“A four part event, promoting self care, for the mind, body and soul.”
Ladies, grab your friends and join myself and the other presenters for 4 fantastic evenings out. There will be drinks, munchies, fantastic company and amazing information shared about how you can begin implementing practices of self care immediately.
What is Self Care? Self care is care provided “for you, by you.” It’s identifying your own needs and taking steps to meet them. It’s taking the time to do activities that nurture you. Self care is about taking proper care of yourself and treating yourself with the same kindness and respect that you treat others with.
Just like on an air plane, you are first directed to place your own oxygen mask on before placing one on others .Only when we first care for ourselves can we effectively care for others. Caring for yourself is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. It is also one of the easiest things to forget. But you benefit greatly from self care and so do others in your life.
Why is Self Care Important for Women? Women spend much of their lives nurturing others. When we find ourselves focusing more on others than ourselves, we become worn out, stressed out and run down. For those of us who spend time helping and caring for others, it is too easy to neglect our own needs. It’s like “running on empty” when we don’t take the time to re-fuel. We spend so much time and effort caring for our partners, children, pets, friends, family members, employers and employees. Add to that the numerous volunteer activities, errands, housework, family functions, meetings, etc.—and there isn’t much time left for caring for ourselves. Women need to balance the stress and activity of daily life with activities that bring a sense of peace and well being to their minds, bodies and souls. Women who neglect their own needs and forget to nurture themselves often become unhappy, have low self-esteem and feel resentment. Self care means treating yourself as a worthwhile person and showing that you are valuable and deserving.
The goal of this four part event is to help provide women with some tangible strategies and support to begin implementing self care practices into their own lives.
