Are you really participating in self-care? Most individuals correlate self-care with receiving maintenance treatment or grand acts. Self-care should not be something we resort to because we are exhausted and we need some reprieve from our own internal pressures. Self-care is about treating the entirety of yourself.

A well-balanced self-care routine includes four main areas of your everyday life; physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional. The small decisions that you make daily will help you manage your self-care daily.
- Nourish your body by eating healthy and energizing foods that make you feel great.
- Get enough sleep and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
- Exercise to replenish your energy and manage stress.
- Sign up for a class, group, or workshop on a topic that is interesting to you.
- Challenge yourself within your community or at work to learn something new.
- Meditate, pray, or just reflect on what you’re grateful for.
- Practice forgiveness.
- Unplugging from technology.
- Seek out support from a therapist, coach, social worker, peer, or counselor.
- Journaling is another way to tap into the deep recesses of your mind and heart.
