Self-care means taking care of your mental, emotional, and physical health. In other words, doing things that make you happy, help you to relax, and you know will benefit you. Self-care can help you create healthy relationships with others, reduce anxiety, and improve your happiness.
- Set aside 10-30 minutes for an activity you enjoy.
Try a relaxing activity like yoga, meditation, or listening to music
Find a creative outlet that you enjoy such as drawing, painting, photography, making movies.
- Get enough sleep.
- Spend time with your family–your chosen family or the family you were born into.
- Give to others! We can be generous with our time, money, resources, skills, power, and attention.
- Reach out to a friend! You may be like umm, but just texting “hey” and seeing where it leads can help you too.
