We read and talk about self-care all the time. It's such a simple concept essential to the maintenance of good physical, mental, and psychological health.
It is vital for stress management, yet so often we overlook the need to care for ourselves in the rush to finish all the tasks that demand our attention.
This colorful infographic looks at eight different aspects of self-care, a reminder that life has many parts and that failure to look after even one of them could upset your entire self-care regime. Taking a careful look at the various facets will help you to consider the interconnections between them.
Setting boundaries and managing time at work should, for example, free up time that you could use to socialize, take up a hobby, or explore your creativity. By learning to say no, you say yes to the pastimes that are really important to you. When you choose what to do and what not to do, you make more time for the important people in your life.
Don't forget to set aside time to do regular exercise! It's a great way to manage the burden of stress. The same goes for getting your financial house in order. Eat well, sleep well, exercise, and make time to do the things you love and you’ll soon be well on the way to a happier, healthier life.
