I’m often asked “How do you recharge?” “What do YOU do to take care of yourself?”
Excellent and appropriate questions. I can't be using my platform promoting self-care and not be a living example. While I remain a work in progress and continue to learn my in the moment and day to day self-care needs, I thought it may be helpful to share how I recharge daily.
Each day, especially after engaging in any activity that is physically, ,mentally or emotionally taxing, I check in with myself using my 5 Pillars of Self-Care:
Are my basic Self-Care needs met?
Which of my core-value based self-care activities do I need to engage in?
Am I honoring my boundaries? Have my boundaries been violated?
How can I give myself some grace?
How can I activate the relaxation response?
I try to be intentional about doing this throughout my day.
Yes it’s work, and IT WORKS.
No matter your profession or career path, you can't be a top performer if you don't feel well.
