Self-care describes a conscious act one takes in order to promote their own physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. Self-care is vital for building resilience toward those stressors in life that you can’t eliminate. When you have taken steps to care for your mind and body, you will be better equipped to live the best life. Unfortunately, many people view self-care as a luxury, rather than a priority. We take good care of our possessions like cars, gadgets, properties to keep them under good performance but often time we ignore our bodies that carry us every day to do so many activities of life. Consequently, we are left feeling overwhelmed, tired, and ill-equipped to handle life’s inevitable challenges. Are you getting adequate sleep? Is your diet fueling your body well? Are you taking charge of your health? Are you getting enough exercise? Are you getting enough face-to-face time with your friends? What are you doing to nurture your relationships with friends and family? Are you making enough time for activities that mentally stimulate you? Are you doing proactive things to help you stay mentally healthy? What questions do you ask yourself about your life and experience? Are you engaging in spiritual practices that you find fulfilling? Do you have healthy ways to process your emotions? Do you incorporate activities into your life that help you feel recharged?
