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!

I have always realized that it is important to live a balanced life but I must be honest that until I did this program I never truly understood just how important it is and what a difference it makes.

Wealth Insight 2009-09-25 Instinct or indoctrination? We taste a new dish. We like it or dislike it. We call it being individual. A matter of personal taste. We meet someone new. We instantly trust or mistrust them. We call it instinct. Gut feel. Intuition. We encounter a new idea. We instantly trust or mistrust it. Instinct, again. Gut feel. Intuition. Are we right or are we wrong? Mostly it doesn’t matter. If your job is not about food, then who cares? If you’ll never see the... Read more...

  I saw what a difference The Challenge made to my brother’s life. Not necessarily financial, although it is going well in that department. It is difficult to really pinpoint the real difference – it just looks like everything flows. I did The Challenge with sport in my mind. Read more...

I have always somehow felt the need and want to make a change to my life, but have never been able to succeed or progress in any attempt. I have bought diaries, planners, used computer diaries, completed personal development courses, got excited, only to use them for a short while and then they become ornaments. Read more...

I have always known that I am responsible for my own destiny – if I don’t like the way my life is panning out, only I can change it;  I cannot expect anybody else to do it for me. The big question for me was how?   I had been searching for something for so long, with the feeling that if I kept on looking eventually Read more...
