The Power of Selfcare - How To Take Care Of Yourself?

We would like to dedicate this post to the question of how we find our most energetic, productive, ecstatic and happiest self - and what better topic to discuss here than self-care, right known in English as: “SELF-CARE”?

"Q: Can you go out today?"

A: No, I am self-caring.”


WHO defines self-care as "the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health and manage illness and disability, with or without the support of a healthcare provider".

Physical health, which can be derived from “self-care”, is undoubtedly a cornerstone of well-being. But "self-care" goes far beyond the physical limits. Mental, emotional, and spiritual self-care are all important components that are connected and work together to create a Happy-You!

Finding a perfect balance between these areas may seem impossible at first. This guide can help you explore their deeper meanings, understand them and become aware of their existence, and then create an individual fusion of these basic elements. Whether it's "Self-Care Sunday", meditation, family time, a healthy meal or taking your dailybacs? Well - that's entirely up to you!


Managing stress properly can be a very helpful way to improve your happiness. For example, if something is beyond your power, your thoughts should also detach from it.


Nutrition, exercise, hydration and sleep are important components of physical self-sufficiency. These things help us keep our blood circulating, boost our metabolism and most importantly create a healthy gut flora which not only makes us feel good but look good too!


Emotional self-care can mean learning how to stand up for yourself and express your opinions - healthy assertiveness. At the same time, this can strengthen relationships with those around you, from family to co-workers.


Connecting your mind to your body can help increase energy and really revitalize your spirit. This can be anything and completely individual for you! A few inspirations: practicing conscious gratitude, immersing yourself in nature, 20 min. daily yoga, living more sustainably and showing more love for our planet, or just taking a bubble bath.

HAPPINESS IS CULTIVATED FROM WITHIN… and you have the power to unleash that positive energy from your inside vessel!

5 simple ways to practice self-care in your life - according to the motto #treatyourself:

  1. Say “no” to things you don't want to do every once in a while - If it feels wrong, why force yourself?
  1. Adopt a feel-good morning routine - What makes you feel good? Is a perfect morning routine for you to get up early, go for a walk and prepare a healthy breakfast?
  1. Unplug - Just pull the plug. Turn off your notifications and distance yourself from toxic influences. Relax with the help of an interesting podcast or feed your mind with meditation. Have a look at our Spotify podcast “BETTER INPUTS - BETTER OUTPUTS”.
  1. Long hugs - Did you know that if a hug lasts about 15-20 seconds, we release the long-awaited "love hormone" oxytocin?
  1. Focus on Mind & Body- Show your body the love it deserves. For example, by spoiling him with healthy food, intestinal care and exercise.

"Self-care is not a luxury, it's essential.”

If we discover good self-care practices for ourselves and establish them in our everyday lives, we will become more self-confident, more creative, healthier and happier! Research has found that self-care helps us make better decisions, build stronger relationships, and communicate more effectively—all factors that directly affect our mental state. Of course, the intestine also plays a central role in these processes, so that the state of mind can particularly benefit from it! Good self-care practices have a positive effect on the intestinal flora in every respect and vice-versa. Healthy eating, a morning routine with dailybacs and lots of positive energy are wonderful examples of this!
