Live a Well-Designed Life Personality, Character & Self-Discovery

Be on your own ‘to-do’ list

What are you doing for YOU today? This is where you start making sure you’ve included yourself on your own ‘to-do’ list. To sustain your optimal level of well-being, you need to take responsibility for scheduling self-care and treat it as the most important job in the world – because it simply is.

This does not mean booking a holiday or shopping trip (although you can if you want to), but rather a deep level of care. It is about honouring yourself and not succumbing to anxiety or guilt about looking after yourself.

Making pleasure a priority is critical for extreme self-care. Real pleasure is achieved by developing habits that make you feel happy and nurtured. These could include:

  • listening to the music you love on your commute to work
  • drinking your favourite tea each morning
  • buying flowers for your work desk or home
  • going out for dinner once a fortnight with friends
  • seeing a movie every month
  • taking a break from work in the middle of the day to get out into nature
  • booking a regular pedicure
  • visiting your local museums or art galleries
  • organising regular walks with friends
  • curling up with a book on Sunday afternoons

Your success toolkit is your immediate go-to when you are feeling a bit out of control, stressed and stuck. It is your personal backup for when life throws a curveball or you’re just worn out and will help put you back in the driver’s seat again.
