I’ve touched on this a few times before and am writing now to reiterate the importance of taking care of what you see in the mirror …
I’m sure you will agree with me when I say; focusing on mental health, physical well-being and essentially ‘taking care of you‘ has become one of the hottest topics in today’s society.
You can’t look online without seeing a quote, a transformation story or some form of ‘inspiration’ to live your best life.
Much of this can seem OTT, too full-on and very often fake AF … because we all know; what we see is (9 times out of 10!) a highlight reel of a curated life. People want you to think they are living a ‘perfect’ existence #notpossible
However, you could begin to look at this mass of content in a positive manner … Admittedly, sometimes it can be overbearing to see uppers all the time when you’ve got real life to contend with … BUT you really could stop mindlessly scrolling and start taking it in, while thinking;
”Hey, you know what, I do need to make a little change here and there. The time is now! I am going to make an effort for myself today/ tomorrow/ this week …”
You could begin to absorb the daily overload of ‘YOU GOT THIS!’ content as pointers of where you can improve your self-care regime and step up your physical #youtime.
I absolutely love it when I hear you having read my posts and feeling inspired to go and do something good for yourself. The sooner you take one step in a new direction, the sooner you start to reap health and mindset benefits! You have nothing to lose!
I read this online today and think you will agree it makes a lot of sensible sense;
“Regular exercise changes the brain to improve memory, thinking skills. There are plenty of good reasons to be physically active. Big ones include reducing the odds of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Maybe you want to lose weight, lower your blood pressure, prevent depression, or just look better”
With these words in mind, I ask you;
1) What reason(s) in this statement apply to you?
2) What self-care favour can you do for yourself today?
If you wake up tomorrow and make just one, single change to help your body and mind imagine how good you will feel for it!
Then X that feeling by 7 if you do it for a week and X it by 28 if you do it for a month! (You get where I’m going with this…)
Look after what you see in the mirror. Love yourself! Not in a vain way but in a life-affirming way – self-love is needed.
If you are struggling with your self-worth and can’t find it in you to do it for yourself then take action for those that love you – be your best you for the people who matter most 💫
