Intention assures self care

By blocking time to pause and reflect, you make sure your intentions for self care happen.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Before the pandemic, self care and balance were on my radar. We are all busy and busyness keeps us from setting aside time for ourselves. Now that intention is required.

What does intention look life in real life? It is actually a time block on your calendar. It is a theme day on your plan. Each morning taking a walk offers me a time for introspection and creativity. On Friday afternoon take the afternoon off starting at 3 pm. During that time I take a walk, read a book, or connect with my family. Sundays are my day to reset for the week. The flexibility of my career gives me time to set intentionally for self care.

What if you gave yourself the opportunity to have more structure in your life and that structure included self care? Your rewards would be the deep feeling of wellness that we need in uncertain times.
