How Could You Take Better Care of Yourself

You know how important it is for you to take good care of your body, mind, and soul every day, not just when you get sick. 

Learning how to eat right, reduce stress, exercise regularly, and take a time-out when you need it - are some of the most important self-care acts you need to do to stay healthy, happy, and resilient.


Actually practicing self-care isn’t always easy. 

Most of us are crazy busy, have stressful jobs, or are too consumed with technology to make time for ourselves.

Me-time is usually last on the agenda.

Even worse, you can sometimes feel guilty about taking the time required to take care of yourself, right?

    I think that physicaly I take good care of myself. What is difficult for me is to manage my personal life.

    I have to deal with many important things that are not always easy to manage. Sometimes I have to take decisions that are not easy, and I´m afraid that I took the good one. I have also a feeling of guilty with my daughter … And maybe those things have influence in my physical health.

  • Kathrin Neckermann says:

    I’m a bit late with reacting, but nevertheless… 🙂

    Lately, I’m more and more busy with taking more ME-time. In my present coaching-trajectcame came out of a test, that my main need is harmony and rest. Now I’m challenged by planning ME-time ON BEFOREHAND in a special calendar. This is really challenging, because normally I only register AFTERWARDS what I did that day and then found out that I took no ME-time at all!

    About 1 month ago I took part in a thankfulness-challenge by a German guy (SEOM) based on the book ,The Magic’ of Rhonda Byrne from ‘The Secret’. I was blown away…daily exercises so simple and effective… I do this still and start all over again once it’s finished. I’m definitely thankful for having discovered this…

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thank you Kathrin for your fantastic and valuable input on this issue.
      Seems like a great way to take ME-Time.

  • Alma Ooster says:

    I can take better care care of myself by:
    – spending more time with me, relaxing
    – drinking more water
    – enjoy fun and laughing moments with others
    _ take a moment at the end of each day to reflect on the day
    – accepting who I am
    – walking in nature
    – being grateful list before sleeping.

  • This exercise gave me such a happy feeling! Oh my, there are so many things to be grateful for. So many things I appreciate right now. So many beautiful people in my life. Thanks for the invitation to be aware of that.

    I can take better care care of myself by:
    – spending more time with me, relaxing and musing
    – drinking more water
    – taking a moment each day to establish what is really important to me and make time for doing that
    – accepting who I am in all aspects
    – walking and gardening mindfully
    – spend less money on things I don’t need
    – and laughing even more!

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thanks Manny for your valuable and honest contribution.

      Now the question is which of those things are you going to do and WHEN?
      That’s what would make the difference between just having insights or improving the quality of your life.

      • That’s right. So … I will:
        – drink more water, starting today
        – take a moment each day after breakfast to establish what is really important to me and make time for doing that, starting tomorrow
        – and accept who I am in all aspects, starting NOW.

    I try to stay in the moment 24/7 and only do one thing when needed

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thanks for your contribution Bart.
      Would love to know what helps you to stay in the moment?

  • Vincent Bakker says:

    Let’s say I am grateful I attended the Business Bootcamp because I met Ruud Weterings after that I followed you and other influencers and picked up the reading speed, not there yet where I want to be but aware of all the opportunities now. Doubling up in sport ,nature and Meditation. Questioning everything sometimes great sometimes very hard to do but will be worth it in some time

    Anyway thx for your information and knowledge

    Today is a brand new day and …

    • Vered Neta says:

  • Hanny Schouten says:

    In my age selfceare is very important, so I give myself organic vegetables, mineral supplements, lots of movements, do some breathing eccercises, 7 1/2 hour night rest, meditation twice a day, regularly family / social contacts and I drink crystal clean water. And I love to walk in the forests or on the beach.

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thanks Hanny for this great contribution.

      I believe self-care is good for any age… Your steps are fantastic thanks for sharing it with us

  • Hi,

    I do already a lot and I think I can spend more time to do.

    To take action to contribute to people’s life etc to help them grow as the human as what they are

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thanks Roland for your valuable contribution.

      What do you do for YOUR OWN self care? How do you take care of yourself? In order to give to others we need to make sure we’re taking care of ourselves otherwise we can’t truly give as much as we can.

  • Gerdy Heek says:

    Writing down what I am grateful for always helps. My favorite way of self care. Of course next to that taking a hot tub with a pot tea, or having a chat with one of my loved ones also are part of my “taking care”.

    My biggest thing to take care of myself though… is allowing myself to mess up. Not finish something that I planned. And then not beat myself up for it. Sounds easy, but it’s not.

    • Vered Neta says:

      Thanks Gerdy for this fantastic input.

      I totally agree with you not beating ourselves for messing it up is one of the best ways of expressing self-love & self-care.

      We tend to want to do everything perfect and by that we forget that we’re only human and messing things are part of it, so accepting it & still loving ourselves for it is HUGE step of taking care.
