The Importance of Taking Care of You

The Importance of Taking Care of You

 

Several of our customers have asked us, how we stay motivated, healthy, and happy?  After much thought, we realized that we (us sisters) make taking care of ourselves, a priority. We are supporting our families and friends as best we can, while working with YOU our amazing customers! 

 

 

So how do we stay motivated you may ask?  In our work, we are motivated to design unique jewelry so women can feel transformed in the blink of an eye.  We watch women put on our creations and when a smile appears on their face, we get energized. As one client said, “Darn, I look good in these earrings.”  

Our hope is to inspire others so you too can discover ways to incorporate self-care into your daily life.   

What is Self-Care?

Self-care is knowing what your mind and body need. The question is, why is it so important?

If you’re looking to live a happier, more satisfying life, self-care is key. Taking care of yourself may seem selfish, but it’s crucial to your wellbeing and to those close to you.

Why is Self-Care Important?

Self-care is how you ensure your mind and body are functioning as well as they can. Some of the main benefits of self-care include:

  • Improved physical and mental health
  • Increased energy
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Strength to fight off disease
  • More confidence and love to better assist others

5 Areas of Self-Care. 

Did you know there are different areas of self-care you can focus on? 

1. Emotional & Mental self-care 🧘‍♀️

Emotional self-care focuses on activities that help you connect, reflect, and process your emotions. 

Here are some self-care tips in this area you can try:

  • Read a book 📖 – which distracts the mind and boost your areas of focus. For example, I recently joined a book club where we read a book and discuss it.  Nevra takes a French Literature class to read and practice her language skills. 

  • Take a day trip 🛣 – just getting away for a few hours feels good. Take a day trip somewhere new and see just how much better you feel when you return home.  We both love to go on hikes and walk in nature. 
  • Solving puzzles 🧩 – is another great distraction. This can boost mental focus too, helping to prevent memory loss later in life.
  •  

  • Start a gratitude journal 📔– It trains the brain to become more positive. Writing in a gratitude journal for 21 days can have a significant impact on your outlook on life.  

  • 2. Physical self-care 

    Physical self-care relates to activities that help to improve your physical health. It includes healthier lifestyle choices (sleep, nourish your body etc..) and getting more fit. The healthier the body is, the lower your risk of developing an illness or disease. Pick activities you enjoy!

    3. Practical self-care

    Practical self-care relates to tasks that fulfill the core aspects of your life. It is about avoiding potentially stressful situations in the future. For example, your finances, career, and home organization skills fit into this area. 

    4. Social self-care

    Social self-care focuses on nurturing your relationships. Healthy friendships are crucial to our well-being. Numerous studies show the importance of good social connections in terms of how we feel. 

    5. Spiritual self-care

    Finally, spiritual self-care helps you identify and connect to your inner self in a better way. It doesn’t have to be religious, although for some people it may be, for others it’s meditation or self-reflection. 

    Figure out one small self-care change you can make to address one of these areas this next month and share with us!

    One way our customers feel better (as they have told us) is when they wear certain gemstones.  We had one woman buy a sapphire necklace because she was looking for prosperity and was aware of sapphire’s benefits: 

    Blue Sapphire is believed to bring protection, good fortune, and spiritual insight to those who wear it. It is a symbol of power and strength, but also of kindness and wise judgment.  

     

    Another customer was searching for calm and decided to purchase our aquamarine two-stone squeeze bracelet.  This piece has been so popular, we only have one left! 

     

    We hope these tips are valuable and you will think about how best YOU can take care of you!
