Self Care is any intentional plan to take care of your own personal needs(Self).
The question today is how do you define self care? Many things in life are viewed differently based on the interpretation of the individual.
According to some it’s is defined
as “to treat yourself”.
According to the World Health Organization(The WHO)
“Self care is what people do for themselves to establish and maintain health and to prevent and deal with illness ”
Other definitions refer to self care as activities done to enhance health, prevent disease, limit illness and restore overall health .
A simple definition of self care is doing what is necessary to take care of you.
Many of us have multiple roles and duties and we find the attention being off of taking care of ourselves which in turn leads to health issues that causes us to stop. Therefore it is vital that we set aside time to take care of our selves.
