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.
Psychological self-care is all about extending our knowledge, challenging ourselves, practising mindfulness and engaging our creative talents.
