Every girl is someone daughter, the sister, the girlfriend, the friend, the career woman, the wife, the mother and amongst the many hats that they wear what they often forget to tell yourself is that YOU are YOU first. To give and to nurture is a part of a woman’s ‘being’ and so is to love. However, what we often tend to ignore is that love starts with self.
Here are a few simple ways for which every women should never forget to nurture your own joyous self!
- It may sound silly but it works
Spend a min in front of the mirror every day and tell yourself – “I love myself, I accept myself” and “I love whatever I am right now”.
- Express, Learn to express your needs
Suppressing your needs will only make you an unhappy soul with herself to fulfill her duties towards others. If you need something that is essential for your survival or your happiness, say it and find ways to work around it so that you can treat yourself to joys that you deserve the most.
- Never be callous about your mind or your body.
Always learn to appreciate your own body, respect it enough to ensure you find time to exercise, detox, be in nature, go for some fun escapes, do yoga or any form of meditation. Feel alive and in touch with the nature and friends, it will help boost your life force energy. Remember You are ‘the’ woman, you have the ability to create and pro – create and hence it is important for you to keep body and soul happy.
- Stop being judgmental about your own self.
Give yourself some breathing space – you may not be perfect, and you must know no one else is! Accept your flaws, mark the areas of improvement and work on it without having to crib, sulk or criticize yourself for it.
- Beware of Exhaustion
Caught up in the daily chores of life, women usually let exhaustion build up to an extent that it starts to take a toll on the mental and physical wellbeing. Don’t ruin yourself trying to be a superwoman always you are human. It is okay for the superwoman to want to rest and relax. Get ample sleep and try to find ways to make it a relaxing sleep.
- Spend some time in peace
Most of us have more than enough on our plate, it is usually enough for anyone to go bonkers and therefore it is important to spend quiet time. Quiet time doesn’t mean absolute silence but it is just about that time wherein you do things that bring you inner peace. Always try to take 15 – 20 minutes’ break in a day to read, listen to music, or whatever that it takes for you to tune out of the regular rut.
- Do ensure that you don’t confine yourself to the same routine, same people and same schedules.
Find ways to break the monotony – go to new places, explore, meet new people, find something new or something different. It helps to keep the zing alive!
