If we were accustomed to being listened to and our feelings validated and attended to as children, it is likely easier for us to have self-care.  If we weren’t used to being listened to and our feelings and needs validated and attended to as children, it is likely more challenging to give ourselves the self-care that we need as adults.  In my own life, I work at this daily and at times it feels like a lot of work yet I am aware of the importance of doing so for my physical and emotional health.

Awareness of what we need along with making good choices for ourselves is key to our well-being. –Emotional care- such as allowing ourselves room to feel our feelings and giving ourselves permission to feel our truth.  -Physical care– such as exercising, eating healthy, drinking water, sleeping and resting –Social care– such as having the right balance of work, hobbies and interests and social/emotional connection with family/friends.

The choices we make with respect to all areas of our lives, significantly impacts our emotional and physical health.  Self-Care, one step at a time…
