- .FACT vs. MYTH about self careSelf-care myths pervade our culture to a point where the understanding of self-care is but a muddy reflection of what it actually is – but, worse than that – the many benefits of self-care have been buried so deep in that mud we don’t even know what we are missing!.
- Myth : Self-care is hard work
- Truth: Self-care is by definition caring, and is also very simple. Caring for yourself quickly becomes second nature and is a normal part of your everyday life.
- Myth: Self-care is about pampering yourself
- Truth: Self-care is not concerned with feeling good for an hour or two, or even a week or two – it is about a forever and daily care of self. It cares for the whole body, so eating a box of chocolates doesn’t count as self-care [ given the sugar low and potential mood swings that will inevitably follow].
- Myth: Self-care takes a lot of effort
- Truth: Self-care is in the little things, like closing the car door gently or leaving enough time to get ready for work so you don’t have to rush, or going for a walk at lunch time simply to enjoy the fresh air..
- Myth: Self-care is about having a great-looking body
- Truth: With self-care you will see the body through different eyes. It won’t be about whether there is an absence of fat or sculpted muscles, but about whether there is a tenderness, joy and love emanating from within. The physical look of the body will naturally follow the tenderness..
