Day 5: Create a Self Care List.
Welcome to day 5 of the 5 day Dot Grid Challenge! It's been amazing seeing your layouts, plans, and works of art. Now that your calendar is packed with tasks, it's time to practice a little self care.
When we’re busy keeping up with plans, taking on the daily grind, and generally feeling stressed, self care is usually the first thing to go. And that only makes things worse. We're taught to believe the more you sacrifice, the more you can achieve. It's simply untrue!
Self care increases your productivity in these ways:
1. Self care prevents burnout:
Burnout reduces productivity and drains your energy. It leaves you feeling hopeless, tired, and unmotivated. By practicing self care, you can prevent burnout.
2. Self care helps you focus:
The happier you feel, the more productive you are! Self care leaves you feeling refreshed, therefore more inspired.
3. Self care creates an attitude of gratitude for your body and mind.
When you spend time caring for something, you learn to appreciate it more. Shouldn't we apply this to our own bodies and mind?
