3 Ways To Increase Your Self-Care Beyond Nutrition & Fitness

Practicing self-care through better nutrition & fitness is great, however, it’s not the be all and end all. To live optimally you must adopt the mindset, habits and outlook that serve your higher self. You must tune your senses into those things that develop you, that increase your level of self-care and that underline why you must be a priority in your life. Good health, after all, is all encompassing.

Here are 3 ways to check in with your current level of self-care and to make necessary changes to elevate it:

Is Self-Care Transformative?

Right out of the gate I would say yes… but then you would expect me to as a Self-care Coach!
The truth is, I embed self-care principles in all areas of my personal life and my work, whether I am leading Nordic Walking classes, Personal Training clients, Nutrition Coaching or Mindset Coaching; every single one of these avenues lead to increased self-care and that leads my clients to making healthier life decisions that transform their experience of life (over time).
And what makes my work worthwhile is when I get to share my client’s stories because it is their experience and outcomes that remind me how important this work is. So here is one such story:

Are You Sick Of Living Half A Life?

Are you sick of living half a life?

What happens on the day you wake up and decide you’re sick of living half a life? You’re fed up with constantly running out of energy and losing momentum when going for your goals and quite frankly, you’re just plain tired of feeling worn out, exhausted and dissatisfied with life (possibly because you have been nurturing everyone else’s needs over your own).

Something’s got to give!

Wake Up To The Importance Of Self-Care

Are you ready to wake up to the importance of self-care?

The time has come to stop sabotaging your wellbeing by not paying attention or giving time to self-care.

How you treat yourself shows others how to treat you… Let me repeat that ‘How you treat yourself shows others how to treat you’.

If you are failing to put yourself on your to do list, if you are wearing yourself out running around doing everything & being everything for everybody else, don’t be surprised when your health fails you and be even less surprised when the people you are running around for begin to ‘expect’ you to do all the things you do for them.

How Does Nutrition Affect Your Self-Care?

Self-care is made up of many parts, from mindset, to habit breaking, reframing, and
creating new habits, to letting go of guilt, scheduling and building in daily self-care actions. The highest levels are achieved by taking daily steps in each area, consistently over time. And because it is a lifestyle, it doesn’t have a final goal, rather a continuous review & readjustment.
