Self-Care Basics

Self-care is a term that has gained popularity in recent years, but what does it actually mean? At its core, self-care refers to taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally.

In fact, there are 8 pillars of self-care, covering all areas of your life that need attention and nurturing for you to be your best self.

They are:  mental, spiritual, physical, emotional, social, recreational, environmental, and financial self-care.

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in the demands of work, family, and social obligations. However, neglecting your own needs can lead to burnout, stress, and even physical illness.

By taking the time to care for yourself, you can improve your overall health and happiness, and be better equipped to handle life’s challenges.

Self-care can include activities such as exercise, healthy eating, getting enough sleep, practicing mindfulness, and setting boundaries in your relationships.
