It is important to practice self care to keep up with self love and the motivation to constantly improve ourselves. Although self care should be part of our daily routine, there are times when we will become urgently in need of it.
So what are those urgent times when we will need self care?
Inability to switch off
Although planning is important, there is also a limit. If you find that you can’t stop planning and are constantly growing your list of to dos, it is a signal to care for yourself and get away from your planner.
When your mind starts to get submerged by thoughts about all of life’s problems and worries about everything you need to handle, making you feel indecisive about what to do next, it means you are feeling overwhelmed, which is a signal you need self care.
If you find yourself feeling like everything is going against you, irritated and frustrated by even the smallest thing, it is a sign for the need of self care to calm yourself down.
It is important to have some quiet time for yourself but it is equally important to have some connection time. When you start feeling lonely, it means you have been overly solitude and need to find someone to connect with.
Sometimes you will find your mind wandering into other thoughts, away from what you were supposed to be thinking about, making you lose focus. When that happens, it is a signal for the need of self care to clear your mind and get refocused.
So those are a few signs for the need of urgent self care. We should always be aware of the state we are in, both physically and emotionally, and not keep pushing ourselves beyond our limits.
