Hi guys, I wrote on this topic called self care and our mental health. So I decided to share few things on the topic before sharing with the audience to hear people's views about the topic. I decided to divide this article into two parts to aid easy reading and suggestions.
To me, Self care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it’s a simple concept in theory, it’s something we very often overlook.
Good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It is also key to a good relationship with oneself and others.In a nutshell, self-care is the key to living a balanced life.
Do you know that self-care is something that needs to be actively planned?. rather than something that just happens.Self care is not a random act. It is an active choice and you must treat it as such.
Keeping a conscious mind is what counts. In other words if you don’t see something as self-care or don’t do something in order to take care of yourself, it won’t work as such.
Be aware of what you do, why you do it, how it feels, and what the outcomes are. Self-care doesn’t have to be time consuming, physically draining, or costly.
In fact, sometimes it is the quick, simple things that are happening on a regular basis that keep us rejuvenated.Self-care is something that we can’t and shouldn’t have to compromise on.
We all have mental health, and it is vital that we nurture our health and well-being by practising self-care.
Kindly give me suggestions on this topic, how to relate self care with our mental health.thanks
