Taking care of yourself: self-care assessment
Many of the life coaching clients I speak with are taking care of everyone else’s needs, but putting themselves last on the list. But we can’t give what we don’t have. And when it comes to stress, women are notorious at forgetting to take good care of themselves.Things like eating healthfully to nourish the mind and body, getting enough rest, participating in activities that bring us joy, and spending time with people who make us laugh can fall to the wayside.
If you’re feeling low in energy, low in spirits, are suffering stress, or are experiencing a loss or grief – – you may very well need to take notice of how well you are caring for yourself.
Taking care of yourself is part of living in balance and joy
Consider taking my simple self-care assessment, which can be accessed at the bottom of this article, to see how well you’re taking care of yourself.
To keep this simple, the Balance and Joy Life Coaching self-care assessment covers just four key areas, and takes only a few minutes to complete. The self-care assessment will give you a basic idea of where you’re doing well, and where you’re not – – which will empower you with specific knowledge. Knowledge is then actionable.
My suggestion is to take the self-care assessment now, then set some specific goals for taking care of yourself in those areas where you need it most. Then, after a couple of weeks, check your progress by taking the self-care assessment again.
