Yesterday (July 24) was International Self-Care Day.
What does “self-care” look like for you? It can be as different & varied as the person describing it!
For me, self-care is about listening to what I need, so it changes often–sometimes that could be a long strenuous hike thru the bush, other times it could be just sitting outdoors in the fresh air & sunshine.
For me it’s being in the bush, listening to the birds, swimming, kayaking, 4 wheeling – basically the bush is my zen 🙂
Taking time for yourself… I finally read a novel for the first time in 5 years front to back… not school…no work… just a cheesy novel 🙂
Filling up your own well so that you have the resources so you can help others fill up their own.
It is being able to exercise consistently. Sometimes life gets in the way of my exercise routine and when I get back to it, I realize how important it is to my self-care and how grumpy I am when I’m not exercising in some way.
Self-care refers to intentional actions and practices individuals engage in to promote their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It involves recognizing and addressing personal needs, reducing stress, and maintaining a healthy balance in life. This can include exercise, relaxation, mindfulness, healthy eating, socializing, and setting boundaries to ensure overall health and vitality. I personally prefer to read short stories especially fictional stories.
E.g. suggest additional content or a new source, ask a question, etc.
E.g. grammar error or typo, broken link, incorrect data, etc.
