Is Self-care same as being Selfish???


Its high time we take care of ourselves and not feel guilty.

Remember the old cliché? “Take care of yourself first or you will have nothing left to give others.”  Or, “ we can’t give what we don’t have.”

The  mundane life keeps us too busy to take care of ourselves. And whenever we try to think of our own body, mind and soul we are naturally tempted to think ” Am i being selfish thinking only about myself?”  BUT it is not at all bad to make yourself a priority at times.

There are stark differences between taking care of yourself and taking from others to make yourself feel better.

Always remember “SELF CARE is not SELFISH . You cannot pour from an empty vessel.”

The best thing about self-care is that it is never done with the intention to harm others. It has far reaching benefits starting from you and everyone in your life. Treating your self once in a while will always help you be owner of your own happiness in life.

Having a “me-first, me-only” attitude stems from being solely focused on your wants and needs with absolutely no consideration for others. On the other hand, self-care involves setting boundaries so you don’t expend all of your personal energy taking care of everyone but yourself.

Self care will give you strength to help yourself and hence be available for others in your life.It will bring out the best in you and also help to boost your energy and confidence level.The positivity in your life after practising self care will be reflected wherever you go.

Here are few simple ways to nurture your wellbeing with self-care:

1)Nourish Yourself

2)Celebrate Small Changes

3)Let Go of Unwanted Things


5)Take a Personal Day

Incorporating a few of these tiny self-care ideas in your day will help keep you in tune.

Which one will you try first?
