Embrace the Art of Self-Care for Increased Self-Regulation and Resilience – TherapyTribe

It’s amazing how many times I hear that people don’t have time to take care of themselves… when their life literally depends on it… I don’t know if they consider self-care to be. a luxury – like having a day at the spa or lying in a chair eating candy – that they shouldn’t have? But really, in our time, not prioritizing personal care when it at least increases resilience? I see self-care as a duty and a responsibility to ensure our well-being and our ability to show ourselves with our best selves and create the relationship and life we ​​desire … It is our duty to embrace the art of self-care …

When we embrace self-care as part of our daily responsibilities, we experience a change in how we prioritize, how we approach our day, and how we are able to create the time for it …

A rich practice of self-care assures us:

~ Optimizing our functioning and well-being – health, vitality, energy, mood, concentration and bandwidth …

~ Are anchored and connected with ourselves, that we are solid in our core and operate with authenticity …

~ Are aligned with our goal, that we are creative, progressive and productive.

When we invest in ourselves in this way, we show ourselves Love and Compassion. Feed. We have our backs … We are here for ourselves, we do not abandon ourselves

It is very interesting that the partners who suffer or struggle the most, feel overwhelmed and not supported, and complain that their partner is not there enough for them – are the partners who focus the least on their own back… They focus on what the other does or does not do for them, as opposed to what they do for themselves…

The focus on the other leads them to make the whole thing even more difficult and to take care of oneself even more important for its self-regulating properties …

When partners do approach your day with intention and a little self-esteem (self-care) and rush through their day putting out fires and letting themselves be drawn in 100 different directions, they will be hit and rejected for what they want to accomplish. This is one of the meanest ways for us to go about our day and treat ourselves, right after fighting with our own thinking …

We want to be kind and kind to ourselves, so that we can become the best version of ourselves and presenting ourselves with our best self, authentic self, more and more systematically. So we can show ourselves well to create our best relationship and our best life – our successful relationship and our meaningful life … So we can have our best human experience …

When we invest in ourselves with a rich self-care practice, we are more regulated, contained, grounded, patient, responsive, motivated, happy, compassionate, present, peaceful, resourceful, enthusiastic, grateful, open, flexible, strong, secure, sensitive, sane, cheerful, forgiving, generous, and well more…

It is up to us to take care of ourselves to have a real good life …

I understand that taking the time to take care of yourself can seem frivolous when we have what seems more important tasks on our agenda… I can still fall into this misconception sometimes when I create very ambitious agendas… Believe me, I understand. When you’re super-efficient, you can be your own worst enemy …

But I challenge you to seriously try when you realize that you can actually be more productive in less time with more ease and joy, save your marriage and raise amazing children, then you get hooked!

You can start slow, you don’t have to flip the switch and start with some drastic and extreme self-care. There is a whole range, a spectrum to embrace the art of self-care. Your self-care practice is what you make it into and what you want it to be.

In mine:

-I have my basics totally missing and feel the impact if I skip them for some reason.

-Then I add another layer as I am ready to create the time for it.

-And, so I can really step it up when I feel the need for more or just kicks to take things to the next level …

I know that when you are having difficulty, it is very difficult for them to think about it and forget to act to implement the simplest activity.

The key to overcoming the bump is to proactively and preventively expand our mindset, take responsibility for our well-being, and adjust our daily routine so that the practice of self-care becomes automatic. … It is the art of taking care of yourself …

Your self-care practice can include any activity that recharges, restores, rejuvenates and gives you joy… Activities that reconnect you to your Higher Self are the best… These tend to give the most for the investment… They are generally a practice of mindfulness …

Activities can be physical, mental, social and spiritual and can take any form. The key is to break away from the usual noise and intentionally do something for yourself. Some activities give you little value and positive impact, others are super rich… More is not necessarily better… It is up to you to create the flavor of your practice and decide how much and how much you want to invest in it. benefits you are looking for.

A practice rich in personal care improves vitality, youth, longevity, happiness, connection, love, success … It’s up to you to decide how you want to make your life. Do you want to struggle or sink easily?

Embracing the art of self-care guarantees you to make yourself, your relationship and your life effortless, with grace, and with joy …
