|Example and tips shared by Mrs. Stoner|
It is important that we are mindful of attending to our own self care routines. Self-care is the intentional behaviors and actions a person does to protect and improve one’s own well-being. Having a strong self-care foundation is always helpful but it is essential during periods of stress.
When we make a commitment to self-care by integrating it into our daily lives we are creating the habits necessary to sustain our overall health and well being. The “roots” of our daily self-care habits create the strength and resilience to persevere through the stressors that we may face.
We need to tend to ourselves daily to enhance our social, mental, spiritual, and physical well being. What does your self-care routine look like? Are you taking time daily for you? You deserve and need to care for yourself so that it allows us to better care for others in our lives.
