Why Do We Need Self Care?
Life moves at such a rapid pace these days. Being busy is worn as a badge of honor. It sometimes seems like no one wants to admit that have a moment to spare to relax. Taking time to crash on the couch with a good book…when was the last time you found time to do this?
Sometimes, when we think of self-care, our mind goes to fun and indulgent self care ideas like a spa day, vacation or a shopping trip. But, while all of those things are really nice, we need to make sure we are covering the basics of caring for ourselves.
Self-care is much more about being intentional with our time and resources. When we make sure that our own basic needs are met, we are much more able to pour our energy into others.
Self care daily habits like drink enough water, getting adequate hours of sleep, spending a time putting the phone away, talking to a family member of friend. These are just some of the self care activities we need in order to thrive. Most self-care activities do not cost any money!
There are a lot of health benefits of self-care. By taking care of ourselves, we are able to:
- Sleep Better
- Stay Healthy
- Maintain Healthy Relationships with Yourself and Others
- Have a Positive Outlook
- Improve Mental Health
