To take care of yourself or not to. That’s the question. Some people may find it pointless to spend time with self-care – after all, time is all about money, money, money – but we believe that taking care of your body and soul can actually help with your productivity instead of only getting in the way. Imagine the most important parts of your life: health, safety, relationships, self-esteem, and self-actualization. In order to have it all, you can’t underestimate any of these. So try to imagine these 5 needs in a pyramid. The most basic needs come in the bottom – health and safety. Then, in the middle, there are psychological needs – relationships and self-esteem. The upper is self-fulfillment needs aka self-actualization.If you haven’t heard of this type of thinking before, this whole way to seeing things is derived from something called Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. You can’t just try to get to the top if you don’t have the basic needs fulfilled already. You need the bottom of the pyramid to give you support, otherwise, you won’t be prepared – it’s not like you need to satisfy each need to 100% before the next emerges, but you have to at least feel strong enough. After all, we are all only human. If the physiological needs aren’t satisfied, the human body cannot function at its best. From our point of view, these are the most important ones – since all the other needs seem secondary if these needs aren’t met. That’s why self-care is so important for your productivity. You need to have a strong base before trying to achieve the unachievable. Otherwise, what’s the point?Try to think about the priorities you have nowadays. Is YOURSELF included on that list?
