The Importance of Self-Care
Self-care may seem like self-indulgence, but it's more vital than ever to take the time to check in and care for your mind and body. Not only does it help you feel more balanced and in-tune with yourself, but it also helps reduce stress, enhance levels of productivity, increase energy throughout the day, and boost your emotional awareness and intuition. A helpful tip: break down self-care actions into luxuries and non-negotiables. For example, luxuries could be self-care actions like soaking in a bubble bath or treating yourself with a facial mask. On the other hand, non-negotiables are activities like exercising, meditation, or setting boundaries with work or friends–that cause you to feel off your game if you neglect them.
