Podcast Episode #52
How do you show up for yourself?
In this podcast episode, Kirbanu talks about showing up for yourself and what this really means. In this society we are constantly giving and dropping our gas tanks to below empty, so Kirbanu is here to give you tangible tools to counteract this and think about how you’re not showing up for yourself, and what you need to change this…
Showing up for yourself!
Why should you show up for yourself, and what does that even mean? Showing up for yourself is about prioritizing your individual needs and well-being. And I know, in this busy world of ours, that isn’t always an easy thing to do! How often do you find yourself saying “yes” to everyone and everything else, but “no” to yourself?
The thing is, it’s essential to take care of yourself, and no-one else is going to do this for you. By taking care of yourself, by putting your needs first, making time for things that bring you joy, and learning to say “no,” you create a strong basis for your growth and happiness. You increase your sense of self-worth and wellbeing, and this energy radiates out from you into the world. People feel it. And they respect it.
So how can you show up for yourself?
One way is to take time throughout your day to check in and see how you’re feeling, to find out what you need, and to respond accordingly. Another way is by checking your expectations, and making sure that they’re realistic and achievable. Yet another still, is by looking after your basic nutritional needs and another is by keeping your promises with yourself. Setting healthy boundaries with yourself and with others – is a biggie as well as making time for self-care and decompression.
Remember, when you show up for yourself, you send a message to the world that you are worthy of love and respect. You radiate that energy. You also increase your joy and the way you feel in your daily life, who doesn’t want that?
So, show up for yourself, because you are sooo truly worth it!
