3 Self-Care Strategies to Transform Your Life | World of Psychology

Since I posted the other day about running being “me time”, when I read this I wanted to share.  It discusses Cheryl Richardson’s book The Art of Extreme Self-Care: Transform Your Life One Month at a Time.  It is easy in our world to see even wanting time devoted strictly to yourself as selfish, but it really is necessary.  If I don’t get my me time everyone around me is going to regret it.  My hateful side comes out really quick when I feel overwhelmed; or the fetal in a corner crying side.  It can either way.

The post outlines three ways of improving your level of self-care, & has some really good ideas for making them work.

  • Discover when, where, why, & how you feel deprived.
  • Find your own rhythm & routine.
  • Create an “absolute no list”.
