Self care- “the practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.”
Self care is doing anything that honors you and your body, it’s making yourself the priority - there isn’t a list of self care items that you have to choose from - it’s something that you choose for yourself
What makes you feel good? What fuels your soul? What makes you happy? What relaxes you?
What “that” is for you - THAT is self care.
So to get a little more concrete-
What might self care look like as a UnDieter in the categories of food, mind, and body?
Yes. Self care can involve food as an UnDieter - because food is awesome, and social, and pleasurable, nutrient dense and decadent!!
Self care may be -
We can go on and on - the point is you can allow all food, you can listen to your body, you know when it’s asking for something that will feel good- be it a green smoothie or a cookie - it’s about how you feel in your body and how it makes you feel emotionally.
We suggest that you make a list of things that you consider self care so when you feel like it’s lacking in your life - or you had a stressful day - or you just feel like giving yourself some love- you have YOUR list that you created of all the things you love and choose something!
Self care may seem like a cliche or silly thing but it’s 1000% necessary and important to incorporate into your life on the daily! You will notice the difference - even if it’s taking a few deep breaths and closing your eyes - that is self care.
