Why you have to take care of yourself! // 45 Ways to Self Care like a boss.

Thursday, 20 April 2017

I am continuously understanding the importance of self-care. 
The crazier life gets, the more evident the direct link between inner and outer balance becomes.

It goes both ways: if you have problems managing your personal life, it will ultimately throw you of balance in your work life. If you can't manage work life, it will impact your personal life.

But one thing you always have to remember is:

You cannot pour from an empty cup.

It is so easy to put work over your sleep, health and well being.
So easy, that sometimes we don't even notice - until we really do, completely burned out without any strength to pull from.
You gotta take care of yourself first.

If you hold your life in strong hands, everything else will fall into place.Life will slide out of your hands, if you don't grasp tightly.

There are so many ways to take care of yourself. 
I personally love coming back to a state of mindfulness (exercises here).

Here are simple ways how to take care of yourself. You deserve to treat yourself well!
