What is Self-Care ?
Self-care involves taking the time to rest, reflect, replenish and renew. Most of us know the things we must do to keep us going everyday, like eating, sleeping or drinking water.
And while we may know these things very well, too often when our lives get stressful we can get caught up in the moment, and forget the things we must do to take care of ourselves.
Self-care is not just about meeting our physical needs for food, water, sleep or exercise. Practicing self-care also means addressing our mental, emotional, environmental, social and spiritual. Practicing self-care can help us identify our own needs, goals, health, and accomplishments in life.
These are just a few examples of self-care activities you can do in each dimension. Keep in mind that self-care looks different for everyone! If one of these activities don’t work for you, don’t sweat it. Try as many as you want until you find something that works!
