I first want to say sorry for my absence on the page. As Im going to cover today self-care Ive been taking care of myself. Self care is very important and there are different ways to care for ourselves.

How do you care for yourself? Do you get enough sleep? Eat a well balanced diet? Do you feel you are adequately taking care of yourself emotions, mentally, physically and spiritually?

In order for us to take care of ourselves as we should we got to assess different areas where we need more attention. Everyone is different and has different needs so by assessing your individual needs you can figure out a individual plan to best suit your needs at the same time providing yourself with the self care you need. By taking care of ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually only then are we providing self care successfully.

By productively providing and making time for us to care for ourselves we can see our ending results. We can not help others if we are not caring for ourselves, this requires making “me time” that may be meditation, prayer, making or creating a social life to meet our social needs as a whole person. All the pieces go together as a whole in order to successfully produce self- care.

for me I know this can be difficult personally due to struggling with cp related issues and a seizure disorder can be difficult to get all the pieces in but the only thing we can do is try our best to provide self-care our ourselves.

Be good to yourself today, take time for some self care so you can be 100% to be there for your family and friends. Happy reading!
