Self – Care. How to put yourself first by being a caregiver to your body is never a natural step to take. Why is it so hard to say no to other people when you know you have to take care of yourself. Many times we aren’t thinking of ourselves, self-care, our health and how we feel on the back burner like we don’t matter.
Self – Care – So you don’t know where to start here is a list to help you out, so you can put yourself first.
You know all the famous saying ‘put the oxygen mask on before your kids.’ It makes sense you need to make sure you are okay before you can help someone else.
Don’t be in denial, sure your a caregiver but don’t make excuses that you care for others, and you don’t have time for yourself. You don’t have time to eat right, exercise, or find something you love doing. What happens when your health starts going downhill? Someone else will take your place to care for your loved one or someone you care for.
So please take care of yourself your life is so valuable and worth it, and you will feel so much better.
If ‘putting yourself first sounds too selfish or too hard, try something simpler: put yourself on an equal footing with those you love and care for.

It’s not selfish to take care of you, your friends and loved ones need all of you. Not just a part of you that is stressed & tired. You want the ones you care for to be happy and healthy so should you. Self – Care is for your heart, soul, and wellbeing. Just remember you are the caregiver of your own body.
When you put yourself first, some people might not be happy about it. It’s not about them it’s about taking care of you and being happy and healthy. Only you can help you. You can’t be expected to please everybody except for yourself.
