On this episode, I talk to Katrina McGhee, the founder of Loving on Me and author of Loving on Me!: Lessons Learned on the Journey from MESS to MESSAGE. Katrina talked to us about the importance of self care and why it should not just be something we use as a reward system, but should be integrated into our daily lives. She gives us practical tips on how to make ourselves a priority and why knowing our self worth is the first step.
How to integrate self care into your daily routine:
1. Set the tone for the day. Before you do anything else take a moment of gratitude. Be thankful to be present in your body and your right mind.
2. Cultivate selective ignorance. There’s a lot of negativity in the daily news. Decide how much regular news and social media you are going to take in for the day and then cut it off.
3. Focus and finish your top 3 from your “to do” list.
