My Self-Care Practices
Updated: Jul 21, 2021
Something I get asked about all the time is my self-care and mindset practices, and I fully appreciate that everyone’s looks a little bit different and finding what works for you is important but, I thought I would share mine with you.
My practice has evolved over the years (it certainly didn't look like it does now when I started), so I’m going to walk you through the evolution of some of my practices and my daily routine.
Something else I am mindful of is that not everyone will want to do their self-care practices in the morning. Some like middle of the day at lunch. Some like night. If you aren’t sure which one you prefer - have a play with all of the options and see which one feels best for you. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to YOUR self-care practices. Because they’re yours. So whatever works for you.
So, my self-care practices can be broken into 2 categories.
The non-negotiables, how I get myself out of a rut / when I’m feeling overwhelmed and the stuff that makes me FEEL good.
My Self-care and mindset rituals.
I have 4 non-negotiables and when I haven’t been doing these, I really notice it.
Exercise. If I’m honest with you, I become a bit of a moody bitch when I don’t train for a few days. I get agitated, short, grumpy and just out of sorts. Everyone close to me knows it - and I know as soon as I do exercise, I feel a million times better.
My go to is high intensity training. Having played sports all my life (tennis, netball, basketball, athletics, gymnastics, softball - all the sports) I really enjoy working up a sweat.
