Self-care, a term used vaguely and repeatedly, but what does it really mean?
It is the harmony between your body, mind, and soul, a melody keeping you upbeat and in sync with your own self. It is important to first realize, and then act upon the value of self-care in our day-to-day business of life. What does it mean to understand your own self? Why is it important to be aware of your needs, likes, and dislikes? The mantra is simple,
“When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.” - Jean Shinoda Bolen
To know what makes you feel valued, virtuous, and grounded to your roots is the ultimate path to a better lifestyle. Humanity relies on the ground of self-care in this era of coping mechanisms. These past few months have been a constant test of our beliefs and our strength, and to fight this inside out, it is imperative we take a cautious look within our own self before lending another hand to those around us.
It is not easy waking up to another breathtaking headline, not being able to meet friends and family, the constant anxiety of picking up a phone call not knowing what words are going to be exchanged next. As we fight this together, one step at a time, let's also focus on ourselves by making goals for ourselves.
