Understanding Self-Care and its Significance

The obvious definition of self-care is fairly straightforward: it is putting one’s self out of harm’s way. Alternately, it can be considered having control over things around you. However, to make it possible, you will need to detail your plan as to how you intend to achieve self-care.

Self-care is not about basic hygiene or health practices. On the contrary, self-care is specifically all about doing what’s good for your spirit, your own self, and your entire person.

Creating a Grounded Self-Care Roadmap
 
In order to determine if a self-care map has the power to achieve what you believe it will, this roadmap must have the ability to focus your thoughts on achieving everything you set out to do. This roadmap must outline your objectives, your cherished value system, and your purpose of being. Your roadmap, which can act as the material manifestation of your resolution, reminds you just what you aim to hold true, and what you commit yourself to pursue doing over time.
 
  • A strong self-care plan gives you a roadmap on what it is you want to gain, and how intend to gain it.
Motivate yourself by constantly surrounding yourself with inspiring anecdotes. This is a good way to enrich yourself spiritually while helping you focus on taking care of yourself. You now have a head start, because you are armed with a self-care plan and tiny bits of motivation around you to help you remember what you’ve committed yourself to doing. You should also provide yourself with inspirational quotes and affirmations.
 
You can also display motivational images in your own house or workplace: these may be scenic spots you have visited or intend to see in the future.
 
These images that you constantly see around you can be what you want to more or less integrate in your everyday life or a memory of something in the past that gives you a desire to become more proactive. You can also display images of your loved ones.
 
  • A self-care roadmap should act as enough motivation and reminder of the reasons why you are committed to taking care of yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually.

A self-care plan is also a good way to monitor how your plan is progressing. If you’re having difficulty getting yourself to workout, a self-care plan can detail the amount of time you’ve dedicated to working out daily. This will then help you keep track of your consistency.

A food diary integrated in a self-care plan enables you to note what you eat, and to motivate yourself to eat food that’s good for you. You can also keep a diary to help you take into consideration the wellness of your mind and your emotions.
 
  • A self-care roadmap helps show how far along you are in getting where you want to be. 
You can integrate the details of your self-care plan in the decisions you make so that you maintain consistency when you care for your inner self as well as your outer self.

How to Make Your Own a Self-Care Resolution
 
You must push yourself to pursue the creation of a self-care resolution. This may seem like a difficult thing to even begin. So, you must ensure that even at the very start, you already have a constant source of inspiration and initiative as you go along.
 
Take into consideration what motivators have worked excellently for you in the past. Use these again as you pursue this new goal of caring for yourself.

Surround yourself with people who can motivate you, like relatives, friends, or your partner. They can also be excellent in helping monitor how you are keeping what you promised yourself to do. They can help you refocus your energies if you get momentarily distracted.
 
It is necessary to have a detailed plan in order to ensure that you are able to see your self-care plan through. Satisfy your own personal needs by caring for yourself first. Once you’ve done that, you’re on track to be able to meaningfully help others along the way.

The Kaizen Challenge, was it life changing? I would like to think of it as mind changing, because that is where it all starts, and that is how it becomes life changing. A lot of things however have already changed. The biggest for Read more...

My biggest challenge during the Kaizen Challenge was doing the challenge and completing it. I am a pilot (ex-helicopter pilot and again in the future) and no two days in a row are the same. I never go to bed at the same time due to different flight schedules (one day getting up at 03:45 to start work at 04:45 and going to bed the next day at midnight due to a late landing. Then next week I am doing an international flight Read more...

The first physical change that Kaizen Challenge has made to me is starting my day off the same way – with reading and silence. This has given me the clarity of mind, each day, to see what issues are troubling me and what I need to do to sort out those issues. I find I am now able to look at the “bigger picture” each day Read more...
