“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” -Eleanor Brown
Self-care is a term we hear on a regular basis. However, how often do you evaluate your self-care? Are you feeling burned out? Or, do you wake up feeling replenished each day? It is important to really think about what this term means and how to implement it into our daily lives.
During the end of the year, the busyness of the holidays consumes us. It also seems that in the blink of an eye it comes and goes. January brings new resolutions and the idea of fresh new beginnings. Sometimes the resolutions stick, and sometimes we feel stuck, wondering where this year will lead us. One thing is for sure, the beginning of a new year is a perfect time to bring a renewed focus on opportunities for self-care.
It is important to take a look at our own personal self-care and make sure we are taking care of ourselves; mind, body and soul. What is it that motivates you each day? What sustains your drive? Make sure you are continuing to do what you enjoy, so you can keep serving others from your full cup.
Be kind to yourself. Take time to enjoy the little things. Remember who you are and what brings you joy. Always continue taking care of yourself so you can continue to be the best version of yourself to the world around you.
