The Importance of Self-Care

Life is pretty hectic and there is no sugarcoating that fact. You wake up early, end up rushing from place to place in order to get everything done for the day, in the middle you struggle to properly feed yourself and then by the end of the day, you’re exhausted and can’t wait to go to bed. Going through the same routine every single day, without any rest and coupled with daily life stressors and other events do tend to take a toll on our physical and emotional health. We end up feeling lethargic, drained, and tired and we don’t feel motivated to do things. This becomes even more demanding if you’re struggling with illness whilst going through all of this.

Overtime, this can worsen your health or make you lose your emotional balance, making you vulnerable to other illnesses. This is where self-care needs to be incorporated into your daily routine. Now the idea of self-care might be a little vague but it can be better explained by doing any sort of deliberate, self-initiated act that helps in order to stay physically, emotionally and mentally healthy. Now what may account as self-care for one person might not necessarily fall under self-care for someone else.

A number of activities can come under self-care like exercising, yoga, cooking, taking a long shower, going for a pedicure etc. Basically, these are activities that help calm you, make you feel more in control and at the same time, better about yourself as well. Regular self-control can help keep you motivated and stable in every way.
