Self-care is any intentional actions you take to care for your physical, mental and emotional health. Sounds pretty simple doesn’t it? It can be a little more complicated than that. Believing you deserve it, putting yourself before others at times, and taking the time out of your day are some of the obstacles to doing this.
The more tangible goals for self-care are easier to identify: eat healthy, exercise, sleep well. Most of us can relate to working towards these goals at least once in our life. But even these are pretty difficult to stick too. It’s the ones that focus on the inner-self, that are really challenging.
Emotional self-care is vital to a healthy being. It can be as simple as taking a few minutes a day to meditate. Taking a step back is key. However, more often than not, we find ourselves wrapped up in bad situations that we unknowingly make worse by how we react to them. A few deep breaths when you are feeling stressed or out of sorts can work wonders!
