In this video, Brooke-Sidney of Bella & The Babe reminds viewers to plan for self-care when they are planning out their days, weeks, and months. In this quick periscope video, she shares two key questions we should be asking as we plan for self-care.
First, what am I doing to refresh, refuel, and rejuvenate myself this week? Take a quick look at your week. Have you scheduled time for activities that bring you a sense of refreshment? Do you have time for fun built in? Brooke-Sidney invites you to take a good look at your schedule and review it for time where you are refueling, refreshing or rejuvenating yourself. These activities could look like prayer, meditation, taking a walk, manicure and pedicure, or spending time with girlfriends. Self-care ideas are as unique as you are.

Next, ask when are you scheduling time for self-care? After you've realized that your schedule does not have enough time set-aside for self-care, now you need to schedule it. If you don't put self-care in the schedule, it often doesn't happen. Self-care usually doesn't occur by chance. (But when those rare moments do occur, jump on them!) Try to schedule at least 15 minutes of self-care time per day. Remember, these activities could be simple, short, and sweet.
