You need to have a self-care routine. Why? Because it is important! For you, yourself should be the priority and the rest comes after this. Create a healthy relationship with yourself to develop positive vibes around you, to get positive feelings about yourself and maintain a healthy living. 

What is self-care? Do you mean just the beauty parlour services? No. It is much more than that. Your mind is at peace, you feel good about the day, you are relaxed, you are enjoying the moments, you feel loved and especially you do things that matter with your happiness. These all things come to you after you start counting on yourself in everything. If something is disturbing you, it doesn’t mean you need to get along with it. No, you just don’t need to be fake. Leave the things if they bother you, everything settles in the end.

You need self-care because you deserve it. After putting so much effort into something and you still don’t get what you deserve, simply leave it. It’s taking up too much of your mind. When you were not in the situation, things were still going then why do you think your absence will make any difference. Well, if your absence does matter somewhere, that’s into you. When something makes you happy, you don’t care about the world. People will adjust anyways.

Loving yourself is another level of joy and I believe you don’t want to miss it. Nobody is perfect in this world. Every person is born with strengths and flaws. Try to find your inner artist, the hidden strengths and make the best use of them, this is what will make you happy and tell you about who you are. Accept your flaws. If you have them so what, does it make you any less strengthful? No, a person is beautiful and flawless from the inside, the words and tone in which he speaks say a lot more than his appearance. 

Don’t miss out on the best self-care tips below. Scroll down, here’s how to do it.

Be your priority

embrace yourself

While caring for everyone, care for you too. More than others you need to be with yourself. Getting along with the routine too much and forgetting about yourself creates anxiety and depression and sometimes which cannot be even expressed to someone. If something is bothering you or you are not comfortable with your presence at someplace, you have all the right to leave that place at that very moment without any excuse and explanations. Your happiness does matter and you can only take care of it.

Be a healthy eater

Eating healthy is the key to staying happy and energetic. When your hormones will get a good diet they will boost and allow your body to feel good about yourself. For some people, their favorite food is the only thing that makes them happy. If that’s the same case with you, then add variety to your favorite food list and eat healthy and yummy. The happy hormones play a big part in curing headaches, anxiety, depression, stress and body restlessness. Although they don’t give you the cure or solution for some time your mind will be relaxed and get time to think about the solution to the problem.

Take a break when you need it

Most times, people get trapped in things that are too hectic for them and they like to continue them because somebody else is stuck there or will get into difficulty if they left. The whole day doing the house chores believing nothing will settle without you. Do you? Take a moment and think about what will happen if you won’t be there. Taking a break from house chores isn’t a bad thing, there are 5 people in the house if everyone does their room and dishes the load will be much lesser or someday you can take a day off from the kitchen. The food can be home delivered. 

Learn to say “No”

say no

Saying “no” isn’t so easy. You need courage, you need reasons, and you have to face the critics. Suppose you are accepting a proposal that doesn’t make you happy at all but your family is. You get disturbed, you know the problems you would face after marriage but still for the sake of family you have accepted it. Wouldn’t it be like, saying “no” to a proposal that is unsatisfying and difficult to agree on? Explain things to your family about why you are not accepting this proposal and why it doesn’t seem okay to you. Talk to them, good communication does a lot better.

Be you, the world will adjust

Be you

Pretending to be okay with something when you are not, is the immense damage you give to yourself. You are unfair to yourself and nothing justifies it. Let’s say you want to wear stilettos while you already have a long height around your community. You will hear jokes about you, people will ask you to stop wearing them. Remember the comments are temporary, they will say twice and thrice and then people will accept it. But the joy and happiness you feel and the confidence you get in them can never be compared with some flat shoes that you don’t like.
