International Self Care Day July 24

Did you know there was such a thing as an International Self-Care Day?

Me neither until this past week and I’m all giddy about it!

Back in June, I posted an image series on Instagram called the 30 Days of Self-Care, to help raise people’s consciousness of simple ways to include more self-care strategies into their lives.

People were picking up what I was putting down. ūüėČ

But the question is, why don’t people DO self-care more often???

International Self Care Day

International Self-Care Day July 24In my book, Self-Care Day is EVERYDAY! Internationally, it’s July 24 every year. It’s a day to¬†progress the cause of healthy lifestyles and wellness and I’m all for that!

Self-Care is what people do for themselves to establish and maintain health, and to prevent and deal with illness. It is a broad concept encompassing hygiene (general and personal), nutrition (type and quality of food eaten), lifestyle (sporting activities, leisure etc), environmental factors (living conditions, social habits, etc.) socio-economic factors (income level, cultural beliefs, etc.) and self-medication,” according to WHO (1998).

We each¬†have a journey through life and it’s the quality of our lives that matter. So many people take care of others before they¬†do ourselves and it’s unhealthy.

We have a responsibility to do what we need to do to manage and lead a life we can be proud of  Рone without all the stress, pain, and diseases that run ever so rampant in the world and doing for ourselves first is the key.

In case you missed the series I posted, here is a collage of the strategies I shared by week. Dive in and start practicing any and all of these!

Talk to me…

Self-Care is the one thing we all have in common that will help us create a more desirable lifestyle. It’s the responsible decisions we¬†make every day in this area that can help prevent diseases, allow us to be more compassionate towards others, improve our general well-being and lead a happier existence.

Join me in celebrating International Self-Care Day and share what your self-care strategies are!

 

By the way, take this little quiz I concocted to help you see where the gaps are in your self-care routine!

Does your self-care routine suck? quiz

 

Wassuper, it’s yo girl, Kesha and I believe we should Be the Fruit Loop in a world full of Cheerios because life is more interesting when you dare to be different and challenge what’s “normal!” I am wildly passionate about helping highly driven women pursue fantabulous relationships, juicytastic careers/bizzes, and authentically inspired lives.

    I love this! Everyday should be self care day. I’m guilty of not doing it so maybe a challenge like this is just what I need to get into the habit of taking care of myself.

    Passing this along Chica! Have a great day and weekend!
