Radical Self-Confidence, and radical Health and Wellbeing are ONLY possible when we have a Radical Self-Care Routine.
These Daily Habits of self care go beyond the usual recommendation and what our parents taught us – eating 5 portions of veg a day, going to the gym, or jogging or attending classes, taking vitamins and treating ourselves to an occasional massage IS NOT ENOUGH.
When I was growing up, we ate exceptionally well (in comparison with my friends and neighbours), I was taught how to wash myself, to brush my teeth in circular motion, to visit a dentist regularly, gyno too, and to have a decent hair cut/style, to moisturise and cleanse, keep my nails clean and tidy, and my feet nice and smooth.
I still do these things today.
But sadly – that was it! These basic acts of self-care were beyond basic really – they were a meagre attempt at trying to look after myself.
Self-care is a LEARNED SKILL.
Much like any other proficiency.
If you wanna play a piano- you go to a good piano teacher.
If you wanted to be a business analyst, a business manager, administrative assistant, work as an IT buff, or an executive or executive assistant – YOU HAD TO LEARN those skills needed.
And so is with radical self-care.
My own life evolved beyond what I ever imagined when I learned how to incorporate the 10 habits of yoga and Ayurveda into my daily rhythm.
