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 to have dreams, ambitions, being happy and fulfilled.

Overall, self-care could roughly be divided into 5 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, by eating a nutritious diet and 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.
