Self Care Myths... #BUSTED!

You Can't Pour From An Empty Cup...

Even in today's society, self-care is largely misunderstood.

Its narrow and inaccurate perception explains why many of us — women in particular — feel guilty about attending to our needs. And it explains why many of us stumble around drained and depleted!

Self-care is an important part of living a healthy and happy lifestyle. Looking after yourself both mentally and physically is crucial to taking control of your health.

To help you better understand what self-care is and isn’t, we’ve laid out some popular myths and facts:

Self-Care is only for people with poor mental health...

Self-care is for everyone. In fact, you’re already doing it!

Even the most basic functions of life count as self-care. If you’ve gone to bed early to get a good night’s sleep, that’s self-care.

Self-Care can help reduce stress and anxiety...

Making time for relaxing activities, such as taking a warm bath, listening to music, or doing yoga or meditation, is another common practice of self-care.

Self-Care is all about pampering yourself...

Self-care is simply the act of caring for yourself. Sometimes that looks like sipping tea with a face mask on, but it can also include creating boundaries and learning to say 'no'.

Self-Care improves your overall health...

Taking care of yourself by doing things you enjoy, helps you remain physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy for the rest of your life.

Self-Care is indulgent and selfish....

You need to care for yourself to be able to care for others. It’s not selfish to fulfill your needs. Blocking off time in your calendar for “me time” is essential to avoid burnout.

Self-Care can boost your self-esteem...

As well as helping to calm your nerves, taking time to relax and look after yourself can have a positive impact on the way you see yourself: treating yourself with kindness can make you look upon yourself more kindly.

It’s never too late for a lane change. Insite Mind is the brainchild of one woman who after a decade spinning in the hamster wheel of the accounting world gave it up to live out her heart work. But it didn’t come without challenge and a little nudge from the universe in the form of a book Dealing with Difficult People. Upon opening it Alisa was surprised to find in black and white text “maybe it’s you”. So after several ego deaths and many personal development books along the way Alisa Pettit found her way to coaching. Now a fully fledged positive mindset coach and personal mastery guru Ali’s work helps people find their way through mindset teachings.
