There is a lot of talk about self-care at the moment, and it certainly seems to be a buzz word for 2020, but it’s important to give the term the respect that it deserves. Whatever we’re calling it, self-care, self love, or simply being kind to yourself, it really could be the smallest change to your life that has the BIGGEST impact.
Caring for yourself should be at the heart of everything we do, because let’s face it, if we’re not taking care of ourselves, we can’t really be effectively caring for anyone or anything else. It’s simply not sustainable. It can be the hardest thing for so many people, but we really believe it’s the best place to start on a journey to a happier you. Give yourself the gift of 10 minutes meditation, a long bath, a home cooked meal or even a simple, slow breath in and out again. Start small and manageable, and work your way up to something truly wonderful.
