We often hear the phrase “you can’t pour from an empty cup” discussed in relation to taking care of other people, but I would like to offer a different perspective. This phrase can be used when considering your relationship with yourself. You can’t pour into different areas of your life if you’re not taking care of yourself.
In the blog post I wrote last time, which you can find HERE, I gave the ultimate guide to self-care. Towards the end, I promised that I would write a separate post focusing on self-care ideas and tips. This is that post ☺️
In the middle of taking care of ourselves mentally, it is important not to put too much pressure on ourselves and understand that it’s perfectly okay to have a bad day. Not every day will be filled with rainbows and sunshine. We’re humans, and sometimes we will feel down. Embrace all those emotions and don’t try to sweep them under the rug.
