Women siging about self care
Self-care is a concept that is gaining a lot of attention and momentum right now.  This is an important practice, especially when going through a stressful period or health crisis in your life.

When we are dealing with tough times in our lives, the things we enjoy doing like going to the gym, eating healthy, meditating or relaxing are usually the first things to go.  

This allows stress to build up and after a certain amount of time, you start feeling depleted, overwhelmed and begin to experience physical symptoms.

In today’s society, we all have busy lives but taking care of yourself means keeping your stress from taking over so that you can function at full capacity and deal with daily responsibilities in an effective manner without sacrificing your health, well-being, and ability to enjoy life.  

So, look at Self-care like an investment, every moment that you spend taking care of yourself will provide you dividends. You will notice that you will experience higher energy levels, an improved outlook, and increased creative abilities that can help you maintain positive and meaningful relationships. 
 
In addition, here are the top 10 examples of Self-care practices to add to your routine. They’re easy to practice daily too:
  • Deep Breathing
  • Nature walks
  • Exercise(try yoga, tai chi, Qigong).
  • Journaling
  • Prayer
  • Being in silence
  • Mindfulness
  • Take a nap
  • Listen to Calm Music
  • Meditation

Also, if you are going through a health crisis or struggling with a painful condition, request a free consultation.
