Benefits of Self-Care

The health benefits of self-care are many, but the most important one is that practicing self-care leads to relief from stress, which we all need. But aside from simply feeling better, here are a couple unexpected benefits of focusing on self-care:
When you learn how to say “no” to things that overextend you and start making time for things that matter more, you slow life down in a wonderful way. This brings your goals into sharper focus and helps you to concentrate on what’s important.
When you regularly make time that’s focused solely on being good to yourself and meeting your own needs, you send a positive message to your subconscious. Specifically, you treat yourself like you have intrinsic value, and this can go a long way toward discouraging that critical inner voice and increasing your emotional wellbeing.
Practicing self-care requires thinking about what you really love to do. The exercise of simply focusing on what makes you feel passionate and inspired can help you to understand yourself a lot better.
More to Give
Self-care gives you the resources you need to be compassionate to others as well. Giving compassion is a bit like filling a bucket; you can’t fill someone else’s if you don’t have enough of your own!
