Self Care and How these 4 Things Stop Us Reaching Our Full Potential

If you’ve been reading our blog for any length of time, I can guarantee that at some point, one of the things you’ll learn from us here at On Your Journey is that you need to make time to take care of yourself.

But, when it comes to self care, we all have blind spots that keep us from reaching our full potential. Bringing awareness to these blind spots or blocks – whether they are personality traits, feelings, or actions – can help us to overcome some of these, so that they don’t stop us in our self care efforts. 

These traits vary from person to person, but today let’s look at some of the most common blind spots that you may discover when working on self-care. 

In our culture of self-care, we tend to be blind to our own flaws and mistakes. But true self care and self love is not just about bubble baths and face masks, it is about facing ourselves and working on ourselves. It is not easy. 

Sometimes we fail to recognize how some of our behaviour and habits are affecting ourselves and those around us, and maybe holding us back. 

Here are just a few of the most common ones, so let us talk you through them and maybe some of these will resonate.

How to use the Christmas break to Kick Start 2022

By Sid madge, Meee

I was one of those adults that dreaded Christmas. But now I’ve got three little children, five years old, three and one, and I love it! (I also have an adult child too but she’s a bit grumpier about Christmas!) I love the ‘sparkle’ it brings to an otherwise cold and dreary time of year. Winter is tough for many of us, but Christmas can be a high point. I also love that I get time off work to enjoy time with my lovelies (my name for my children). We put our decorations up in mid-November because we just couldn’t wait to revel in the joy the festivities bring. 

It got me thinking what types of sparkles and joy we could all bring more of into our lives, businesses and to our work colleagues this coming year using classic Christmas elements.

The Giving 

A key focus of Christmas is the presents. It’s one of the reasons I didn’t like Christmas for so long, as it seemed to be less about being thankful and spending time with family and friends and more about what someone got for Christmas. It also used to depress me a bit that all this money was wasted on gifts that no one wanted or that were pointless when so much of the world had nothing.
