It is an act of self-love, self-compassion, and self-respect. If practiced regularly, self-care can help us in managing stress and anxiety, improving our mental and physical health, and increasing our overall wellbeing. 

It can help us feel as though we are living in our purpose, appreciated, and well cared for.

It can prevent feelings of resentment towards others we might care for and strengthen our relationships. 

Self-care is an empowering act that can serve us throughout life…and this is why we’re coining the term Self-Carist™ and Self-Carism™.

Because it’s time to embrace our role as Self-Carists, practicing Self-Carism every day!

What is Self-Care?

Self-care is an act of taking time for ourselves and our own needs. It is about making time for yourself and engaging in activities that nourish your body, mind, and spirit. 

It is a way of taking care of your physical, mental, and emotional health, and it can be as simple as taking a break from your daily routine to do something you enjoy. Self-care is not just about pampering yourself with expensive spa treatments or luxurious vacations. It is about taking small steps towards taking care of yourself, such as exercising, eating healthy, and getting enough sleep.

Self-care is also about being mindful of your feelings and needs, and taking time to address them. It is about creating healthy boundaries and setting limits on how much time you spend on activities that do not help in improving your wellbeing.

Self-care is about taking responsibility for yourself and your own happiness, and not relying on someone else to do it for you.

Why is self-care important?

Self-care is important because it helps us in managing our stress, improving our mental and physical health, and increasing our overall wellbeing.

In our fast-paced world, it is easy to become overwhelmed with our everyday tasks and responsibilities.

Taking time for ourselves helps us in dealing with the stress and anxiety that come with our day-to-day lives.

Self-care also helps us in improving our physical health by allowing us to take the time to engage in activities that nourish our bodies.

Self-care is also important because it helps us in taking care of our mental health. Engaging in self-care activities allows us to take a break from our stressful lives and spend time focusing on ourselves and our own needs. 

Taking care of our mental health means recognizing our feelings and needs, and taking the time to address them.

Self-care also helps us in developing healthy coping mechanisms, such as meditation and journaling, which can be used to manage stress and anxiety.

Self-care is also important because it helps us in developing self-awareness and self-compassion. Taking time for ourselves allows us to become more aware of our feelings and needs, and to become more compassionate towards ourselves and others. 

Self-care helps us in understanding our own needs and feelings, and in learning how to express them in healthy ways.

It also helps us in developing healthy boundaries and setting limits on how much time we spend on activities that do not help in improving our wellbeing.

Benefits of Self-Care

The benefits of self-care are numerous. Self-care helps us in managing stress, improving our mental and physical health, and increasing our overall wellbeing. It helps us in developing self-awareness and self-compassion, and in understanding our own needs and feelings. 

Self-care also helps us in developing healthy coping mechanisms and setting healthy boundaries.

Self-care also helps us in improving our productivity and performance. When we are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, it is hard to focus and be productive. 

Taking time for ourselves helps us in recharging and refocusing, which can help in improving our productivity and performance. Self-care also helps us in cultivating a positive mindset, which can be beneficial in all aspects of our lives.

Finally, self-care helps us in improving our relationships. Taking time for ourselves allows us to take a break from our stressful lives and spend time focusing on ourselves and our own needs.

This can help us in creating healthier relationships with others, as we are able to better understand and respond to their needs when our own needs have already been met.

How to Make Self-Care a Priority

Making self-care a priority can be difficult, especially when we are feeling overwhelmed and stressed out by an already over-extended schedule. 

Here are some tips for how to make self-care a priority:

🪄Make a self-care plan: Make a plan for how you will practice self-care on a regular basis. This could involve setting aside time each day to engage in self-care activities, or creating a list of activities that you can do when you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed out. As mentioned above, a great way is to enhance your already everyday activities such as your bathing routine with essential oils and positive affirmations sprinkled throughout. Try one of Nefertem’s Intention Kits to make this practice super easy and so much fun!

🪄Ask for help: Ask for help if you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed out. This could involve talking to a friend or family member, or seeking professional help if necessary.

🪄Say no: Learn to say no to activities or tasks that do not help in improving your wellbeing.

Self-Care Activities

There are many different self-care activities that can help in managing stress, improving our mental and physical health, and increasing our overall wellbeing. 

Here are some self-care activities that can be done on a regular basis

✨Exercise: Exercise can help in managing stress, improving our physical health, and increasing our overall wellbeing.

✨Eat healthy: Eating healthy can help in improving our physical and mental health. Try to eat foods in a variety of colors from the rainbow: oranges, red berries, green leafy vegetables, blueberries, yellow squash, etc… Eating a rainbow of colors can have the added benefit of strengthening your chakras. 

✨Get enough sleep: Getting enough sleep can help in managing stress and improving our mental and physical health. Try to get at least 8 hours every night. Start by going to bed just 10 minutes earlier this week, then 20 minutes earlier next week, until you get as much sleep in one night that helps you feel fully refreshed in the morning.

✨Enhance your bathing routine: Incorporate positive affirmations, mindfulness, and aromatherapy into your shower or bath. Incorporate Nefertem’s holistic skincare products to maximize your efforts.

✨Take a break from technology: Taking a break from technology can help in reducing stress and improving our mental health. Set a time limit per day. If you’re used to being on your phone 3 hours per day, start to decrease that number by 30 minutes every week, until you get down to 1 hour or less. This practice also helps you to create more time in your schedule for the other self-care activities.

✨Spend time with friends and family: Spending time with friends and family can help in improving our mental health and increasing our overall wellbeing. Invite everyone over for a family dinner, make plans to go to the movies with your friends, and host a party from time to time if that feels right for you.

✨Engage in creative activities: Engaging in creative activities, such as painting, drawing, and writing, can help in managing stress and improving our mental health.

✨Practice mindfulness: Practicing mindfulness can help in managing stress and improving our mental and physical health. Again, try to be fully aware during your shower to bring mindfulness into your everyday activities. 

✨Take a break: Taking a break from our daily routine can help in reducing stress and improving our overall wellbeing. Choose one day per week that you block off exclusively for self care activities. This can even look like organizing a closet in your home, paying bills without being strapped for time, or washing all your laundry.

🪄Start small: Start small and build up to more regular self-care activities.

🪄Be consistent: Be consistent and make self-care a regular part of your routine.
