For some people, taking care of themselves and thinking positively comes naturally, but for others this can be a struggle. Many people prioritize the wellbeing of others over their own; caring for lovers, friends or family members before tuning in to their own needs. Another barrier to effective self care is having a very busy daily life. Some may find themselves focusing on daily tasks such as work, keeping up the home and running errands. They may feel too exhausted to even consider doing something for themselves by the end of the day.
