7 Essential Tips for Empaths: Mastering Self-Care

7 Essential Tips for Empaths: Mastering Self-Care

Empatici possess a very special gift. They are able to sense your feelings and relate to them immediately.

These people will often even absorb the energy around you, get in tune with your feelings and are often described as sensibile.

And while this ability is amazing because you have the chance to provide compassion and help to those who need it, it also means that you are burdening yourself.

If you let yourself absorb the feelings of others, you may feel weak and doozy. It can also lead to anxiety and depression, if you don’t put up necessary boundaries and put yourself first.

If you want to learn how to thrive as an empath and use this superpower to achieve good, read on! 

Self-Care Tips for Empaths

If you want to learn to live normally with the ability that you have, you need to learn how to let go of what you absorbed from other people. 

1. Take Some Me-Time

It doesn’t matter if it’s half an hour of the whole day, you need to have some tempo da soli.

During this time you can read, exercise, do some yoga, journal, or whatever else you like.

Since you’re so prone to taking in everyone’s feelings, spending time away from all that noise will benefit your wellbeing greatly.

2. Keep an Eye on Who You Hang Out With

Giving so much energy to others is draining as it is. But spending time with energia vampires is a whole other thing.

If you sense that your body is weak, you may be around an energy vampire.

My advice is to get the hell away from those people, and look for people that will uplift your mind and soul!

3. Learn How to Say No

This one is definitely hard for some of you. And I know that you don’t want to come off as rude, but think about yourself for a second there.

When someone asks you for a favor for the 100th time, you should ask yourself ‘Does this benefit me?‘ and if the answer is ‘No‘, then you should tell the other person ‘No‘ as well.

4. Create a Safe Space

As much as it’s important to have alone time, you can’t always spend it at the gym or at a cafe.

If you’re outside, you can still fall prey to the energy vampires out there.

Your home is the best sanctuary, which you can transform to your liking. It provides peace and safety from the outside world and most importantly protects your sanity.

Find a corner in your home that can be just yours, cleanse it and relax!

5. Get a Hobby

Having a hobby and something to do will keep you focused on yourself. Whether it is painting, photography, writing, gaming or exercising, you need something that will solely focus on you.

It can be relaxing and rewarding at the same time.

Because at the end of the day, you’ll realize that you did something for yourself.

6. Mantras

This tip is good for people who don’t have much time during the day to take up new hobbies or go to the gym.

You can recite mantras during any part of the day and it doesn’t even matter what they are for.

They can be for amore, denaro or even protezione!

Choose a phrase that resonates with you and repeat it a couple of times during the day.

7. Better Diet

Everything that happens in our body is a reflection of the mind and vice versa.

Keeping a healthy body will help you focus your mind on things that matter. You know when you’re hungry, you’re not all there? The same goes for eating junk food.

I’m not saying you should never eat junk food, I’d be a hypocrite. I’m just saying that you need to fuel your body with things like fruits and veggies from time to time.

At The End of The Day

As an empath, when you prioritize self-care, you’ll see this ability as a gift e not a curse

By creating a safe space for yourself, finding time for self-care and prioritizing your interests and needs above others, you are taking important steps towards a healthy empath lifestyle.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, so take baby steps on your journey, but remain focused on the end goal, which is your benessere.

What you can never do is ignore your needs and the ability that you have, but you have to nurture it!
