Hello ladies. I want to talk about self care. As women, we juggle many things. From being a mother to your children, to being the boss at work, we wear many hats. Juggling our many hats we forget about ourselves. With everyone needing us, how can we be there for ourselves?
NUDGE IN YOUR SPIRIT
It is so easy to neglect our needs and wants. Because at first we feel like superwoman, taking on the role of doctor, judge, counselor and teacher; making us feel like we can do anything. The sky is the limit. Suddenly we feel a nudge in our spirit. Everything that we are juggling starts to feel overwhelming. The sad part is we often don’t listen to our spiritual needs. We keep going because if we stop to take care of ourselves, we think everything around us will fall apart. But in reality the longer we neglect self, the more we start to crash and burn.

LISTEN TO YOUR SPIRIT
Start listening to your spirit. When you feel that feeling in your spirit, that you need to slow down, listen to it. Your intuition to take care of yourself is very beneficial. That is how many begin to break down emotionally and mentally. We cannot be superwoman to everyone all the time. It is okay to say that we need help. It’s okay to slow down. Some ways we can get in touch with our spiritual self is by:
- Take a day to yourself
- Take a break from social media
- Turn off your phone
- Stay silent, meditate and pray
- Lighten your load
- Accept help from others/ Ask for help
TELLING YOUR SPIRIT
Take care of yourself, mind, body and spirit. Our spirit will always find ways to get our attention. Some listen right away and some do not. Don’t wait until you are on the verge of a breakdown to take care of yourself. The best thing you can do for yourself and others is to be refreshed. Self-care is your way of telling your spirit that you will take care of yourself and love yourself. This is the most important thing in this world. Put yourself first, and in the end, others will love you for it.
Why do you personally find self-care challenging and being in tune with your spirit?
