7 Self-Nurturing Tips

Are you struggling with your daily commitments?

Wondering how you can relax and make space for what matters?

Perhaps the following self-nurturing tips will help...

1) Start your day gently with a relaxing, mood enhancing routine. Play feel-good music, eat a healthy breakfast, and take a refreshing shower. If you share your home with family or friends, get up earlier than everyone else to savour this quiet time. This positive start will set the tone of your day.

2) Your thoughts and beliefs create your reality. Practice uplifting and positive daily affirmations that will boost your self-esteem.

3) Do at least one thing every day that you truly love. Look forward to this time as an opportunity to expand and enjoy the bliss of being in the moment.

4) Let go of any situations or tensions that are stealing your joy. Heal non-nuturing habits.

5) Feed body, mind, and soul by eating a healthy and varied diet. Make meal times a joyful, slow, and relaxing experience.

6) Dance, laugh, and walk often. Choose to be somewhere beautiful and inspiring. Make time for time out!

7) End your day with gratitude for all the good things you have experienced. Be thankful for everything that has inspired or nurtured you - even the smallest enrichment. By practicing gratitude as your pre-sleep ritual, you focus on the positive aspects of life's journey - the stuff that really matters!

And, remember... self-nuturing isn't a selfish activity. When you focus on living more joyfully, your well-being improves. That means there is more of the 'positive you' to offer to the world.

Go on... make time for yourself every day.
