How did I start practising self-care?
I started from scratch. I used to forget my needs, so it was not so easy to discover something about myself. But I did it step by step, and I have learnt that when you start to learn something about yourself, you feel a sense of fullness.
It’s like when you finally find the last piece of your puzzle, and you can see the big picture. You gain the clarity of yourself, and you want to learn more and more because, in the end, you know yourself.
I really hope that you can finally know who you are and what to do for yourself. I know that you can do it.
My self-care path includes:
Along my path in self-care, I learnt an important truth:
You can’t take care of yourself without self-awareness. Living on autopilot means not having the opportunity to have a meaningful life.
Self-awareness can make a big difference to your life.
How can we cultivate and develop self-awareness?
In this section you can find some TTP about how to know yourself and your needs better, how to set your boundaries and how to check your thoughts in order to manage your mental energy.
A healthy lifestyle has several benefits. Your body becomes free of various disorders and you live longer. Did I use to take care of my health? No, I didn’t. Why? Because I was not motivated to make enough efforts for myself and I found a lot of excuses. Step by step, I have changed my outlook and I have found some reasons for doing so:
· when I take care of my health I feel active,
· when I take care of my health I feel less stress,
· when I take care of my health I’m aware of my body,
· when I take care of my health I save money,
· when I take care of my health my immune system is stronger.
I have found my motivation and, in this section, you can find my tips about how I take care of my health through simple daily routines.
In this section you can find some TTP about how you can improve your sleep, some simple exercises to have a good posture and increase your energy level, some TTP about a healthy diet and the importance of your annual check-up to prevent some serious illnesses.
The content on my TTP is designed to give advice from my personal experience and they don’t replace medical treatment. Please seek professional care if you feel pain or if you believe you may have a medical condition.
If you feel pain, don’t ignore it, go to the doctor, or a physiotherapist or osteopath. Paying attention to your body and noticing how you feel are the most important self-care habits.
If you do not take time out for relaxing, your health may be damaged but fortunately the decision to give yourself relaxation time is entirely yours.

Gratitude and joy
In this section you can find some TTP that help you to pay more attention to the beauty of the world and to express your gratitude and joy on a daily basis.
It’s a slow process, but day by day you start observing the world through different eyes. You feel more compassion. You look at the beauty of the world. You start looking at something beautiful during a boring routine day. You start feeling joy reading some powerful words, and you feel a sense of satisfaction listening to a song.
Connection with the world.
When you take care of yourself, you have more energy and more emotional resources to dedicate to your family and friends.
You cannot do great things if you don't feel well about yourself. If you are stuck in a situation of illness or unhappiness, you can’t offer any help or support to anyone else!
On the other hand, when you feel full of energy, everyone around you can feel your vitality, and you become a source of kindness and an example for your family and friends.
In this section you can find some TTP to help you to spread acts of kindness and acts of love on a daily basis.
