Do you allow time for self care?
Maybe you feel you don’t have the time to spend on yourself… after all, you’ve got so much to do. It is quite common not to fit time for self care into our busy schedules.
Relax in the moment
Let your awareness go back to that time when you were calm and focused.
Yes, you remember… you were totally centred on what you were doing. And you were able to achieve so much so quickly. Why? Because you were relaxed in the moment, without a thought for all those things which normally stress you out.
You are important too
Maybe it feels like an indulgence you can’t justify. After all, there are people depending upon you, and perhaps you feel you should prioritise your time for them.
Let me ask you a question: have you ever been on an aeroplane?
Did you notice the instructions about what to do if the cabin loses pressure? The oxygen masks drop down from the ceiling, and you are told to put your mask on before helping others with theirs. The instructions usually show a mother putting hers on before helping her young child. If you try to put the child’s on first, and you pass out, then you’re both helpless.
You need to look after yourself first. Because if you don’t help yourself first, you will not be able to help others.
Self care can be preventative
Maybe you just don’t consider you need looking after. The fact is, you don’t have to feel stressed or unwell to benefit from preventative self-care. Think of it as an investment in your body and peace of mind. Much like how your car needs an MOT and a service regularly, it is worth investing in the upkeep of your body.
Floating is self care and fun!
Floating provides many benefits to your general health. From reducing blood pressure and improving circulation, to helping you tackle stress and anxiety. Besides which, floating is fun! We all need some of that on a regular basis.
We can all benefit from taking time out from our busy schedules, to relax and regain perspective. So go on, give yourself a break!
