Choose Yourself For Happiness - Self-Care 101

Motivation doesn’t last. Neither do showers. That’s why they’re recommended daily.
— Zig Ziglar

Boom! How about that for a quote. What does this have to do with embodied badassery I can hear you asking.

It’s quite simple. To feel badass we have to take care of ourselves - EVERYDAY. I mean really look after every fiber of being.

By deeply caring for ourselves we boost our inner resources. So when sh*tty things happen we can call on our nest egg of badassery to aid us.

Self care is as easy as pie once you get into a rhythm with it. It doesn’t have to be complicated. You can build lots of little things in through the day that keep refilling your cup.

Personally, I meditate for at least 15 minutes each morning, I choose to fuel myself with healthy foods, I exercise or do movement of some variety, I have a long hot shower and I make myself a hot water bottle for bedtime.

Nothing really complex, but these things each day give me my super powers. There are times when I do other things for self care, but these are my daily habits

I would love to know what your daily self care practices are.

For now, I’m going to leave you with this little nugget by James Altucher:

“Success in today’s world ONLY happens when you choose yourself. Choose yourself for happiness. Choose yourself for freedom.

Because if you don’t choose yourself, someone else will, and the result won’t be pleasant.”
