Self-Care is actually about working harder

Updated: Jan 7

Self-care is often associated with indulgent activities like bubble baths and massages, but true self-care goes much deeper than that. In fact, true self-care is actually about working harder in all areas of our life. It's about taking responsibility for our own well-being and actively working to create a life that aligns with our values and aspirations. This requires doing the necessary inner work and striving to be our best selves, even when it's hard.


At its core, self-care is about taking care of our physical, mental, and emotional health. This means prioritising regular exercise, eating well, getting enough sleep, and managing stress. But it also means being honest with ourselves about our thoughts and feelings, and taking steps to address any issues that arise. This might involve therapy, keeping a journal, meditating, or simply taking time to reflect and process our experiences.


In addition to caring for ourselves, true self-care also involves being intentional about how we live our lives. This means setting goals that are aligned with our values and working hard to achieve them. It means saying no to things that don't serve us, even if it's difficult. It means taking responsibility for our own happiness and actively seeking out experiences that bring us joy and fulfilment.


Of course, none of this is always easy. It requires hard work, discipline, and a willingness to be uncomfortable at times. But the payoff is immense: a life that feels authentic and fulfilling, with a sense of purpose and direction.


Ultimately true self-care is about recognising that we are the architects of our own lives. It's about taking control of our well-being and actively working to create a life that aligns with our deepest desires and aspirations. By doing the necessary inner work and striving to be our best selves, we can create a life that is truly worth living.
