Defining Self-Care

By May 23, 2019Blog

What is self-care? Self-care is a term used to describe a way to take care of yourself. This could be physically, mentally, socially, or spiritually. As we care for ourselves and care for others, we take on a lot of stress and give a lot of ourselves, at times this can leave us feeling depleted. Self-care is different for everyone and might change week to week. So what are some simple and easy ways to practice self care?

  • Exercise
  • Yoga
  • Coffee with a friend
  • Read a book
  • Finding 10 minutes of alone time
  • Listening to music
  • Treating yourself to a yummy dessert
  • Asking for help (around the house, car pool, etc)
  • Talking to a counselor
  • Attending a community event
  • Finding a support group
  • Finding something that makes you laugh
