Why it is important to take care of yourself?
How to make self-care a priority?
- Set aside time to take care of yourself: Just as we set aside time for work or for others, we must also set aside time for ourselves. It can be as little as 10 minutes a day, but should be non-negotiable and treated like an important meeting.
Strategies for exercising self-care
- Get Adequate Sleep: Adequate sleep is essential to our physical and mental health. Make sleep a priority and establish a consistent sleep schedule to ensure you get adequate rest.
- Connecting with Others: Socializing is important to our mental and emotional well-being. Take the time to connect with loved ones or join communities that share your interests.
