Power of Self-Care
Power of Self-Care
Definition and Impact of Self Care (or Lack Thereof)
Self-care is any activity that we do in order to take care of our mind, body, and/or spirit. For example, self-care for the mind might mean prioritizing; self-care for the body might focus on exercise and nutrition; and self-care for the spirit might include service to others.
Good self-care is key to improving mood and reducing anxiety, building good relationships with others, living a healthy life that is balanced. Life is full of stressors, and self-care can be your “secret weapon” to stop burnout before it stops you, or to reverse it if it starts to take hold.
