Quick and easy self-care to show yourself daily love

It can be hard to spend time and energy on yourself, especially as a woman in this modern age.  We are usually so focused on family, work, friends, home and finances that we can easily loose sight of ourselves and our health.  But as you know, if you don't have your health, your life comes to a grinding halt. 

When people think about self-care, they often think "oh I know I should, but I just don't have the time".  I get it, we are busy, but we should never be so busy that we forget to love ourselves in the process.

Showing love and care for ourselves does not have to be time consuming, especially if it is just woven into our day as a natural part of life; living the "Self-care Lifestyle" becomes a natural extension of our daily activities.

If you've been struggling with how to care for yourself amidst your busy schedule, breast cancer diagnosis or treatment, throughout adversity and challenge, here is one simple thing you can weave into your day. Do as many times as you think of it.

 

Self-love Affirmation 

Duration: 10 seconds

Physical Action: Place your hands on your body

Affirmation: Say "I love you" to yourself.  

Thoughts and considerations: Take a moment after the affirmation to really feel and absorb the energy and intention you are sending to yourself.  Saying it blindly without thought or care will not have the same effect as if you are mindful and genuine. 

Repeat as many times a day as you like.  Do it daily for a month and see how differently you feel about yourself!
