Self-care is important to maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself. It means doing things to take care of our minds, bodies, and souls by engaging in activities that promote well-being and reduce stress. Doing so enhances our ability to live fully, vibrantly, and effectively. The practice of self-care also reminds both you and others that your needs are valid and a priority.
Create A Self Care Plan
Creating your own self care plan is a great way to remind you to take care of yourself. You can print the template below to help create a plan that works for you. Write your name at the top, then write what you do to keep your mind, body, and spirit healthy in each of the boxes provided. Finally, list three or more supportive people in your life. These are the people you can go to when you are struggling. Make sure you also list what you would like to accomplish in life. These can be long term life goals or short term goals. Keep your self care plan in a visible place to revisit it often.
