I'm Teresa Wagstaff, the founder of YesUCan and your guide on this journey towards prioritising self-care. I started YesUCan back in 2017 after learning how to walk again, due to years in a bed because of complications from a broken neck.
Now, YesUCan is committed to helping women understand that self-care is not just important, but essential for a happy, fulfilling life.
I wrote YesUCan's Ultimate Self-Care Guidebook for Women and in this Guidebook, you'll find strategies and tips designed to help you build your own self-care routine, find strength, and gain confidence. We now hold workshops on the subject at Eatonvale Farm or online, and we aim to provide a safe and fun environment where women can learn new self-care skills.
Well that's a bit of a background...so, let's dive in!
Self-care isn't just a buzzword. It's an ongoing practice that should become part of your daily routine. Regular self-care can include activities like exercising, eating healthily, getting enough sleep, self-hypnosis, meditating, walking, journaling, or having meaningful conversations with friends and family. These activities can help nourish your mind and body, leaving you feeling energised and ready to handle life's challenges.
This Guidebook explores different forms of self-care, from physical activities to mental health strategies, that can help you create balance in your life.
Why is Self-Care Important?
Self-care is about investing in yourself and setting boundaries. It’s about taking time to recharge so that you can better handle the stressors of life and show up authentically for yourself and those who matter to you.
When you take care of yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, you become more resilient, confident, and empowered. This can lead to a happier and healthier life for yourself and those around you.
Give Yourself a Time Out
It's important to give yourself permission to explore activities that bring joy into your life. This could be volunteering at the local animal shelter, taking up photography classes, or even just taking a walk on the beach, or in the park. Whatever you choose, make sure it's something that makes you happy and helps you feel fulfilled.
Ways to Practice Self-Care for The Mind
There are many ways to practice self-care for the mind. You could learn something new every day, stay connected with your loved ones, take a break from technology, practice gratitude, start a journal, get creative, get moving, take time for yourself, and get organised.
By practicing these simple steps, you can create your own self-care plan tailored to your individual needs. Remember, it takes time and effort to build a strong foundation of self-care habits - so start now and take baby steps each day.
Daily Success Habits
This YesUCan tool can help you build a simple personal framework for your day. By identifying your top three priorities and stressors in life, you can begin to develop positive daily habits that best support your life.
