Self care is a very important aspect of our lives. It is all about caring for yourself to assure a personal healthy lifestyle. We can care for ourselves through practicing engagement in strategies that benefit our physical, emotional and spiritual needs. 

According to, the stress-relief activities we can practice will not benefit us unless we take care of ourselves properly. There are many forms of self care that anyone can practice; it could be something as simple as getting enough sleep, drinking a lot of water or eating nutritious and healthy foods.

Self care is vital for our well being and health. We can take simple steps every day that lead us closer to the best version of ourselves. According to, self care is anything that we can do for ourselves that feels nourishing. It is important to nourish ourselves even when we don’t feel we need to. 

Caring for ourselves can help in the future by making ourselves more confident in our own skin and even making life more comfortable and enjoyable.
