Are you taking good care of yourself? Do you make time for yourself? Are you a priority in your own life? Do you need a self-care plan? Here is a quick and easy checklist to help you assess if you are taking time for yourself!
Welcome back, ladies!
We’ve chatted about what self-care is (read about it here if you missed it) and we also covered the 5 areas that are essential to a well-rounded self-care plan (Read more here).
And next, we need to identify your current level of self-care, so we can see how to improve in this area.
So how do you know if you really need more self-care in your life?
Well, if you are anything like me, you probably haven’t given it much thought…you are way too busy to even reflect on whether you are taking good care of yourself….(pssst…shocking reveal coming… if you are too busy to even think about it, you probably need to build in some self-care into your daily life!).
To help you out, I created this simple little checklist so you can quickly determine how you are doing…are you making YOU a priority?
If you don’t have a couple of minutes to do this now, THEN there’s a 99% chance you also don’t ever make time for your self-care so let’s begin right now by making the time.
Do yourself a favor and take a minute to honestly reflect on these questions…
Do you have hobbies you enjoy?
Do you get enough sleep, exercise, nutrition?
Do you smile and laugh often?
When you are alone, are you comfortable?
Are you extra critical of yourself?
Do you spend time outdoors in nature?
Do you overreact to the “small stuff”?
Are you surrounded by people who uplift you and bring joy into your life?
Do you have a constant feeling of guilt?
Are your consistently in a state of frenzy and stress?
Do you frequently feel agitated or depressed?
Do daily tasks make you feel overwhelmed and full of dread?
Are you satisfied with your life or always unfulfilled?
Do you make time for yourself daily?
Here’s a free, printable version, that you can download here:
Well, what’s the verdict?
How did you do?
Are you taking the necessary steps on a consistent basis to take care of yourself?
No shame or judgment, if not…for me it’s a work in progress and the first step is becoming aware of where I need some extra focus.
