Self care first. New years resolutions second.
I truly believe that in order to stick to things that are good for you, you need to be in a good place mentally and emotionally, which is why a focus on self-care can help support any other intentions you have for the year.
For me, this could be yoga, meditation, paddle boarding, working out, walking with my daughters, reading (self development or murder mysteries are my favourite), cooking, playing board games or a long soak in a salty bath. These are things that (in a past, hectic life) I would often overlook in favour of working hard, socialising or doing things to please others.
This does mean setting my alarm an hour earlier than necessary, but it means I have a set time each day to dedicate to myself and my emotional health. Doing something at the same time every day helps to embed discipline into any new routine.
Having a focus on self-care is certainly not selfish or self-indulgent (as I may have thought in the past). It has made me healthier and happier and an all-round nicer person. Well, that's how I feel anyway!
