Are you meeting your own needs?
It’s crucial for you to take time to relax, rejuvenate and attain well being. Self-care can include activities such as getting a haircut or massage, taking a trip, or eating at one’s favorite restaurant, as well as attending to one’s basic daily needs.
If you’re struggling with self-care here are some potential reasons:
dealing with depression; this automatically affects overall energy and mood.
Stress; caused by work, daily chores/ responsibilities, too many tasks at once and deadlines.
Relationships; you put in a load of effort to keep relationships in a good standing, you start to forget about your own being.
It’s okay to think about yourself at times. Taking care of your needs is not frowned upon. Everyone needs a mental break every now and then to come back even stronger.
Maintaining emotional self- care can consist of:
setting boundaries with people. Attaining a positive and supportive group.
Managing stress, anxiety, anger and or sadness.
Make friends with people who value your needs just as much as their own.
