Self Care is the part of our health care that is often overlooked. Usually because most people think “health care” and they default to what is shared with them at their next appointment with their doctor. Self Care falls on YOU as an individual and I think of it as feeding the body, mind and soul.
Eating well, exercising, sleep, drinking water, etc. are great healthy choices to make but they aren’t considered Self Care. Self Care goes above and beyond the bare necessities.
The most difficult part of Self Care for some women is to not have guilt surrounding it. We may have children, partners, parents, siblings, businesses, bosses, co-workers, volunteer positions, homes to take care of, and more. With all of these responsibilities, over time, many of us have chosen to put ourselves last, behind everyone and everything else in our lives.
Self care may be considered indulgent by some but truly, it can take as little as five to ten minutes a day.
