What does self-care look like?

Self-care is taking actions that lend to your overall well-being. This means caring for your mind, body and spirit.

Self-care may seem indulgent and time-consuming but it is an essential part of maintaining proper physical, mental and emotional balance. Without self-care, you may be able to go through the motions of daily living and even appear to be successful doing so but it will manifest sooner or later.

Self-care doesn’t have to be hours of meditation or time spent at a retreat. Self-care looks different for everyone and with our busy lives, including a few minutes every day may be all we can spare.

  • Sitting in the sun
  • Deactivating social media
  • Gentle exercise such as stretching or taking a walk
  • Drinking a warm drink
  • Taking regular screen breaks
  • Setting boundaries
  • Daily positive affirmations
  • Closing your eyes for five minutes
  • Getting a massage
