been giving my children/my partner/my friends EVERYTHING and I’m not getting anything in return”. This is your problem, not there’s! Nobody can do the hard work for you or be responsible for making you feel better but YOU! Learning how to navigate that relationship is essential to your health and wellbeing. Make you a TOP priority! If you don’t you’ll just keep spinning your wheels. #healthgoals
