Self-Care: 15 Ways To Take Better Care of Yourself

Self-Care is Vital

Self-care is more than “treating yourself.” It is showing yourself some love and recognizing that you need to take care of YOURSELF. According to Life Hacker, Self-care helps prevent burnout, reduces negative psychological and physical effects of stress and helps you refocus on what is true and important.

Are you feeling overwhelmed at work or stressed about the overdue tasks piling up at home? Well, that may be a sign that it is time for you to indulge in a big dose of self-care. Self-care is not a buzzword or a movement, it is vital to your mental and physical well-being.

Definition of Self-Care

Self-care is defined as,” the practice of taking action to preserve one’s own health or the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.” (Source: Dictionary.com)

BENEFITS of practicing self-care

  • Reduces negative effects of stress
  • Better productivity
  • Enhances self-esteem
  • Better physical health
  • Improves quality of life
  • Improves resistance to disease
  • Helps you refocus

While there are many benefits to self-care, it is one of the first things to be overlooked or “put on the back-burner” when life becomes busy. There is a long comprehensive list of self-care ideas, but many of those ideas are tips that only take a few minutes.

SELF-CARE IDEAS

Here are just a few self-care ideas for you to incorporate into your busy life:

  1. Spend time outdoors
  2. Do mindfulness breathing exercises
  3. Listen to music that makes you smile
  4. Do journal writing or make a gratitude list
  5. Sip on hot herbal tea
  6. Watch funny animal videos
  7. Disconnect from social media for the day
  8. Do a crossword puzzle or mindless coloring
  9. Read the bible or positive affirmations
  10. Take a hot bubble bath

There may not be a lot of time, but MAKE TIME. It doesn’t have to cost money to take a few moments out to show yourself some love or to give yourself a mental health break. The goal is to exercise self-care before you reach the level of BURNOUT, if possible.

It is so important to maintain a healthy relationship with yourself. There are times when we are so busy caring for the needs of others, that we find ourselves depleted. The fact is, if you gives others EVERYTHING you have, and then you have nothing left to give yourself or anyone else. Be kind to yourself.

TAKE ACTION

Don’t wait until the perfect time on the perfect day. Get started right away. Which self-care ideas are you going to put into action right away?

She Believed

In case you didn’t already know, I was one of the featured authors in the She Believed Volume III book anthology just released on September 28, 2019. This is the 2nd published book anthology where my writing was featured.

My chapter in the She Believed Volume III Book Anthology is titled,” Divorce Yesterday’s Pain, Marry Tomorrow’s Promise.” Writing a glimpse of my story was an emotional yet rewarding opportunity. My story discusses love, pain, disappointment, healing, and wisdom gained. The writing process forced me to push beyond the fear of judgment to unapologetically share my truth.

In the midst of my life’s challenges, I never imagined God would use my pain and disappointments for His glory. God is so faithful.

Excerpt from page. 65.

“All I know is there was purpose in my pain, and there is purpose in your pain. Lord knows there have been times I’ve asked God, “why me?” Each painful experience had me feeling ‘some type of way’ towards God. I’m just keeping it real. I was angry at God. Why would He allow me to experience such deep pain?”

Have you ever experienced emotional or physical pain that it had you wondering what you had done to deserve it? I sure did.

Sharing your story to one person can be scary, but sharing your story inside a book without having control over who reads it  is insanely scary. I am proud of myself and the other authors who allowed ourselves to be vulnerable for our own healing and potentially to help inspire the healing of others. However, this anthology is proof that myself and 10 others were unapologetic, determined, and fearless in sharing our pursuit of destiny. If we did it, so can you. 

It is my hope that you will purchase this book for yourself or someone else. You just never know how this book will bless someone else who may be experiencing challenges and cannot see beyond their pain. Reading the stories of real life women who have overcome may be just what the “doctor” ordered.

To purchase the She Believed, Volume III Book from me for $20.00 (plus $3.00 shipping), please click the Donation link below.

What Is Digital Marketing?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Is Digital Marketing?

You have probably heard the term “digital marketing” and wondered what the heck it meant or maybe you heard it and could not care less. Digital Marketing is a very popular term in 2019. Some people refer to it as online marketing or online advertising. In a few years, it will have another name. While it has significant value, especially for business owners or entrepreneurs looking to brand themselves in their niche, I feel like it will have a new name in a few years. The name may change, but the impact and influence of digital marketing. Simply put, digital marketing is using the internet or digital technology for marketing. It isn’t complicated, however, can be a bit time consuming for business owners. It is the promotion of products or brands using social media. 

Examples (Tools) of Digital Marketing

  • Content Marketing (Blogging)
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Email Marketing
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Website
  • Online PR
  • Marketing Automation
  • Video Interviews
  • Instant Message Marketing
  • Online Pay-Per-Click Advertising
  • Affiliate Marketing

Benefits Of Digital Marketing To Market Your Business

  • Cost-effective
  • Reach Larger Audience & Target Your Ideal Audience
  • Measurable Results
  • Observe the Competition
  • Increase Audience Engagement Ability
  • Build Rapport or Improve Online Reputation

Importance of Digital Marketing

Now that you have an understanding of the definition, examples, and benefits of digital marketing. Let’s discuss the importance of digital marketing to businesses. Digital Marketing allows businesses to market to their target audience with a smaller advertising budget, reach a global audience, and immediately measure the success and effectiveness of the digital strategy. Trends are shifting away from traditional marketing, so digital marketing is definitely a term you want to understand. Consumers are influenced by the reviews others have posted about your business or product. For instance, nowadays when consumers want to book a hotel or order a product from Amazon, considerable time is spent reading the reviews. So, it is important for companies to analyze reviews, understand customer preferences, and have a solid understanding of what works and doesn’t work for your customer and potential customer. 

Simple Steps To Creating A Digital Marketing Strategy

Step One:    Identify your ideal customer/target audience and their interests

Step Two:    Define your goals

Step Three:  Identify which digital marketing channels or platforms to use

Step Four:   Create a content calendar

Step Five:    Automate marketing

Step Six:     Measure Strategy Effectiveness/Review Data Analytics

Are You Ready For The Birthday Charity Give Back??? **EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT**

HOW MY BRIGHT IDEA TURNED INTO A BIRTHDAY CHARITY EVENT

I am only SIX days away from my 43rd birthday coming up on July 15th. Hooray!!!! So, while I was at work earlier today, I started thinking about creative ways I could celebrate my birthday? I knew I wanted to do something that would make me feel good and help someone at the same time. IN THAT MOMENT, I picked up the phone and called an organization that I became aware of many years ago – Sacramento Crisis Nursery. To date, I have yet to volunteer, but in the meantime, I wanted to do something that would benefit the babies and children who benefit from the nursery’s emergency services.

A BIT ABOUT SACRAMENTO CRISIS NURSERY

According to their website, the Sacramento Children’s Home operates Sacramento’s only Crisis Nursery Program. [Their] mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing support to families at times of crisis. The Sacramento Crisis Nursery Program is a family-strengthening program where parents can bring their children, ages 0-5 for emergency child care or overnight care during stressful or difficult times.

Voluntary, confidential and free

  • Care provided 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • Children are cared for in a safe, loving and homelike environment
  • Age-appropriate play and learning activities
  • Crisis Intervention services and case management support for the family
  • Two locations: South Sacramento & North Sacramento
  • Care provided to children newborn to five (ages 0-5)

[They] are here if [individuals] need help caring for [their] children for any reason.

  • A sudden illness or accident
  • Feelings of desperation or helplessness
  • Emotional distress or frustration
  • Domestic violence
  • Homelessness
  • Drug or alcohol treatment
  • A medical or mental health situation
  • Employment or housing situation

Children may stay at the Nurseries for up to 30 days.

Each child has his or her own bed and is provided with all the essentials while they are staying at the Nursery, including clothing and shoes, diapers and formula. Nutritious homemade meals and snacks are served family style. Scheduled age-appropriate learning activities, playtime, mealtimes, and bedtime assist in stabilizing the child’s daily experience. The ultimate goal of [the] program is to keep families together and reduce the number of young children that enter into the foster care system.

The Crisis Nursery Program provides FREE emergency childcare for children age 0-5, as well as case management services for families during a crisis.

Product Review: DG Natural Essentials

What’s the story behind DG Natural Essentials?

According to their website, “…DG Natural Essentials Corporations – A family owned business. [They] were previously known as Daisy’s Girls. DG Natural Essentials is a tribute to [their] mother “Daisy Lee Jennings”. She was a phenomenal woman, the essence of the virtuous woman – the vision of natural beauty…”

My Product Review

I was blessed with three products (Virtuous Body Butter, Let’s Get Crackin’ Foot Cream, and Baby Fresh Lotion Bar) from one of the DG Natural Essential co-founders, Portia Green.

I was excited when I first learned that their products were natural with ingredients like, cocoa butter, soy bean oil, essential oils, etc. It took me about a week to try the products. The results have been positive.

At times, my skin can be a bit sensitive, so I proceeded with caution.

The foot cream and body butter have a nice light fragrance with just enough thick texture.

The body butter, like the foot cream, is Rich and creamy with light essential oil fragrances like peppermint, sweet orange, and more.

The lotion bar is not as thick and has more oil. So, if you struggle with the occasional ‘ashy ankles syndrome’, like I do, then try the lotion bar.

Sponsored Post?

This is not a sponsored paid blog post. I was blessed with these amazing natural products, so I NATURALLY had to write a product review of my wonderful experience with DG Natural Essentials.

Thank you DG Natural Essentials for blessing the world with your amazing products.
