Routinely engaging in self care contributes to your ability to experience balance and financial success in life. As we continue to feel the sting of the current economic crisis, it is important that we invest both our time and money in rebuilding ourselves emotionally and physically. When we are faced with hardship, self care is often one of the very first things to be stripped from our budgets. Self care is often looked upon as a luxury instead of being an essential part of our overall well being and future growth. The stress of job loss, unpaid debts, and the uncertainty of one’s future can be combated by taking better care of ourselves. If you are going to stand up against all the test and trials coming your way, then you need to do things that strengthen you and give you the ability to endure hardship. If you feel better then you will perform better. This translates into having a better attitude, which will eventually lead to a better job or increased business, improved health, and ultimately increased wealth. It has been said repeatedly by many “Attitude determines your altitude.” If you desire to experience success, then you must change your attitude. Taking time to nurture yourself will help you. The myth is that self care is expensive. However, there are simple things that you can do that won’t break the bank.
