How's your self-care these days? We're getting back to the basics of care of body, mind, and spirit. Maybe your self care got off track during the pandemic, but it’s always a good time to do a care inventory. It’s important to ask yourself 5 things about your self care: 1) Is it affordable? 2) Is it sustainable? 3) Is it enjoyable? 4) Is it flexible? 5) Is it actionable?
Here’s what we know about self care. You have to like what you choose to do (enjoyable). You might need to change it at a moment’s notice (flexible). It needs to be something you can do for the long term (sustainable). Your activities must be within your budget (affordable). Self-care activities have to be realistic for you, something you can actually do (actionable).
Start your self-care - get an accountability partner and get started taking care of your whole self. Mind, body, and spirit, all of your Self matters!
