How Are You Taking Care of Yourself?

How are you taking care of yourself?

“Self-care is never a selfish act. It is only good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others.” – Parker J. Palmer.

There is nothing manlier than being independent in your ability to care for yourself, not just physically but emotionally. Confident men engage in self-care. They want to continuously improve their physical and mental appearance. That it is investing time and resources in grooming products that are designed to emphasize your strengths, as well as physical and mental activities. Focusing on self-care creates positive change and maintain wellness.

Manhood today is defined in terms of work, productivity and “get” mentality.  Instead why don’t men simply embrace other parts of themselves that make them who they are and most importantly make them happy?

Here are four ways the modern man can practice self-care:
  • Make time for yourself. Making time for yourself is not an act of selfishness. it is a priority as it is necessary to being at your best. If you are at your best everything around you is positively impacted. By the way, it does not mean that you have to devote most of your day to a physical activity. It could be as simple as listening to your favorite album on your daily commute or dedicate few hours to the gym every week or getting a haircut and a massage.
  • Embrace your physical and mental health. Staying on top of your mental as well as physical health can be nothing but beneficial in the long run. So make sure to get enough good night’s sleep. Have your yearly check-up proactively scheduled. Eat healthy and have a good hygiene practice.
  • Engage with the people that you care about and that respect and love you. Studies have shown that maintaining meaningful relationships positively influence mental health. When it comes to romantic relationships, spending time to maintain and develop your relationship, increases both the energy of the relationship, as well as your well-being, mood, and productivity.
  • Find what give you energy and ignite passion in your life. Is doing outdoor activities what get you going? Or simply enjoying reading a good book? Making time to engage in these activities, whatever they may be, is important to build into your schedule. Knowing what brings you joy and being proactive about it has been shown to increase well-being.

Make sure to pay attention to the little signs like a short temper or exhaustion, as it can help identify when it may be time for either a mental health day, or for a half hour or so to yourself, doing something that you know helps you “reset.”

Bottom line, Self-care isn’t just an activity you can build into your daily life. It’s a mindset that you should embody, involving putting yourself first, and checking in with yourself regularly to help put your best foot forward in everything you do. Remember, taking care of yourself creates the ground from which you impact your whole world. It is the most important thing you can focus on. Renewing yourself will help you perform better at work, improve your confidence and your life experience.

What are you waiting for?
