Creating A Self Care Routine

Throughout my journey, I’ve learned and understood the importance of having a self care routine. This is a practice I incorporate during my days and use as a way of getting myself back into alignment. For this week, I’m going to talk about the different aspects that should make up a self care routine with the goal that you have a template so that you’re ready to make your own.

The 3 Most Important Components That Create Your Self Care Routine

When we talk about self care, we are looking at the big picture. These activities need to address the three aspects that make us whole. I will list them below.

Mind: Having a practice that soothes your mind is key when you deal with unpleasant situations that may seem chaotic. Mental health is so important and what we tell ourselves can make or break us.

Body: Our body is the vehicle that allows us to navigate this world the way that we do. It gives us energy to pursue what we love as well as provide sufficiency with our daily tasks. Just like mental health, we need physical health to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Soul: This ties in to our belief systems. This is where we dig deep into our spirituality and make the connection between our values and the actions that back them up. To me, this is the central point of the human experience and this is what integrates the previous aspects together.

My Self Care Routine

Based on the three aspects that I talked about previously, I would like to share with you, as an example, my self care routine that I’ve recently implemented. I will break them down using these three categories.
