How To Be Good To Yourself

Women typically have a difficult time getting their needs met. Traditionally, women have seen themselves as nurturers. They are the ones who will give without expecting anything in return. They are in charge of the needs of everyone else, with no regard for their own. Women are the ones who will think of their children and their homes and they often have career and money matters to think about as well.

Although most women will stoically go through and deal with it all, it can get a bit overwhelming at times. It is difficult for a woman today to find time to take care of herself in the way she needs to. However, it is important that she does so.
 
What does Self-Care mean?
 
Self-care for women is when a woman gets in touch with herself and pampers herself in a number of different ways. If you are like most women, you tend to put yourself last and everyone else first.
 
However, if you do not take care of yourself mentally and emotionally then you are heading towards complete exhaustion. When this happens, you are not only no good to yourself, but also no good to all those around you as well. If you are too tired and exhausted all of the time you can never be available to your spouse or your family when they really need you.
 
Make some “Me” time
 
Of course you will make excuses as to why you do not have the time to care for yourself. But you have to make the time. It does not have to be a lot of time - you can start by taking a few minutes before you go to bed to read, reflect, pray or meditate. This is your me-time. Take time to do whatever you want, whether it is something relaxing or some other vigorous activity.
 
If you enjoy writing in a diary every night before bed, do that. If you like reading, knitting, sewing, then take a few minutes to read before settling in. It is not selfish to get your own needs met. You cannot expect to effectively be able to take care of anything if you do not have your own needs met. There are many women who believe that it is ok to give up everything for their husbands and children. While the family is undoubtedly of prime concern and importance, you are just as important.
 
Manage your daily stress
 
With all of the demands that are placed on you, you will most likely have stress. Some of the stress can be crippling. If you want to take care of yourself mentally and physically, it is necessary to reduce your stress levels.
 
There are many ways that you can reduce your stress level. Some people find that doing something physical will reduce their stress levels. Others find that a mentally challenging stimulation will reduce their stress. Find something that you like to do that alleviates your stress levels and do it.
 
Look for a solution to the problem rather than just letting it fester and get worse. If the job is the problem, look for a way that you can leave that job and find another. If money is the problem, then look for another way to supplement your present income. Today, with ever increasing opportunities for stay at home jobs, it is easier than ever before to find ways to make some extra money without even leaving our home.
 
If you want to be healthy, both mentally and physically, it is crucial that you pay attention to your own needs. When you employ self-care in your life, you will be able to not only take better care of yourself, but also of those around you and the tasks that need accomplishing. Follow these self-care tips to be the woman that you want to be!

Where to start that is the question? There have been so many changes since I started this challenge. I think the best place to start will be from the beginning.   I first discovered Hannes's web site "property school" on my search for property investments and Read more...

When I decided to do the Kaizen Challenge I was at the lowest point in my life, having endured several years of nothing but one disaster after another – and I was totally lost and did not know how to turn my life around. My daily mantra was “I must have been very Read more...

I approached the Kaizen Challenge at first very skeptically mainly due to the fact that I have already started reading self improvement books and though I know it all already. I had some successes but mainly failures (and mostly in terms of money). I never realized why as I thought as I exhibiting the right behaviors and Read more...

Hier is my opdrag vir die Kaizen uitdaging les 49. Ek glo dat jy dit seker in Engels sou verkies, maar alhoewel ek goed tweetalig is, sal ek nie reg aan die opdrag kan laat geskied as ek dit nie in Afrikaans doen nie. Ek weet jy verkies dat dit nie minder as 400 woorde moet wees nie en indien ek dit nie maak nie, sal dit bloot wees omdat Read more...
