Choosing your people.

There are obvious ideas about self-care, such as pampering and meditation.  

Today I wanted to look at one practice which may not stand out as self-care, but I believe it is.

My tip today is to take some time to have a think about the people you surround yourself with.  Our time is precious and we need to make sure we spend it with people who act as your support network.

You may not realise it, but the people around us have the greatest impact on our lives.  Whether they have the ability to bring happiness to your life or make you miserable is down to you.  They can lift you up or bring you down very quickly, if you give them permission.

Your mental and physical wellbeing is paramount and no one is worth compromising that.  

Our health, and time on this earth, are too precious to spend it with people who are sucking the life out of you or add no value.  

Choose your people well and you are more likely to have happiness with good memories.

It doesn’t matter how small your circle is, a smaller number of trustworthy friendships mean more a large group of fake friends.  Choose quality over quantity and keep your circle small, if those are your true people.

It is also for you to decide who is good for your wellbeing, this is your power and should not be influenced by anyone else.  Make your own choices and rely on your own judgement.

If this means letting go of people, this might be the best decision you ever made for yourself.  Let go of negativity and invite in positivity.  Distance yourself from people who bring you down and mess with your mind.  

Surround yourself with people who give you love, care and confidence.  

The people who can lift your spirits when needed and cheer you on to win.  These are the people who care about your best interests, not their own.

Self-care is about taking care of our mental, emotional and physical health, all of which will benefit from being surrounded by good energy.

My simple self-care tip is take the time to evaluate your relationships and friendships.  You are worthy of mutually genuine relationships and love, so surround yourself with people who add happiness, rather than taking it away.

Take back the power and take care of YOU – you will feel better and attract better energy.
