Is it selfish to focus on your own self?


Self is something you shouldn’t talk about, according to traditional education, because it often gets interpreted as selfish.

You do a lot for others, but have you ever considered whether you are doing enough for yourself? Self-care is something that can easily be forgotten in our busy lives.

Still, it’s important to remember that you need to take care of yourself as well as those around you.

You are the only one who can take care of you. You are the only one who can make sure your needs are met, and that means taking care of both your physical body and mental health.

No one else will be as invested in your wellbeing as much as you are, so it’s important to prioritize self-care above all else.


The word “Self” Deserves a New Approach

The word "Self" Deserves a New ApproachSelf-care is a critical part of an overall healthy lifestyle. It can help you feel better, live longer, and make work more productive and less stressful.

It can be as simple as taking time for yourself every day or having regular check-ins with friends. Still, it can sometimes be more specific, like going to the spa or eating healthier food. Whatever form it takes, ensuring that you’re taking care of yourself is important so you can perform at your best throughout the day.

If you have followed my last two articles, the one about Health and the last one about Social, you can notice that this one about Self, in a way, is bridging together with each other.

To eat healthier, indeed, is essential when taking care of yourself. Correct balance on the social part also dramatically influences your self and self-esteem.


Questions you need to ask yourself

 Here are just a few examples of questions randomly listed that you could ask yourself and come up with a corresponding answer:

  • Do you pay attention to your emotions?
  • How is your mental fitness?
  • Do you have a regular gratitude practice?
  • Does your inner voice speak nicely to you?
  • Are you feeding yourself with positive inspiration?

Use these examples as a pattern to create your own battery of questions. Now comes the thrilling part of the exercise- try your very best to answer the questions. You need to be completely honest with yourself.

Some questions could be difficult to answer right away. You may need to think and reflect a bit. That’s good, as it shows that the topic has not passed through your mind frequently as a natural obstacle but rather as an “it is what it is” issue.


Let “Self” be Part of Your Wellbeing


Self-care is about taking time for yourself. It can be hard to find the time, but it’s essential. You may have less free time than you would like, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of yourself.

Self-care doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated; it could be something simple like taking a shower or going for a walk in the park
