WHY SUPPORT SELF-CARE AWARENESS MONTH?
Self-Care is a health preventative concept that alludes most of the country and thus needs mainstream education.
We spend our lives either taking care of others or driving ourselves to create perfection in our careers or relationships. As a result we become depleted. This depletion manifests itself in disease; mental, emotional or physical.
What compounds the problem is that taking time to care for ‘the self’ is perceived by many of us as selfish or self-centered and causes guilt.
By having an National Health Observance Campaign, we can spread the awareness that in order to live happy, healthy and productive lives, we need to replenish ourselves before we can be of help to others.
Michelle Obama told Barbara Walters in an interview that she makes herself her first priority. When asked if she felt that was selfish she answered,
“It’s practical… a lot of times we slip pretty low on our own priority list because we’re so busy caring for everyone else One of the things that I want to model for my girls is investing in themselves as much as they invest in others.”
By educating the public about the many benefits, physically and emotionally of self-care and by inspiring them to live life with passion and joy, we believe that the world would be filled with love and kindness, because it all started we us as individuals.
National Self-Care Awareness Month
Evolve to Live is proud to announce that we are the catalyst to have Self-Care Awareness Month become recognized on the National Calendar, for the month of September.
As Selfcare Awareness month comes to an end soon, I wanted to comment on how Pati has helped me in my life. I use her GPS for Living Perpetual Calendar daily. It is 365 days of encouragement and self-care. I shared this calendar with my Mother for several years, and use it daily. Today, September 29th, says, “Loving ourselves is the key in learning to love others!”. I think this is so important. It confirms that we need to take care of ourselves first, so that we can take care of others, work, business or anything in our daily lives.
Thank you Pati for reminding us that we are the most important person in our lives and to take care of ourselves!!!
Love ya, Peggy

WHY JOIN THIS NEW MOVEMENT?
Not only to raise Awareness but to HAVE FUN!
To raise the awareness of the incredible value of individual self-care in the nation. It’s a concept the alludes most of the country and thus needs to be more mainstream. People spend their lives either taking care of others or driving themselves to create perfection in their career or relationships, and as a result they become depleted. Most individuals feel guilty if they do take time for themselves, however if this were practiced regularly, the social and economic benefits would be extreme.
What we will be doing!
The concept has been many years in the works. However, September 2017, we launched it officially with our 1st Annual 30 Day Self-Care Challenge. We posted on Facebook and Instagram and shared with others, insights, tools and tips for reducing stress and enjoying life a little more.
Evolve to Live is a non-profit, international, educational, outreach organization, dedicated to supporting people of all ages and walks of life through life’s many transitions through self-care, while inspiring them to live life with passion and joy.
