The Importance of Self Care

Awhile back, I wrote a blog post on “Me Time” and the importance of taking time for ourselves. More recently, I have realized that a lot of us are ashamed to let other people that we are taking time for ourselves. It’s like we feel we have to continue to work, work, work and give, give give. So what happens when we burn out and are no longer able to give of ourselves? (Read more on burnout here.)

I have been very intrigued by positive psychology and am so happy that it is part of my coach training. I have been connecting the dots between positive psychology and self-care. According to Psychology Today (What is Positive Psychology, and What is it Not?): “Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living. It is a call for psychological science and practice to be as concerned with strength as with weakness; as interested in building the best things in life as in repairing the worst; and as concerned with making the lives of normal people fulfilling as with healing pathology.”

I was introduced to the book <a target=”_blank” href=”″>The How of Happiness: A New Approach to Getting the Life You Want</a><img src=”//″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” /> by Sonja Lyubomirsky and was pleasantly suprised that up to 40% of happiness is within our power to change. FORTY PERCENT!

I am always trying to do something for myself every day that makes me happy. Sometimes it’s a bath and meditation at night, yoga, reading a book, taking a walk, eating lunch with my husband or a friend, etc. Everyone is different so the first step is understanding what makes you happy.

I have coached a couple people on spending “me time” and having friends that seem embarrassed to tell us that they are doing something for themselves and with these interactions, felt the need to spread the word and see who I can all help create a habit of self-care.

I have put together a 30 Day Self-Care Group Coaching Pilot Program. In this program, there are: 30-days of a Support Group
2 group coaching sessions via Zoom (recorded and posted in the group)
Daily Journal Prompts
Weekly FB Lives
And new friendships

The first program starts Sunday, May 6th.
