Self-care is at the crux of all of our successes in life! We cannot and will not lead a successful, happy, and healthy life without a daily implementation of self-care! With Self-care comes a state of awareness and compassion; I refer to these concepts as self-awareness and self-compassion. This brand as a whole is to help individuals find self-love, self-compassion and self-appreciation through the practice of self-care!
Within Eating Disorder Recovery, or any recovery for that matter, self-care is one of the crucial aspects in order to truly reach a state of well being.
Self-care is an integral part of the healing process for the mind, body and soul.
When many individuals think or hear the words self care they jump to conclusions, in that they assume that it is a selfish act, that caring for one’s self is lazy and entitled…this could not be further from the truth! Self-care is incredibly misunderstood, especially when it comes to eating disorder recovery. Another assumption people jump to is that self-care is a luxury, self-care is only for people who have time and money. Yes, there are self-care luxuries, which I will speak on in this blog, but self-care is a DAILY practice that protects your emotional well-being and your mental health! Self-care allows you to give your best to others, by first taking CARE of yourself! One thing that is true is that you must MAKE TIME for self-care, instead of assuming that it TAKES-TIME.
And I will tell you, just like I was once told myself; you cannot truly function within life until you learn how to care for yourself.
