What is self-care?
Or rather, what does it mean to you?
For me - self-care is about living MY life. The life where I remember having dreams, ambitions, and being happy and fulfilled.
Overall, self-care could roughly be divided into five types: physical, emotional, psychological, professional and spiritual. There might be more, such as social, financial and environmental.
1. Physical self-care
It's about looking after our bodies. How can we do that? By making sure we take good care of it; by introducing breaks and me-time, eating a nutritious diet and by getting enough sleep.
2. Psychological self-care
Psychological self-care is all about extending our knowledge, challenging ourselves, practising mindfulness and engaging our creative talents.
3. Emotional self-care
This type of self-care is about acknowledging our boundaries, knowing our limits and being aware of our emotions.
4. Professional self-care
It's all about thriving professionally, including using your skills and talents, providing the best you can give to others, and looking after your needs, personal and professional.
5. Spiritual self-care
Spiritual self-care is about having values that are unique to you. Cherishing your beliefs and knowing your truth. It's also about meditating, reflecting and self-gratitude.
