Episode 4 of Own Your Confidence Podcast: Things To Consider When Creating Your Self Care Routines
Taking care of yourself is an important part of your confidence journey. It's a reflection of how you feel about yourself and how you treat yourself. However, sometimes you wait for the perfect self-care routine to come along before you start taking care of yourself. That's not how it works. Your self-care journey is a process, and it's important to remember that it's not about achieving perfection. In this blog post, I'll share with you some things to consider when creating your self-care routines.
Introvert vs. Extrovert
One factor to consider when creating your self-care routine is whether you're an introvert or an extrovert. It's not just about shyness or being outgoing. It's about how social situations affect your energy levels. Do you feel energized or depleted after socializing? Understanding how you recharge your energy is essential in creating a routine that works for you.
High Energy vs. Low Energy
Another factor to consider is your energy levels. Are you a high-energy person who's always on the go, or a low-energy person who could chill all day? Knowing your energy levels will help you design your self-care routine.
Resting vs. Coping with Stress
How you cope with stress and rest is different for everyone. Look into your sleep habits and what you do to cope with being on the go. Understanding these things will help you build a self-care routine that's tailored to your needs.
Morning Person vs. Night Person
Are you a morning person or a night person? It's important to know when you're most productive and when you feel the most rested. It took me years of fighting against myself before I accepted that I'm a night person. It's important to give yourself permission to accept who you are and build a routine that supports that.
The Levels of Self-Care
When designing your self-care routine, think about different levels of self. Start with your baseline level, which is the version of you as you go about your day-to-day life. Then think about a middle step that will help you start building your self-care routine. Finally, have an end goal in mind. Don't compare where you are right now to where you want to be. Instead, focus on getting there one step at a time.
Remember that self-care is a practice. It's okay if some days you don't feel like doing it. Self-care is about treating yourself with compassion, so don't beat yourself up if you don't feel like doing it. Make sure your routine is in alignment with the person you are and the person you're trying to grow into. Don't do it just because you feel like you should or because you saw someone else doing it.
Self-care is a physical form of treating yourself with compassion. It's a crucial part of our confidence journey, and it's important to design a routine that works for you. Remember that it's a process, and it doesn't have to be perfect. It's about learning to treat yourself with more compassion and love.
