The Importance of Self Care

Hello and Salaams!

This page is now being revised and edited for inclusion in my upcoming book, published by Beacon Books!

Do look out for a link to pre-order, coming soon.

Peace and Love,

Sidra Ansari

PS Previously, I said I’d list 3 new things I’m grateful for on each post. This will help me on my journey to Enoughism.

So the 3 things I’m grateful right now are:

  1.  My cast has come off! Yay! Last week on Thursday I went to get my cast removed.  It is now in a splint so I still have limited movement but I am able to get a lot more done now and my arm feels as light as air!  Thank you all for your concern and good wishes on that front.  I still need help with the school run and have had lots of help from family so far.  Please take a moment here to send good thoughts and prayers to all those who have helped, and are selflessly still helping whilst I’m on my journey to full recovery.
  2. A surprise bunch of beautiful flowers and chocolates from my lovely mother and family who live a few hundred miles away.  Thank you! Love you guys!
  3. The joy on Mr Smiley’s face when he went for his first official football training session and received a ‘best player’ trophy.  All that kicking around with his older brothers has paid off!  He doesn’t realise he has to give it back yet (uh oh!) and thinks the little cartoon guy on the plaque at the front of the trophy is him! Ah bless!

How is your journey to Enoughism going? Please share!

Since you’re here I have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the the7ofus.blog than ever but advertising revenues are non-existent. And unlike many lifestyle magazines, I haven’t put up a paywall – I want to keep my writing as open as I can. So you can see why I need to ask for your help. These posts take a lot of time and hard work to produce. It would be amazing if you could help fund me by donating a coffee a two to keep me going! Please press here to give.

  1. Loved reading this Sidra I totally agree it’s very important for us, women especially to stop and take care of ourselves too. We are too busy looking after our loved ones that we forget to make time for self-care, which is just as important if not more important!
    How can one look after others if one is not taking care of oneself?
    Let’s prioritize some time for self-care ladies 👌🏼
