Self-care is a general term that describes everything you do for your mental, physical, and emotional well-being. As simple as it sounds, many of us actually pay little attention to self-care.
Taking time out to care for yourself can remind you and others that you and your needs are important, too. Having a well-cared-for body can make you feel good about yourself and your life, and conveys to others that you value yourself. This can contribute to long-term feelings of well-being.
