This is a process of purposeful engagement in strategies that promote healthy functioning and enhance well-being. It’s vital for building stress resilience and better equip you to live your best life.
Neglecting self-care may leave you overwhelmed, tired, and ill-equipped to handle life's challenges.
You need to take care of your body if you want it to run efficiently.
Physical self-care includes your eating, exercising and sleeping habits and how well you're caring for your physical needs. Attending appointments, taking medication as prescribed, and managing your health are all part of good physical self-care.
Socialization and close connections are key to your well-being. The best way to cultivate and maintain close relationships is to put time and energy into building your relationships with others.
Everyone has slightly different social needs. The key is to figure out what your social needs are and to build enough time in your schedule to create an optimal social life.
The way you think and the things that occupy your mind with greatly influence your psychological well-being.
Mental self-care includes doing things that keep your mind sharp, like solving puzzles, reading or learning about a subject that fascinates you. It also involves doing things that help you stay mentally healthy, like practicing self-compassion and acceptance.
Research shows that a lifestyle including religion or spirituality is generally a healthier lifestyle. That can be achieved through meditation, attending a religious service, or praying.
Nurturing your spirit, however, doesn't have to involve religion. It can involve anything that helps you develop a deeper sense of meaning, understanding, or connection with the universe.
It's important to have healthy coping skills to deal with uncomfortable emotions.
Emotional self-care may include activities that help you acknowledge and express your feelings on a regular basis.
