In today’s busy world, where we’re all rushing from one
thing to the next and constantly making plans for the future, self-care is more
important than ever.
To avoid feeling burnt out and overwhelmed, taking time for
yourself is essential. Whatever helps you relax, be it a long bath, curling up
with a book or going on a quiet walk, be sure to prioritise that – even when
there are lots of other things you feel you have to do. Taking some time to
care for yourself will leave you refreshed and much more able to look after
those around you.
We’ve put together our favourite self-care mantras, to
inspire you to look after yourself as we head into 2020….
Be still, be present, be mindful
Designed as an aid for mindfulness, this mantra reminds you
to take a moment in your busy life. Breathe in, stay present, relax your mind,
and notice what is around you. Taking time out to simply “be” is a
fantastic way to kick start your self-care routine.
Stay true to what inspires you
This mantra celebrates inspiration – that wonderful feeling
we get when we feel happy, positive, motivated and in flow. As we start the new
decade, use this mantra to remind you to pursue your dreams and ambitions; or
to strengthen your determination to live an inspired life.
Seek the sweet moments in every day
This mantra acts as a reminder to take a moment from what you’re
preoccupied with, and look out for the beautiful things that surround you. To
be aware of the present moment, rather than being so busy with worries of the
future, or regrets about the past; and to look for the good in life, not the
bad. A wonderful mantra to encourage mindfulness as we start a new year.
Do more of what makes you happy
A simple, yet powerful mantra – “Do more of what makes you
happy” is the perfect self-care mantra for 2020. Repeat this mantra to yourself
to remind you to prioritise the things that make you happy, even when you have
a long to-do list! Time for yourself will leave you so much more relaxed and
ready to tackle that list of jobs…
