Self-care is a conscious decision to examine aspects of your life and take active steps to reset and revitalize your body, mind and spirit.

First, are you here to find workouts for the week? I’ve got you covered. Go to workouts for a selection of quick HIIT when you’re short on time, superset strength workouts, 30 minute cardioab workouts and more. Choose 2 strength workouts alternating throughout the week with cardio for total body fitness. And, not only do you have ready access to workouts, I’m changing things up a little bit with Monday fitness posts. Don’t worry. There will still be workouts, but I also have a few things planned to motivate you to move for the remainder of the year. Seriously can’t wait to share!

Wholehearted living begins the moment a woman decides to become her own best friend. 

It’s funny how life works. How the big picture of a puzzle suddenly comes together. For years, the focus of here has been Fitness, Health and Happiness. Recently, I’ve themed some of my yoga classes Yoga Body, Mind and Spirit. There’s been an unintentional theme in my life that has brought  together everything I’ve learned about fitness, health and happiness for total body balance. Taking action for things like happiness and contentment, mindfulness and believing. In the end making the time to become the best version of you will make you better at all the other things you have to do.

Eat well, exercise, live whole and feel amazing.

In that balance is self-care. More specifically, making the time to make self-care a priority. To achieve optimal health, you must treat the body, mind and spirit equally. You can eat a healthy diet, but if you’re in a constant state of stress, you’ll feel it in your body. You can workout 4 or 5 times a week, but if you eat a diet of junk food you’re not going to perform at and feel your best.

  1. I fell in love with taking care of myself a long time ago. Not even my child comes before me

  2. I have been taking much better care of myself in the last year or so and it really shows. I’ve lost weight, my skin is better and I feel much better. I wish i had done this years ago!

  3. this was a great reminder — especially bc i’m in the midst of a wedding, working full time and buying a house! i’m so overwhelmed and stressed!

  4. This was so inspiring! We often forget how important it is to take care of ourselves and loving who we are. This was a really great reminder that I NEEDED today. Thank you.

  5. I think self-care is so incredibly important! I think it’s so silly that people feel that taking care of yourself is selfish. Self care is essential. I’ve always said that if you don’t take care of yourself, then you can’t take of others!

  6. Omg love this!!! I swear girls for some reason have a hard time accepting the fact that self care is something you need. I know for the longest time I felt guilty about it. Now that I do take care of myself, everyone is happy! Self care is a must!

  7. I always try and get a workout in to take care of my body, but if I can’t make it to the gym then I at least try to get some me time in before the day is done!

  8. This is a good reminder since it can we all can easily get caught in the hustle and bustle of life while putting self-care on the back burner. This is I always try to make some time to take care of myself.

  9. Being your own best friend nails it! When we’re consumed by taking care of others and being in that support role, our own health needs often falls by the wayside.

  10. I should really heed your advise here. I just don’t take that good care of myself. If I did I would most certainly feel better.

  11. I certainly try to make time for self care. Exercise is important to me and so it taking time to relax. You really do have to make time though.

  12. It’s really, really hard as a mom to make ourselves a priority! I am training for a 10K and just getting in those runs is so very difficult. And I HAVE to!

  13. I spend a lot of time taking care of other people and their kids. This summer I took some extra time off for myself and to spend time with my family. That’s what I needed. I’m still super stressed but I’m thinking it’s less than it could have been! Ah life….

  14. The best project you will ever work on is YOU! We love your outlook on taking care of yourself. Spread the good word, SISTA!

  15. Taking care of ourselves is one of those fundamental things we, as women, often forget to pay attention to. Once I gave myself permission to take care of myself, I didn’t feel guilty anymore about doing it.

  16. I used to be great about taking care of my body – all of it. When I was pregnant I was so vigilant about what I did, ate and drank. All through eight years of nursing babies as well. But now, as I near 50, I am literally at my least healthy. It’s getting bad! ☺

  17. Self-care is so important! It is amazing to me how easy it is to push your own well-being to the side. This is something I have been working on.

  18. This is so important and not something I do very well. Thank you for the reminder!

  19. I have been making huge strides towards making the time to take care of myself first.
    When I am taken care of it is so much easier to take care of those around me.
    30 min isn’t that much when you figure that everything we do today helps us down the road be here longer for our family!

  20. I am really in a phase where I am trying to move towards self care. When you have very young children it can be so hard but it is more important than ever!

  21. I realized several years ago how important self care was in my life. I try to make an effort to do things for my mind, body and soul. Whether it’s finding a workout program that makes me feel strong or giving myself and at home mani, self-care is my weekly necessity.

  22. Heather McMechan says:

    Now that the kids are back in school, I’m focusing on making sure I have time for myself as well.

  23. I definitely need to take out more time for myself so that I don’t feel so exhausted and drained all the time. Well said x

  24. When you’re a mom, taking care of yourself becomes your last priority. I think it’s great that other moms are empowering women to learn how to take care of themselves. It’s one of the best things that you can do for you and your family. If you’re healthy and happy, you have so much more to give to your kids.

  25. I am terrible at self care. I really need to learn to put myself higher than the bottom of the list.

  26. Ever since I began taking care of myself, my overall health has been drastically improved. Eating to nourish, exercising to maintain fitness, getting regular massages for muscular well-being, and enjoying a proper night alone for being in my own head 🙂

  27. I look forward to your self-care posts. I try to make time for myself, but it doesn’t always happen. I need more relaxing activities in my life!

  28. It is not only so very important to care for yourself but as moms it’s even more important to have our children see that it’s important for them. They learn so much from observing our behavior and self care should never be looked at as selfish and always encouraged for all.

  29. I love the title of the post! That graphic should be a poster in my bathroom! I love the message!

  30. Love this! Self care is so important! Although, I must confess, I could do a lot better! 😉 (The exercise part is easy, its the rest that tends to get overlooked for me).

  31. I do try to make self care a priority because I know how important it is. I get to the gym pretty regularly and eat well for the most part – but sleep tends to fall by the wayside because my toddler doesn’t sleep through the night yet. I look forward to when that part of my self care is in place! 🙂

  32. I love this, because I am such a believer in promoting health as in a healthy mind body and soul. NOT weight focused like seems to be the hangup of many girls today. Thanks for sharing!

  33. So fortuitous that I came across your write up! Lately I’ve been reading about self love and the importance of that in our life! Recognizing the true meaning of dedicating some “me” time is not only healthy but also refreshing ! Beautifully said ..

  34. I agree self care is so important. For me, that meant leaving the blog world for a bit while I dealt with my anxiety and Merlin’s surgery, and I’m so glad I did because I’m feeling far better now.

  35. I agree! Self-care is SO important! So many people think they are being selfish when partaking in self-care, but that is so not the case! To be the best version of ourselves to others we need to be healthy, mind, body, spirit and all!

  36. Robin Rue says:

    The way I take care of me is seriously just getting outside. The sunshine makes me feel so great!

  37. Reesa Lewandowski says:

    Self care is so important. When you feel great your whole day just goes better in general.

  38. My self-care is hit or miss. I try to be more mindful about it all, but some days its a hot mess. I definitely always think about it and making smart choices to keep me feeling my best – but you know how that goes sometimes! 😉

  39. Kimberly at www.fitdisneymom.com says:

    I love your quote about a woman being her own best friend! That is absolutely true!

  40. The upcoming self care series sounds great. It is so important to focus on the WHOLE you and just not the physical part. Great post.

  41. yes!! me time often gets overlooked but its sooo important to overall wellbeing.

  42. When I first started doing yoga about a year ago is when I really started to learn what it meant to take care of myself. I was able to change the way I look at health and fitness and focus on what makes me feel my best from the inside out. Great post!

  43. i have been making more time this past week for self-care (to try and help with my sleeping issues). i have included some pool time and a pedicure. self-care is so important.
