Looking after self? Yes of course, we are ready to shine!

Often we spend so much of our lives looking out for other people and wondering if they are all okay, and we spend such little time on ourselves. There are so many aspects of our own lives that we need to get right in advance.

It is so important to make sure you are doing enough to take care of yourself these days. Yes, it is good to look out for others, but it’s also important to look after yourself as well.


And one of the biggest way to also care for looking after self is living in gratitude. For once we realize that we are so grateful, our world completely changes. We are no longer dogged by the negative or external pressures.

We just live more simply basking in gratitude. And we accept things as they are. Gratitude is the path to truly heart-centric living.

Looking after self? Stop Sweating the Small Stuff

For those who worry, it is very easy to worry and freak out about every single little thing. There are so many issues these days that can leave you freaking out and panicking about stuff, and this is not healthy for you. 

You have to get into that mindset of not sweating the small stuff. Stop worrying about every conceivable little detail, and do as much as possible to be a more positive and upbeat person. This is going to make such a massive difference to your life moving forward.

Letting go of all that does not suit us, is the best way to really live our best life. When we find that balance, the flow becomes our path. We are no longer impeded by the external.

Talk to Someone About How You’re Feeling

The worst thing you can do these days is to bottle up the way you are feeling and spend too much time in your own head. If you have worries and fears, you need to confront them and do as much as possible to talk about it.

This means speaking to a friend or family member about your feelings, or even meeting with a professional if you feel that is necessary. Talking about your problems plays a big role in helping you deal with them, and this is so important for the future, and for your well-being.

  1. Hi Ariel, thank you for the advice I needed today. Sometimes, I forget to really focus on taking care of me so I can take care of the others in my life. Meditation has long been a part of my life altho I have never been a student. More of catch as catch can but central to my health routine. Walking is my daily exercise, and my wife remains my confidante and most valued advisor. Sweating the small stuff has always been my downfall and I can relate to finding balance and being on a good path. Thank you!

  2. Hi Ariel, This must have been the message I needed to hear today. I practice a informal type of mindful meditation, walk a few miles each day and (mostly) remember to take my meds. My wife is my strength and my confidante, a trusted partner. I do sweat the small stuff, way too much to be good for me and today was a doubt day for me. Thank you for reminding me that some things are beyond my control and I should focus on the things I have to be grateful for.

  3. Hello Sanders,
    So happy to see you here. I so hear you. I think we all need reminders at times, yes? How wonderful that you have your partner to have your back!
    That is a huge blessing.
    I know when I focus on gratitude, my world is just lovely. I wish that for you too.
    So glad this helped.
    Thanks so much for being here.
    In peace and gratitude, ariel
