Excited to have another new product announcement which is the very beautiful and inspiring Self-Care Starter Kit Card Deck.
About the Self-Care Starter Kit Card Deck
The Self-Care Starter Kit Card Deck is designed to inspire your simple daily self-care routine. In speaking to thousands of people over the years I’ve learned a few things. First, it’s easy for us to get overwhelmed with terms like self-care and sometimes we end up doing nothing because we don’t know where to start. Second, we underestimate the power that simple daily steps can have. With my love of creating simple intention card decks to inspire your daily living, I wanted to de-mystify self-care and give you simple daily steps to get you on your way.
Taking Time for Yourself
Taking time for yourself is one of the best things you can do. Self-care doesn’t need to be elaborate or just for special occasions. Getting used to regularly caring for yourself in big and small ways is a habit we want to develop. If you’re ultra busy or always doing things for other people, this can feel tough. However, like the old metaphor goes, you need to take the oxygen mask first before you can help others. If time is tight for you, these simple cards will help you integrate self-care into your every day in really easy ways.
Self-Care Isn’t a Chore
Self-care isn’t a chore. In fact, creating any daily practice whether it’s intention setting, gratitude or self-care shouldn’t feel like another item on your to-do list. In fact, we’re lucky we get to do this. So, let’s infuse it with some joy and ritual and celebration. Let’s start caring for our physical, mental and emotional healthy. In other words, let’s start really nourishing ourselves and feeling good.
Self-Care Can Be Simple
As with all of the card decks I create, I want you to know that self-care can be simple. It’s the little mindful things that you do every day that make a big difference over time. You’ve got to be on your own side and make yourself the best version of you that you can imagine.
How I Started My Self-Care Practice
How I started my self-care practice was pretty desperate and rudimentary. It did not come in a cute package and maybe the same is true for you! As many of you know, I had to turn my life around when I decided to get sober (that was 10 years ago now!!). I don’t even know if self-care was a widely used term then. All I know is that I realized how much energy I’d put into my own self-destruction and I began to wonder what life would be like if I used that energy for good.
I just started by gently being kind to myself. Also, I decided to do things that felt nourishing and inspiring. Sometimes they were small like listening to a song I like but, being kind to myself felt unusual and also very good. We can take care of ourselves. In fact, I believe we have a responsibility too. That way, we can be healthy for the people around us and enjoy life. Wherever you find yourself, I hope you’ll practice small simple self-care, see how it feels, modify as you need to and begin to create a life that brings you a lot of joy.
