Self Care and Mental Fitness
Ideally, we all engage in regular self-care in which we do the things that make us feel taken care of mentally, physically, and emotionally. But this doesn’t always happen, and we may need to stop and take the time to remind ourselves we are important, too.
Sometimes our feelings become too much and we need to distract ourselves until we are better able to cope. We can also strategically change how we are feeling when things become too overwhelming.
WHAT IS SELF-CARE?
Self-care is important to maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself. It means doing things to take care of our minds, bodies, and souls by engaging in activities that promote well-being and reduce stress. Doing so enhances our ability to live fully, vibrantly, and effectively. The practice of self-care also reminds both you and others that your needs are valid and a priority.
EXAMPLES OF SELF-CARE
- Cook or bake
- Cross something off your to-do list
- Get a massage
- Go for a walk
- Listen to music or a podcast
- Make art
- Mindfulness exercises
- Play a game
- Practice deep breathing
- Take a bath
- Take a (timed) nap
- Watch TV or a movie
