Step 8 - De-stress and self-care - Life Purpose Guide
De-stress and self-care
Most of the things we have talked about so far could be considered de-stressors and self-care. You will find if you don't continuously look at the ways you spend your time and reset how you might be doing things, you’ll become unbalanced. Just like riding on a bicycle becomes habitual and second nature, where you don't even have to think about the balance, it just happens, you need to form this same habit with self-care in your life.
I believe that learning to set boundaries and maintain them so you can protect your energy and time is the foundation of self-care.
How do you know when you need to set a boundary? If you are feeling obligated to do something to keep the peace or to avoid conflict a boundary needs to be placed here.
If you feel like someone is walking all over you or you feel like a doormat, a boundary needs to be set.
Setting boundaries is about deciding what is acceptable to you in your life and creating and maintaining that space for yourself.
Affirmation: I pay attention to the things that help me thrive because I deserve the very best.
Tips: Do these health and wellness steps one at a time so you don't become overwhelmed.
I hope that you can slowly create a self-care practice that supports your time and energy in your life. These are your most valuable assets and you need to take care of them.
