Taking Care of Yourself

Check and maintain your personal battery with a few self-care tips.

Mental Health Awareness Month is a good reminder for each of us to stop and take stock of our emotional wellness. The World Health Organization has stated that self-care is a critical part of your wellbeing. What is self-care though? It is the step of tending to yourself so that you can better complete what you need to and serve others. Some self-care ideas to try:

  • Read a book
  • Take a bubble bath
  • Take a mental health day
  • Go for a drive
  • Spend time outside
  • Write a list of things you are grateful for
  • Cook a meal for yourself
  • Give yourself a pedicure
  • Go for a walk
  • Listen to music

Self-care can be as simple as you want but the benefits of taking care of yourself cannot be overstated. As this month comes to a close, what are some self-care ideas that you will continue to do?
