There are many different types of self-care.
How to Improve Your Self Care
Journaling—write down your thoughts and feelings
Mindfulness—puts you in the present to slow you down when things are moving oo fast
Limit your use of Technology–we tend to get lost and forget to take time for ourselves and spend time with smartphones or on the Internet
Sleep–create a healthy sleep routine by getting up at the same time each day even on the weekends and going to bed at the same time each night
Diet and Exercise–it’s important to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. A nutritionist can help you with meal plans and a trainer can help you with an exercise plan
Meditation–increases concentration, can help regulate your mood, and help reset your attitude
Create boundaries–become aware of what going on around you and what you need in your life now and what you can get rid of
We often forget about taking care of ourselves when we’re busy taking care of someone else, especially when it comes to taking care of a loved one who’s in failing health.
How many times have you heard a doctor tell or you have to take care of yourself too or you could be killing yourself in the process.
The Different Types of Self Care
Self-care can be physical—doing what makes you feel good like exercise
Self-care can be emotional–finding your inner peace by looking within to understand what you’re feeling on an emotional level
Self Care can be personal—taking care of yourself by setting goals, getting to know yourself and who you really are
Self-care can be social— working on and cultivating a relationship with friends
Self-care can be spiritual—learning about what g-d means to you, even discussing your beliefs with someone else, but don’t try to make them believe what you do—everyone comes to their own religious and spiritual beliefs based on whatever religion they’re raised in.
