3 Amazing Benefits of a Self-Care Checklist

Feb 18th 2020 at 9:22 AM

We treat self-care as though it's optional. We'll fit it in when we have time.

As a mom, I've realized that without intentionally putting myself first, my emotional well-being suffers dramatically, thereby hurting the rest of my family. It's important to take regular breaks from the slog that can be life.

Of course, my self-care is a work in progress, but it's managed beautifully with a self-care checklist. A list that shows all of the things FOR ME that I need to get done today. This list assures that it doesn't matter what time of day you do it. What's important is that it gets done!

So throw out your traditional to-do list and focus on this sefl-care checklist instead! You'll be so glad you did! Here are the three BEST benefits from this wellness protocol.

1. Feeling Centered

First and foremost, self-care should help you re-connect with yourself. Relax, unwind, and slow down to smell the roses. Whether through journaling, meditation, prayer, or just silence, feeling centered is the foundation of any good self-care checklist. Make sure solitude activities are on your list!

2. Health and Vitality

Part of taking excellent care of yourself includes your health. My checklist includes making a smoothie or salad, taking my vitamins, and getting some movement into my day. If it's on the list, there's no excuses to improve my overall health and energy.

3. Growth

The student who learns the most, wins. Part of taking care of myself is learning how to become a better person or professional. Taking the time to listen to podcasts, audiobooks, or reading informational articles is a huge benefit to my checklist. It automatically increases my knowledge and impact on the outside world.
