Physical Self-Care

Taking care of your physical health is an essential part of self-care.

Physical self-care involves taking care of your body through proper nutrition, exercise, and sleep. It also includes nurturing your body through soothing baths, spending time in nature, and practicing stress reduction.

Taking care of your physical health is important at any age, but it becomes even more crucial as you enter your 50s and beyond.

Physical self-care for women over 50 involves caring for your body through activities that promote physical health and well-being.
