September is a special month. It marks the official end of summer and ushers in the cool fall air and autumn winds. September means a lot to us here at CEO CHIC LIFE. This vision and website was brought to life on September 8th, 2014. In the four years that I've been living this CEO CHIC LIFE, one of the most important tools in my tool box is self care. So when I learned that September is also National Self Care Month, I knew the universe was doing her thing! As usual.
Non-profit organization, Evolve To Live, founded Self-Care Awareness Month to raise awareness of the incredible benefits of individual self-care. When practiced regularly, self-care creates significant personal, social and economic benefits.
The Registrar at National Day Calendar declared Self-Care Awareness Month to be observed annually in September beginning in 2017.
WHAT IS SELF CARE
Self-care is any activity we do deliberately to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Self care is an individualized practice that helps us to navigate and balance the ups and downs of daily life. Not to be mistaken by being selfish, self care is about putting your needs first in order to better serve others.
HOW TO OBSERVE SELF CARE AWARENESS MONTH
Use the month of September to make self-care a part of your daily routine – practice being good to yourself. It can be as simple as a conscious breathe in the morning or as luxurious as time away from the pressures of everyday life. The kindness we show towards ourselves will manifest into a kinder world.
