Self-Care: Treating yourself

We all have those times in our lives where we are too busy to worry about taking time for ourselves. However, practicing self-care, or taking an active role in protecting your own physical and mental well-being, in particular during periods of stress, is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Practicing self-care can help reduce stress, boost self-esteem, help create a healthy work/life balance, and promote better physical health. Self-care is different for every person but self-care can include: eating healthy, exercising, visiting a spa, meditation, engaging in hobbies, and starting a journal, just to name a few examples.
