We live in a hectic world. It seems everyone is juggling family, work, school, and any number of other things. It’s hard to find time to catch your breath amid all the hustle and bustle. If your life is a series of running from one task to the next, then it’s time you stopped and practiced a little self-care.

Unfortunately, that is the one thing that most people find extremely difficult to do.

Self-care is so important and one of the most underdeveloped, neglected habits and that can lead to burnout, depression, anxiety, and stress related conditions. Whether you are a student, parent, caregiver, or professional, you need to take time out of each day to be good to yourself.

The main reason that self-care is so difficult to work into our schedule is time. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to take care of your to do list, much less take care of yourself. By the time you fall into bed at night, doing something good for yourself, besides falling asleep, is out of the question. Chances are, even your sleep is cut short.

QUICK TIP: There are different categories of self-care. We know of emotional, physical, spiritual, social, intellectual and sensory.

While lack of time is certainly a significant factor, there’s another, deeper issue here – guilt. Many people feel that taking some time for themselves is indulgent, even selfish. This is a skewed way of thinking, but all too common. Most people do not want to be self-centered, selfish, or even narcissistic or appear that way to others so they go to great lengths to avoid that perception.

The problem with that is, they eventually burn out.

Know this. If you don’t take care of yourself, you will not be any good for anyone or anything else in your life. There is absolutely nothing wrong with self-love and carving out some time for yourself is healthy and necessary.

Personal growth goes hand-in-hand with self-care. You might have come across the term personal growth and wondered what it means. Personal growth is also called self-improvement and self-growth.

Personal growth can be:

• learning to control anger,

• becoming a more responsible person,

• learning to overcome procrastination,

• learning new things and developing new skills,

• learning to overcome laziness,

• educating yourself further by formal or non-formal education,

• learning to be more polite and considerate,

• changing your mindset and becoming more positive.

QUICK TIP: Habits that change your life dramatically are waking up early, eating healthy, have a quiet space to relax, keep a journal, take care of your body and hygiene, exercise regularly, practice meditation, spend time with the people you love, get enough sleep and, most importantly and most difficult to do, love yourself.

Successful personal growth requires motivation, the desire to improve, and the willingness to strive to make changes. You also need to be willing to get out of your comfort zone, and sometimes, do things that are uncomfortable, but are for your own good. An open mind and the desire to learn and grow are also important.
