Self-Care for Women: Making Sure Your Needs Are Met

Self-care can be very difficult for women because times have changed significantly. Nowadays, most women have many of the same responsibilities as they had fifty years ago, plus they work to make ends meet or because they enjoy pursuing a career. 

These intense responsibilities make it more difficult than ever for a woman to take care of her body, mind, and spirit the way that she needs to.
 
What is Self-Care?
 
Self-care is what women need to do to take care of themselves holistically on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Self-care for women means getting in touch with her inner self and pampering it. After all, you deserve to be pampered!
 
Without taking care of your entire body, mind and spirit, you can literally drive yourself to exhaustion. Plus, if you lose touch with yourself, then you’re more likely to lose touch with your family, friends, and career.
 
It’s Time to Make Time
 
Although it may seem as if time isn’t available, it’s time to make time. Start with a few minutes of me-time before bed to reflect, pray, or meditate.
 
First, determine your preferred way to care for yourself before bed. Maybe you enjoy writing in a journal to write your feelings out and reflect upon those things. Maybe you feel that listening to music while taking a bubble bath is exactly what you need. Maybe prayer or meditation helps re-center your soul.
  • Be sure to give priority to your me-time so you can meet your emotional and spiritual needs.
You want to make sure your own needs are met before trying to meet the needs of others. After all, how can you effectively meet the needs of others if you can’t even meet your own?
 
Being a woman, people turn to you for answers. They turn to you with questions about life, family, career, and just about anything under the sun. You have to be mentally prepared to take on anything, which is why self-care is very important in your life. You must be a trustworthy source for yourself before anyone else.
 
Manage the Stress in your Life
 
There are numerous demands and responsibilities placed on your shoulders, which can cause crippling stress. Reducing your stress is crucial for your physical and mental well being.
 
Managing stress includes doing things such as exercising and enjoying hobbies and other activities. If you like to work crossword puzzles, work a crossword puzzle! If you like to play computer games, play computer games! If you need a girls’ night out, call up your friends and go out! It’s crucial to eliminate as much stress as possible by taking some time to relax and enjoy yourself.
 
If you’re frustrated at work, work through those frustrations by analyzing the situation and listing the things you can do to make it better. Just letting the situation sit and simmer is not going to make it any better because it may eventually come to a boil.
 
If there are situations in your life that need attention, give them attention. This is another aspect of self-care because you’re making sure you eliminate as much conflict as possible in your life before they consume you.
 
This is especially important to women because women deal with conflict on a different level than men. Where some men duke it out on a physical level, women do it more on an emotional level.
  • You can stand your ground by keeping your body, mind, and spirit healthy.
Paying attention to your own physical, emotional and spiritual needs is paramount to a healthy well-being in today’s world. When you make self-care a priority, you’re able to fully enjoy your life on all levels.
 
Be sure to follow these self-care tips in your life. You’ll be glad you did!

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. For starters I could see the effects physically. For the first time in a long time I managed to get into the habit of Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-11-20 What governments don’t want you to know about inflation. Critics say that inflation is a form of theft from the people. Not just any old critics either! The most famous is probably John Maynard Keynes. Keynes is known as the father of our modern economic system. He said that inflation is a way to secretly confiscate an important part of the wealth of citizens. He said inflation is a hidden and destructive thing. And he said that it goes almost entirely... Read more...

My established thoughts have been challenged to look at other possibilities in a way that at times provoked conflict but at the same time it was thoroughly enlightening. Each day’s lesson was eagerly read and thought over with the application of small goals which in itself was a change of the usual habit following routine. Although not a religious course, a challenge to my thinking of religious matters came about many times and I think a whole lot of understanding and simplification... Read more...
