Self-Care and Wellness for Women


I’ve worked with a lot of women over the years, a common trend with so many of them when they come to me seeking my help is the guilt they feel in taking time out for self-care. Here’s the thing, it’s so important to fill your cup up in order to give your best self to others.

Let go of the guilt, it’s ok to have some “Me’ Time!


While you might focus a lot on your physical health, working hard to lose weight and avoid certain medical conditions you are prone to, you should also focus on your mental health. This is when you think more about general wellness, practice self-care and trying to attain that balance that sometimes seems to be illusive to us. This can benefit nearly every facet of your life.

The tools you put in your self-care toolkit don’t need to be elaborate. They can be simple and easy to implement and most important tools that you enjoy and work specifically for you. Here are a few ideas you can start with straight away to practice self-care and wellness:

Exercise Daily

The first thing you can do in order to pay more attention to yourself is to exercise. This isn’t just for fitness or weight loss, but because it can help your mental wellbeing as well. Exercise is great for boosting energy and getting in a better mood thanks to the endorphins that are released. Exercising can also be wonderful for relieving stress, with just a few minutes of a walk each day. Try to find ways to get your body moving every day, whether you take a walk during your break at work, you go to the gym in the morning, or you try hiking during the weekend.

Find More Alone Time

If you’re like me sometimes, your days are probably over-filled already with things to be done, but make sure you find some time for yourself. This might be just 5-10 minutes a day, so make it count. Depending on your schedule, you can choose what time of day is best. This might be a 20-minute bath in the evenings after you have put the kids to bed, or a few minutes in the morning with your cup of green tea or coffee before the rest of the household wakes up. I tend to spend time in prayer and meditation first thing before I start my day.

Write in a Journal

Journaling is highly recommended for anyone, but as a woman, it is even more useful for you. You might have a full schedule, a high amount of stress, or simply need to vent your frustrations without upsetting anyone else. Journals can be therapeutic and cathartic, allowing you to narrow down what is wrong, help with physical health, and improve mental health and clarity. There really is an endless amount of reasons to write in a journal, and today is a great day to start.

Stop Feeling Guilty

As a woman, you might find that you feel guilty a lot of the time. Guilty feelings tend to be more prevalent in women, especially if you feel like you are lacking in a certain area of your life. This might be guilt over having to work while your kids are with a nanny or babysitter, guilty you don’t have enough time for your significant other, or feeling like you haven’t been spending enough time with friends. It is time to let go of that guilt and be realistic about how much time and energy you have.


Sleep is one of the most important and best self-care tip I can recommend. Here’s the thing, your body heals when you’re asleep and also releases toxins and bacteria from your body that are of absolutely no use to you, it also helps balance your hormones which in turn helps manage your weight. Try to get at least 7 – 8 hours quality sleep to keep you balanced and functioning at optimum levels during the day.

Implementing these few tips into your daily routine is a start to living a healthier lifestyle. Little changes here and there made consistently leads to a blissful lifestyle change.
