Most of us are familiar with the self-care practices advised by most wellness experts such as meditation, positive affirmations, and nourishing our bodies with superfoods. But there is a self-care element often overlooked that is just as essential to living our best lives and that’s the practice of getting and feeling more in control of our money.
Research has found that money is the biggest and most consistent source of stress in our lives. Anxiety over money impacts our mental and physical health and creates deep divides in our relationships. So many of us rush through life, working jobs we don’t always enjoy, buying things we don’t always need to impress people we don’t always like, that we forget to slow our roll long enough to consider what it is that we value and what role our money is supposed to play in our lives. Is it any wonder that we (and our pocketbooks) feel the burn out? Thankfully, reminding ourselves that it’s okay to slow down and give our mind, body, spirit and finances the attention they need can bring about the surge of energy and inspiration necessary to continue crafting a life we can truly love.
Whether it's February 14th or any other day of the year, show yourself some financial self-love on the regular by investing in yourself.
One of my all-time favorite quotes is from Queen Bey herself:
“I don’t like to gamble, but if there’s one thing I’m willing to bet on, it’s myself.”
No one is going to value you more than you value yourself. Make it top priority to get right with yourself and that includes also getting right with your money. You work so hard for your dinero, shouldn’t it start working hard for you too? One of my ultimate financial self-love moves was to put my money in places where it can get to work and grow for me.
