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!

Wealth Insight 2009-06-12 How Wealth Creators think is how they get rich If you want to break through the thinking that says – making money is hard; it takes years; it takes money to make money; it is very risky; it’s winner take all; most people take the gamble and don’t win; and a tiny handful of blessed or lucky or talented or well-connected people take the lion’s share ... ... then I strongly, strongly recommend that you take a look at my... 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...

To think back 49 days is to realize “that you do not know what you don’t know”!  To now, for the first time in my life, discover the truth and nothing but the truth, is fantastic!  We know that the oldest trick the devil uses, is to take the truth and twist it a little bit – I call it the hamburger effect:  Nice, attractive lies, the twisted truth, covered by some more nice, attractive lies….and we fall for it every time? Read more...
