Now Is The Time To Prioritize Yourself

In this time of uncertainty, we miss so many things—the scent of fresh air, the warmth of sunshine, the touch of our loved ones, the noise of the crowd, and everything that reminds us about the life we used to have in the outside world. But maybe now is that time to focus all our senses towards ourselves.

Now is the time to listen to your thoughts by writing down all the things that pop up in your head.

Now is the time to take care of your well-being by being aware of what you are doing and what you are putting into your body.

Now is the time to nourish your soul by doing the things you enjoy.

Now is the time to take a break by allowing yourself to have more time on your own.

Now is the time to reconnect your old self by cherishing moments though old photos, letters, and emails.

Now is the time to invest in your self-improvement by taking small steps to reach tiny milestones everyday.

Now is the time to acknowledge your fear by finding out what actually holds you off the things you have always wanted to do but didn’t.

Now is the time to accept your vulnerability by admitting that you are scared and worried like everyone else.

Now is the time to embrace your strength by realizing your accomplishments and how far you have come.

Now is the time to prioritize yourself rather than anything and anyone else.

There will be times that make us think of what-if scenarios; sometimes the unforeseen future makes us anxious. But we are always trying to place ourselves in the moment of “present,” “today,” and “now”.

Whatever happened in the past or might happen in the future, we always have to remind ourselves that now is the best time to just appreciate everything we have today.
